    It's a completely new typeface designed by Apple and not a different version of Roboto.

    It's been close on a hundred years since anyone designed a completely new typeface. The last real innovation in type design was the geometric sans. Apple's version is slightly more closely spaced with a stronger bold:



    (The gif is from Verge and doesn't match the font sizes perfectly, but you get the idea.)
    Both are merely tweaks on the same Humanist Sans pattern that dates back to 1916, with a few grotesque features thrown in.
