At the WWDC 2019, Apple announced iOS 13, macOS Catalina and ultra powerful Mac Pro. However, what retains our special attention is New York — a gorgeous serif typeface to pair with the earlier released San Francisco or to play solo.
The new font is available in four sizes and six weights, comes with multilingual support and sounds like a counterpart to another New York designed by Susan Kare in 1983 for the Macintosh. However, these are unrelated in any aspect, but for the name.
It’s interesting that New York marks the beginning of the new era, also announced at the conference: the iOS 13 is to offer the ability to implement custom fonts across the apps. So, along with Apple-made San Francisco and New York, the fonts from Adobe, DynaComware, Monotype, Morisawa, and Founder will be added to the App Store.
Back to New York typeface, it’s already available for all Apple maniacs — so if you are the one, it’s your chance to be among the first ones to give it a go. Just come and download it for free from the Apple Developer website.
