Apple to Add Apple Watch Font to iOS 9 and OS X 10.11?
According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, Apple is planning to update the look of both iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 with a new font that was originally developed for the Apple Watch and is currently used on the wearable device. This new font will replace Helvetica Neue, which was introduced with the release of iOS 7 in 2013. In case you don’t know, the new font is called San Francisco; it was first shown to public last September.
Apple is currently planning to use the new system font developed for the Apple Watch to refresh the looks of iPads, iPhones, and Macs running iOS 9 “Monarch” and OS X 10.11 “Gala,” according to sources with knowledge of the preparations. Current plans call for the Apple-designed San Francisco font to replace Helvetica Neue, which came to iOS 7 in 2013 and OS X Yosemite just last year, beginning with a June debut at WWDC.
Keeping in mind the fact that iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 may be officially unveiled at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June, we may see how the new font will look like pretty soon.
