    iOS 7 Fonts - what do you thing about it?

    Hi guys!
    Monday Apple introduced the new OS with new graphics.

    It's a custom new font I think, but I didn't like so much this font mashed with helvetica.
    What do you think about it?

    Isn't the first their corporate identity typeface? I think it's based on Myriad.

    Letters are so similar, thinners then ever, but numbers are completely different
    Same numbers mashed with helvetica in lock screen
    Not so good to unify sans fonts in this way

    Doubt they'll be using the t w o together though.

    I think it looks good, clear and crisp- that's what a font should be. But i'm biased towards san serifs!

    iOS 7 is a bad news!!

    Apple must learn how to innovate, without losing consistency in form and soul.

    No offence

    I've never been a Myriad (and other humanist fonts) propnt, but that is good-looking 7.

    The letters seem to be set in Myriad Pro (the iOS text in a very thin weight), but the numerals (the 7) seems to be set in Helvetica Neue

    I think it's sleek, clean and simple. It suits Apple's branding quite well.

    i'm most interested to see how it looks in action. i'm surprised the fonts are getting thinner.

    Looks very clean. Something a modern OS should have.. that being said. I'd have to try it out for a couple days to see if the font selection works well with the user experience.

    So the word on the street is that it's too light a typeface for use as body text.

    Erik Spiekermann has his take here:
