Fonts available in various versions of iOS

Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS, is the foundation of the iPhone and iPad. One of the iOS features includes the intuitive user interface we’ve grown to love. This user interface includes elements such as text which, as you can imagine, can be displayed in various fonts. These variety of fonts; however, differ from each iOS version.

As we continue to build for iOS, designers and developers must keep up with the available fonts for these various versions of iOS. That’s why GSW Worldwide’s Interactive Designer/Developer Jared Vorkavich (@jaredvork) compiled a list of fonts available in various versions of iOS.

Jared’s main take-aways are:

  • The fonts available in iOS 4.2.1 and 4.3 are 98% the same.
  • Some font weights shown in the Typefaces app don’t render in Mobile Safari and therefore have been removed them from the list. (Most unfortunate are the extra weights of Helvetica.)
  • There are fewer fonts available for iPhone than for iPad, even when running the same version of iOS.
