iOS Fonts


2 of 5 stars
What’s this?

A rundown of (most of) the typefaces available on Apple’s devices, comparing what’s available on iPad versus iPhone. Looking at the full inventory like this, it’s surprising to me to see some of the fonts that Apple deliberately chose to include on the iPad. Zapfino, Copperplate, Bradley Hand and others strike me as running counter to the Apple design sensibility. See the full inventory here.

  1. That’s a good list. If you want to easily try them on the iPad, may I suggest an app we recently released? It’s called image/words. We see it as a a poetic discovery tool for photographers and writers.

    Most of the fonts on the iPad are available in the app (153 in total) through an easy to scroll through menu, and the real fun is how you can pinch the text on-screen. See some screenshots here: image/words
