determining font size on native apps?

Without having access to the native app code, is there a way to figure out
the font size with respect to color contrast issues?

When checking for contrast issues, I often take a screenshot and send it to
my PC then use a contrast checker on my PC. That usually gets me pretty
close to accurate RGB values.

If the ratio is between 3 and 4.5, then determining if the font is "large"
is needed. I know there are best practices for font sizes on mobile but is
there a decent way to figure out if a font is 18pt (or 14pt bold) in a
native app?
