iPhone OS 4 fonts

Apple plans summer update for iPhone OS.

With the iPhone OS 4 update scheduled for this summer, what changes in font management can we expect?

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:

Stay tuned for more updates about the iPhone/iPad font situation.
