Apple plans summer update for iPhone OS.

It seems there has been some movement towards a more robust support for fonts. Here’s a quick list of changes we’ll see:
- More support for web fonts
- Custom font support for individual apps (each app can use it’s own private fonts, but not share them)
- Still cannot install fonts at the System level for all apps to use
Also, enhancements have been made to the Accessibility settings panel. A new Large Text feature allows you to adjust font sizes for system alerts and native Apple apps, like Mail and Calendar:
