What font / color is used for section headers?

Forums > SwiftUI


Does any one know exctly what font is used by default in Section headers?

                Section(header: Text("AN AMAZING SECTION HEADER")) {

It looks like

.font(.system(size: 15, weight: .regular, design: .rounded))

but that seems not exactly the same font.

Thank you!


Hi, It looks a lot like


if not the same, i checked in apple design resources and it says SF Pro, Regular, 13pt.


Hi @flaneur7508! Off topic, noticed while helping you earlier that you often used font modifier .font(.system(size: 15, weight: .regular, design: .rounded))

Wouldn't be it much easier for you to create custom modifer and pass, say, size only. Saves a least some keystrokes while coding :). Well, if there is no good reason to do otherwise of course..

struct AppText: ViewModifier {
    var size: CGFloat

    func body(content: Content) -> some View {
            .font(.system(size: size, weight: .regular, design: .rounded))

extension View {
    func appText(_ size: CGFloat) -> some View {
        modifier(AppText(size: size))

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        VStack {
            Image(systemName: "globe")
            Text("Hello, world!")
                .appText(25) // <- You will just type this instead that long code you used.
