Using your iPad or iPhone as a design tool is getting more and more popular. Whether you are designing a wedding card, a party invitation, your son’s concert fliers or your new business cards, using a font that catches the eye is really important.

IPads and iPhones have very few and simple system fonts But did you know that you can easily install your own fonts on your iPad/iPhone?

Follow along and we will walk you through the steps in this article.

Download and install installation app

There are several apps you can use in order to install a font on your Apple device, but for this article we are going to use iFont. This application, and other applications like it, let you install fonts in OTF or TTF format.

The iFont app is available in the iTunes Store for free.

Install it, and then we are ready to go!

Download the font

Before you can get started, you need to download the font that you’d like to install on your Apple device. In this example, we are going to use the Sallie font.

When the download is completed, a screen showing the ZIP file will appear. To continue, press More…> Open in iFont’.

Install the font on your iPhone/iPad

After clicking ’Open in iFont’’, you will be redirected to Imported files in iFont.

This is the last step! Click Install to complete the installation. You can now go ahead and enjoy your new font on your iPhone or iPad!

System fonts cannot be changed

Remember that the system font for Apple products cannot be changed. You are, however, free to use your installed fonts in applications such as Cricut, Silhouette, Microsoft Office, and many more.
