How to lose margin/padding in UITextView?

I have a UITextView in my iOS Application, which displays a large amount of text. I am then paging this text by using the offset margin parameter of the UITextView. My problem is that the padding of the UITextView is confusing my calculations as it seems to be different depending on the font size and typeface that I use.

Therefore, I pose the question: Is it possible to remove the padding surrounding the content of the UITextView?

Look forward to hearing your responses!

For iOS 7.0, I've found that the contentInset trick no longer works. This is the code I used to get rid of the margin/padding in iOS 7.

This brings the left edge of the text to the left edge of the container:

textView.textContainer.lineFragmentPadding = 0

This causes the top of the text to align with the top of the container

textView.textContainerInset = .zero

Both Lines are needed to completely remove the margin/padding.
