With iOS 13, Apple has reworked the way you can install and use custom fonts on your iPhone or iPad. While in the past it was possible to download and use non-system fonts on your Apple phone or tablet, they were complex and limited. With iOS 13, Apple wants to make downloading and switching fonts into an integrated experience. However, these features are currently limited to a few apps, such as Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, unlike any app you own. The new mobile font technology is still fresh and somewhat tricky, but promises a variety of apps for the future. Here's how to get started with basic third-party fonts in iOS 1
With the new operating system, you can install custom fonts and apply them to compatible apps by downloading certain font apps from the App Store manage the settings. To control these new fonts, you'll need to work through the app that you want to use them with. Using third-party fonts on iOS differs from using third-party keyboards.
How to Control Fonts on iOS 13
Even if you can not use all of the third-party fonts in Apple Mail (those from Adobe, you can still use the app to get insight into the iOS font manager At this point, your mileage may vary, and you can download more fonts for mail and other apps.
- In the top right corner of the keyboard, note an angle bracket and tap to access the new toolbar.
- Tap To see the available formatting options, click the [AaAA] button
- Tap Default Font to display the Font Manager, which contains all the latest fonts, and any new fonts that you download will also appear in this At the moment, you may be able to see them, but some have not been loaded for use in the app.
- Go to Settings> General> Fonts and you will see a list of all installed fonts and also the prompt to download fonts from the App Store.
- Alternatively, you can access the App Store directly from the main screen of your phone.

Currently, the free font options are extremely limited, as well as font apps that are compatible with the more straightforward installation schema of iOS 13. We anticipate that additional custom fonts will be available over time. This is a welcome addition for iPad artists, designers, teachers and kids. With the addition of Pro Level fonts, users can use their mobile devices for truly professional work. Adobe has already jumped in the ring. Adobe has provided many fonts that you can download from the Creative Cloud iOS app for use in Photoshop for iPad and Apple's own iOS Office suite. You do not need to be a Creative Cloud subscriber to access Adobe's fonts. However, you need to set up a free Creative Cloud account. Another app that currently works with iOS 13 is Font Diner, which offers a number of options for free use.
The methods for downloading and installing fonts vary at this time, even on iOS 13, so not all apps expect you to behave like that. The free installation of the Fonteer app works a little bit differently than Font Diner, as does iFont, but you can group fonts from Google Fonts and Font Squirrel together.
To delete a character set, go to Settings> General> Fonts and either swipe left over a font in the list, or tap Edit select the fonts to be deleted, and then tap Remove .
How To Use Your New Fonts
Currently, custom fonts for iOS devices are usually only available for Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. The Adobe font was the only one that could be used in Apple Mail. Although more apps are expected to come aboard, the schedule in those early days is unclear.
- To use custom fonts right now, launch one of Apple's productivity apps on your iPhone or iPad.
- For example, in Pages Create a new document and tap the brush icon at the top to see the formatting options.
- Tap the ABC icon to display the available fonts.
