Apple Website Finally Adopts ‘San Francisco’ Web Font
Take a look a the quick comparison image of the changes we made below:
Apple debuted the San Francisco font with Apple Watch in 2015, and since then it has made its way to the back of the iPhone 7 and even the keys on the 2016 MacBook Pro.
John Gruber from Daring Fireball said back in September, “When we look back decades from now, I think we’ll see Myriad as Apple’s Jobs-era typeface, and San Francisco as their Cook-era typeface. For this reason, even though I very much like San Francisco, I find it a little melancholy to watch their use of Myriad fade away.”
When iOS 9 debuted, it also adopted San Francisco, replacing Helvetica Neue, which was created in 1957 in Switzerland, a time when digital devices were pretty much non-existent. San Francisco is a clearer font for today’s various devices and screen sizes, as is it optimized dynamically, with systems changing display and text fonts based on text size.
