iOS text alignment inconsistencies

It looks like a fonts descent is not considered when vertically centering text from an AttributedString in TextLayout on iOS. See the attached screenshots. macOS renders as expected. The transparent white highlighted area is {0, area.getHeight() / 2 - font.getHeight() / 2, width, font.getHeight()} the white line should represent the baseline and is the above rectangle getY() + font.getAscent(). I can fix iOS rendering by doing

#if JUCE_IOS
area.translate(0.0f, -font.getDescent());
#endif

before rendering the TextLayout in area.


EDIT: Changed iOS screenshot for a version that doesn’t hide the problem behind JPEG compression artefacts.
