The default state colors can be customized using the CheckedColor and UncheckedColor properties. The checked/indeterminate state color is updated to the CheckedColor property value when the state is changed to the checked/indeterminate.The unchecked state color is updated to the UncheckedColor property value when the state is changed to unchecked.

SfCheckBox check = new SfCheckBox();
check.SetTitle("CheckBox", UIControlState.Normal);
check.IsChecked = true;
check.CheckedColor = UIColor.Green;
SfCheckBox uncheck = new SfCheckBox();
uncheck.UncheckedColor = UIColor.FromRGB(238, 130, 238);
SfCheckBox indeterminate = new SfCheckBox();
indeterminate.IsChecked = null;
indeterminate.IsThreeState = true;
indeterminate.SetTitle("CheckBox", UIControlState.Normal);
indeterminate.CheckedColor = UIColor.Purple;
