how to draw text in center to uiimage?

I want to set my text Sold Out to the center in UIimage. but it not in center .

func textToImage(drawText text: NSString, inImage image: UIImage, atPoint point: CGPoint) -> UIImage {

let textColor = UIColor.white
let textFont = UIFont(name: "Helvetica Bold", size: 32)!

let scale = UIScreen.main.scale
UIGraphicsBeginImageContextWithOptions(image.size, false, scale)

let textFontAttributes = [
NSFontAttributeName: textFont,
NSForegroundColorAttributeName: textColor,
] as [String : Any]

image.draw(in: CGRect(origin:, size: image.size))
// let rect = CGRect(origin: point , size: image.size)
let rect = CGRect(origin: CGPoint(x:(image.size.width/2), y: (image.size.height/2)), size: image.size)

text.draw(in: rect, withAttributes: textFontAttributes)

let newImage = UIGraphicsGetImageFromCurrentImageContext()

return newImage!

caller function

imageViewSoldStatus.image = textToImage(drawText: "Sold out", inImage: UIImage(named:"soldout.png")!, atPoint: CGPoint(x: 5.0, y: 5.0))

I have spent of very long time to solve this problem but I could not find any solution.

Try this:

func textToImage(drawText text: NSString, inImage image: UIImage) -> UIImage {
    image.draw(in: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: image.size.width, height: image.size.height))

    let font=UIFont(name: "Helvetica-Bold", size: 32)!
    let text_style=NSMutableParagraphStyle()
    let text_color=UIColor.white
    let attributes=[NSFontAttributeName:font, NSParagraphStyleAttributeName:text_style, NSForegroundColorAttributeName:text_color]
    let text_rect=CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: image.size.width, height: image.size.height)
    text.draw(in: text_rect.integral, withAttributes: attributes)
    let result=UIGraphicsGetImageFromCurrentImageContext()
