How can I both stroke and fill with NSAttributedString w/ UILabel

Yes, the key is to apply a Negative value to the NSStrokeWidthAttributeName
If this value is positive you will only see the stroke and not the fill.

Objective-C:

self.label.attributedText=[[NSAttributedString alloc] 
initWithString:@"string to both stroke and fill" 
attributes:@{
             NSStrokeWidthAttributeName: @-3.0,
             NSStrokeColorAttributeName:[UIColor yellowColor],
             NSForegroundColorAttributeName:[UIColor redColor]
             }
];
