Avenir appears in iOS 6 Maps and some Siri screens. Wonder if they’re adding better built in typefaces. pic.twitter.com/EWMF5Ylv— Nathan Bowers (@NathanBowers) June 13, 2012
An interesting Reddit discussion popped up about the discovery of the font in both Maps and Siri, check it out:
Avenir is completely new to iOS, because it does not appear in Apple’s font list for earlier versions of the mobile operating system. According to Fonts.com, designer Adrian Frutiger first released the sans-serif typeface nearly 25 years ago.
What do you think of the typography choice?
