Calculate Font Size to Fit Frame - Core Text - NSAttributedString - iOS

I have some text which I am drawing into a fixed frame via an NSAttributedString (code below). At the moment I am hard coding the text size to 16. My question is, is there a way to calculate the best fit size for the text for the given frame ?

- (void)drawText:(CGContextRef)contextP startX:(float)x startY:(float)
y withText:(NSString *)standString
{
    CGContextTranslateCTM(contextP, 0, (bottom-top)*2);
    CGContextScaleCTM(contextP, 1.0, -1.0);

    CGRect frameText = CGRectMake(1, 0, (right-left)*2, (bottom-top)*2);

    NSMutableAttributedString * attrString = [[NSMutableAttributedString alloc] initWithString:standString];
    [attrString addAttribute:NSFontAttributeName
                      value:[UIFont fontWithName:@"Helvetica-Bold" size:16.0]
                      range:NSMakeRange(0, attrString.length)];

    CTFramesetterRef framesetter = CTFramesetterCreateWithAttributedString((__bridge CFAttributedStringRef)(attrString));
    struct CGPath * p = CGPathCreateMutable();
    CGPathAddRect(p, NULL, frameText);
    CTFrameRef frame = CTFramesetterCreateFrame(framesetter, CFRangeMake(0,0), p, NULL);

    CTFrameDraw(frame, contextP);
}

The only way I can see this being possible is to have a system that runs the size calculation then adjusts the size and repeats until it finds the right size.

I.e. set up a bisecting algorithm that goes between certain sizes.

i.e. run it for size 10. Too small. Size 20. Too small. Size 30. Too big. Size 25. Too small. Size 27. Just right, use size 27.

You could even start in hundreds.

Size 100. Too big. Size 50. etc...


Here is a simple piece of code that will figure out the maximum font size to fit within the bounds of a frame:

UILabel *label = [[UILabel alloc] initWithFrame:frame];
label.text = @"Some text";
float largestFontSize = 12;
while ([label.text sizeWithAttributes:@{NSFontAttributeName:[UIFont systemFontOfSize:largestFontSize]}].width > modifierFrame.size.width)
{
     largestFontSize--;
}
label.font = [UIFont systemFontOfSize:largestFontSize];
