• Apple Releases its San Francisco Font to Developers



    Apple recently made its San Francisco system font available for developers to download. The font is currently works on next-gen apps for iOS 9, OS X El Capitan and watchOS 2. For those of you who didn’t know, the typeface, which first debuted in compact form on the Apple Watch, it is specifically designed for maximum clarity and readability, with plans to take over all three Apple platforms this fall.

    The San Francisco font supports iOS Dynamic Type to adjust letter spacing and line height dynamically, which is all dependent on font size selected. Alongside its San Francisco typeface, Apple’s system font webpage offers developers’ access to the TextKit API for font handling, the Apple Font Tool Suite and specifications for the TrueType Font Format and Apple Advanced Typography (AAT) Font Feature Registry.

    The Cupertino California company previously made the Apple Watch version of the San Francisco font available to developers alongside Photoshop templates for mocking up app graphics. Developers can download Apple’s new San Francisco font packages through the Developer Portal on the Apple site.
