Font size doesn't even match device it was designed for

I’ve created a new frame using iPhone 11 Pro, set the font family to Inter, font size to 14, and font weight to semi-bold.

If I then compare the actual pixel size of that text using the Figma app on that exact (physical) device to the actual pixel size of the same font setting passed to iOS through a real implemented app I get a relatively large discrepancy of 10% (Figma being the larger). Why is that? How can I work with my design if none of the sizes they use in their design matches what I see on the real device, even the one they designed for?
