iOS 9 San Francisco font. Cannot unsee Comic Sans.
on Sep 19, 2015 at 9:51:00 pm

Anyone else?

Every time I read my email I feel like my "Great Aunt Edna" dialed up AOL and wrote me a the latest synopsis of deep Midwestern living, whatever that means. She always wrote in Comic Sans. To Edna's credit, she would also choose a whimsical background pattern to go with it. How fun. And bubbly.

But now, all my supposed business emails look like dear ole Edna's. My brain is half short circuiting on whether or not I need to take my client emails seriously or respond with a whimsical background of my own, like a sandy beach with a seashell.

With a glass half full, I give 'props' to Auntie Edna. I would have never guessed she would be the internet futurist that she turned out to be.

I have other issues with the newest iOS release, but that's not one of them.

Yo APPL, Comic Sans is a MICROSOFT font.

haha,


when I first saw it in screenshots, I hated it. I thought it really looked Windowsy, for a lack of a better word.
Now that I have it on my iPhone 4S and my iPad Air, I'm starting to warm up to it. I still think the Compact version (that they use for the Watch and some small areas in iOS 9) looks really ugly, but the regular version is 'okay'. Esthetically, I still love Helvetica Neue a lot more, but I get that readability on small heights can be better with the new font.

BTW, I'm very happy with IOS 9, even on my iPhone 4S, the lowest supported hardware, it seems to work better and with more battery life then iOS 8.

What is everyone talking about? I don't see any change on my phone. You're seeing some sort of handwritten comic sans type font?

No.

But, for whatever reason, Comic Sans has a similarity to San(s) Francisco to me. It's round and bubbly and causes weird letter spacing.

I do like the iOS 9 functionality, though.

I don't see any font change. Where do you see it. My email just looks like Helvetia, Arial, Verdana etc. Haven't paid much attention to exactly what flavor. Certainly nothing bubbly or comical.

in IOS 9 (as well as in El Capitan when it will be released) the system font is changed from Helvetica Neue to the Apple-developed San Francisco Font.
Sometimes they look a bit like each other, in some cases they differ.
You can see it very quickly in numbers.

They're extremely similar. And if I had to choose I suppose I'd choose the tighter helvetica neue. But there is nothing even remotely similar to comic sans in my eyes.

It does, and I don't think it looks like Comic Sans.

For whatever reason, the spacing and roundness reminds of Comic Sans.

And I can't unsee it.

I don't see any roundness or anything at all similar to comic sans.

Don't worry Jeremy, when 9.1 (and El Capitan) drop, you'll get this to make up for it... :-)

That emoji will definitely make the El Capitan worth the cost of an upgrade.

That's an email from my aunt in a nutshell. Comic Sans and a raised middle finger.

Raising mine at Apple since I can longer request a desktop version of a website in Safari since the latest iOS update. Darn that update. Grrrrr

David,

about not being able to request a Desktop Site: are you sure it's not WORKING for you? I'm just mentioning, because the feature got MOVED. I think it's now under the Share icon, and one of the actions underneath. Hope it helps,

Found it and it works! Why they had to move it, who knows. Egg on face.

You can also gain quick access to it by holding a finger on the refresh icon in the address bar. It should then pop up a menu containing "Request Desktop Site"

ok, you could hold your thumb on the icon or a toe or your nose or....

Looking forward to that feature, just wondering if 3D poop will be supported in Apple Motion along with Final Cut Pro X, that is an important feature to have.
