In addition to introducing iOS 13, Apple has debuted a serif typeface to join its existing system fonts.
Called ‘New York’, the typeface embodies fundamental qualities of “historical type styles,” Apple describes, and is designed to accompany the sans-serif ‘San Francisco’ as well as work as a standalone.
While the tech giant says the typeface is “all-new,” a serif of the same name was created by Susan Kare for the Macintosh computer in 1983. Further, keen-eyed designers have pointed out that it’s been on Apple’s ‘Books’ app since last fall.
Separately, the company has announced that iOS 13 will allow users to apply custom fonts in their favorite apps, in addition to easily installing typefaces through the App Store.
Apple will dive deeper into what’s new for fonts at its WWDC conference on 6 June at 9am PT.
