How to Change Theme in Xcode

Updated: February 8, 2023 By: A Goodman Post a comment

A theme in Xcode is a combination of background color, text color, font family, font style, cursor style, etc. Many people like dark themes but others prefer light themes or a pale yellow theme. This article shows you how to switch between themes or customize your own theme in Xcode 13.x, 14.x, and newer.

1. Launch your Xcode and go to Xcode > Settings (you can see Preferences instead of Settings):

2. Select the Themes tab from the top menu bar:

3. Pick a pre-made theme from the left-hand sidebar if you want to save time:

4. If you want to edit the current theme to fit your need, just take a look at the lower section. Here you can change the font style, background color, and cursor style…

Note: To safely edit a theme, you should clone it. In order to clone a theme, you can click the plus button in the bottom left corner.

That’s it. Happy coding.
