Apple added the option to install custom fonts and use them in various apps running iOS 13. The rollout was a bit confusing as Apple announced partnerships with vendors like Adobe, but limited its functionality to certain apps. However, you can now download and install custom fonts on your iPhone.
Although a system-wide font system would have been ideal, artists with custom fonts can gain more control over their creations in just a few specific apps. In apps like Photoshop or Pages, designers can set their own tone, mood, and style. In this guide, we'll show you two ways to create custom fonts: the App Store and configuration profiles.
: Find the Fonts Manager.
Before we start installing new custom fonts, it's important to know where you can access them. Custom fonts in iOS 13 are currently only available in selected apps – including mail, pages, and keynote – but this should be expanded very soon, especially with the upcoming release of Photoshop for iOS later this year.
If You Want To access Fonts Manager, you need to call a compatible app. In this example, we access it via Mail. To view the Fonts Manager, create a new e-mail and tap anywhere in the message body. At the top of the keyboard you can see an angle bracket on the far right (less than one character). Tap to access the brand new toolbar. Tap the Aa icon to see your formatting options.
A menu appears instead of the keyboard; Tap "Default Font" to display the Font Manager. You have almost a hundred options to choose from, including Times New Roman, Arial, Courier, Georgia, Helvetica New, Verdana and Marker Felt. If you download custom fonts from the App Store, they will appear in this list.
Now that you're done Knowing where to access your fonts, it's time to download them. You can do this directly from the App Store as if you were downloading an app. Unfortunately, the options are currently very limited, especially for free fonts. This should change as fonts become more popular.
An app that currently works with iOS 13 is Font Diner by developer Mister Retro. You can download it for free from the App Store via the following link.
According to Apple, custom fonts are from Adobe, DynaComware, Monotype, Morisawa, Founder, and more, but there is no set time for publication. Therefore, your options are currently limited.
Step 3: Install custom fonts from the app
If you've downloaded Font Diner, you can now go into the app and install the fonts on your device. However, the installed fonts vary slightly from app to app. Therefore, use this step as a guideline and not as an in-depth guide if you are not using the Font Diner app.
Open Font Diner and you & # 39; The Start tab displays a list of fonts. A total of 23 fonts must be installed as a complete set (see step 4 for removing individual fonts). To install the typesetting, tap Activate in the top right corner, press Agree, and then tap Install. The fonts can now be used on your device.
Are you not sure if your fonts have been installed successfully? iOS 13 includes a new section on your preferences where you can manage any custom fonts that you download and install. Open the app settings and go to General -> Fonts. Here is a list of all installed fonts.
Tap any font to view the application, copyright information, file size, and various fonts. You can tap any font to display the font in the form of letters / numbers, paragraphs, and characters.
If you want to delete a font from your phone, either swipe left over one Font in the list, or tap Edit at the top right, select the fonts you want to delete, and then click Remove. "The second method is preferable if you want to delete multiple fonts at the same time. You can see both options below.
As previously mentioned, custom fonts are only available in some selected apps, including Pages, Numbers, and the Rest of iWorks Office Suite on iOS 13. Coming soon Because other apps support the API, you can use custom fonts in those apps, but little information is available on when third-party apps will support fonts or if ever will. Custom fonts are not working yet ht in mail, whatever the case might be.
To use custom fonts now, open one of the iWorks applications on your iPhone (we'll do it) using pages). Create a new document in Pages and touch the brush icon at the top of the navigation bar to see the formatting options. In the text formatting menu, tap the current font and scroll through the list. All fonts you have installed will be displayed here. Tap the font to select it and enter it. Your text will be displayed in a few fonts.
Apple has approved third-party installation throughout the system "fonts" have been around for a while, but the method is annoying and includes configuration profiles (the if you are not careful, it may cause malicious software to run on your device).
These fonts were not real fonts but only characters and symbols that look like real fonts. However, thanks to iOS 13, this configuration profile method can be used to install true custom fonts, which can then be managed in Fonts Manager and used in applications such as Pages and Numbers.
# 1: Install iFont
First, you need a third-party app that lets you manage your custom fonts before they are installed on your smartphone. There are some of them (FontManager and AnyFont), but our favorite is iFont, which is also free. You can download it via the following link or simply search the App Store.
