There's actually a property on UILabel to set the number of lines it can use. You can either set it to an explicit number of lines, or you can set it to 0, and it'll use as many as it needs. You can try this:

// Let the label use an unlimited amount of lines
label.numberOfLines = 0
// Resize the label so you can see all the text inside
