Designers Rejoice: Install Any Font on any iOS Device

 

If you are like me, more and more your iOS device (or maybe even just your phone) is becoming your main computing device.  However, there are still some limitations that iOS devices suffer from that their general computing counterparts do have.  That being font support.

With an app called AnyFont and an configurations files, you can add fonts in TrueTypeFont- (.ttf), OpenTypeFont- (.otf) or TrueType Collection- (.ttc) format on your iPhone and iPad – no jailbreak required!

  1. Download and install AnyFont on your iPhone.
  2. Once the app is settled on your phone screen, launch it and tap on the font file.
  3. Now tap on Aa icon.
  4. You need to tap on Install from the top right corner.
  5. Tap Next from top right corner of phone screen.
  6. A message appears on your phone screen telling you that the configuration profile will install this font.
  7. Tap on Next.
  8. Tap Install once again.
  9. Tap Done.
  10. You can check the fonts by tapping Settings → General → Profiles.

You can also use custom fonts that you have stored in the cloud by downloading the file and using the iOS share sheet to Open In AnyFont.

System level font are supported in the Microsoft Office, Apple’s iWork, Pages, Keynote etc. but please note if you are already working on these apps, simply shut down them and then reopen the apps to get the fonts.
