Every year, the mobile operating system iOS becomes more open and supports more third-party solutions from independent developers. Recently, users have been able to install fonts on their iPhones and iPads that expand the possibilities for working with text and graphic documents.
Why install new fonts on iOS and iPadOS?
This question will surely arise for many readers, because the standard iOS font looks very beautiful, and it is often used by third-party developers. In fact, we are talking, of course, not about the system font of the platform, but about the supported text "skins" that extend the functionality of programs for working with documents.
In particular, this is due to the fact that with the new capabilities of the latest versions of iOS, not only iPad, but also iPhone Pro are used by users to work with texts, graphics, presentations, etc. At the same time, previously, many documents loaded in Keynote, Pages or another application could previously be displayed incorrectly due to the lack of appropriate fonts in the system, but now this problem can be easily solved.
How to install fonts on an iPhone or iPad
To add fonts, you need to download an application with a font installer from the App Store. As a basic collection, most users will be satisfied with the free Font Diner, which contains over 20 new fonts for iOS. After downloading from the App Store and launching the application for the first time, the user will be prompted to install new fonts.
You can view the fonts installed in iOS (iPadOS) in the Settings → General → Fonts menu.
It should be noted that it is still possible to use the installed fonts in far from all applications, even in the standard ones (Notes). But popular text and image editors already support this feature. For example, to apply an installed font in Pages, tap the brush icon and choose the style of text you like.
Why I chose a font, but nothing changed on the screen
Unfortunately, not all fonts support the Cyrillic alphabet, which means that if you change the font in the text in Russian, the inscription will remain the same. On the other hand, the font applied to the Latin text will be changed.
How to remove fonts on iPhone or iPad
To remove a specific installed font, go to Settings → General → Fonts and click the Edit button. Select the required fonts and click the Delete button.
