Apple’s mobile operating system strives to improve every year. iOS 10 is changing a lot of things we have grown accustomed to over a decade with tons of new features and changes. This year, Apple officially announced the successor to iOS 10 with small and welcome additions. Overall, iOS is making what you most much better and quicker.
Despite those improvements, there is something missing, preventing Apple’s mobile OS from getting the perfect score. iOS is a closed operating system, and this allows Apple to limit what you can do with the phone they provide. In iOS, Apple doesn’t allow you to add your custom fonts in apps on your iPhone and iPad, which is a little bit disappointing.
Fortunately, there is a simple workaround for installing fonts on your iPhone and iPad, and all it takes is using a third-party app called All Fonts. All Fonts is a great app that allows you to add any font file in apps like MS Word or Apple’s iWork Suite. The best part is that you don’t need to jailbreak your device to install the app.
In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the steps to install fonts on your iPhone and iPad. Before we begin, make sure that you now have a modern version of iOS.
How to move fonts from your PC to your iPhone or iPad
To install fonts in apps, you first need to transfer them from your PC to your iPhone and iPad. Luckily, All Fonts allows you to transfer font files to your iOS devices without the need for an additional tool. (Before we begin, make sure both devices are now connected to the same Wi-Fi network)
Step one: First off, you need to launch All Fonts on your iPhone or iPad and then head to the Transferred Fonts tab
Step two: Once you are in, you will see the sharing URL at the top of the app. You now need to open your preferred web browser on your PC or Mac and point to the URL that’s shown on the Transferred Fonts tab
Step three: On the next screen, you simply need to drag and drop any font file (hit the Upload button) to this window. Once you are done, all your font files will show up in Transferred Fonts section on your iPhone or iPad.
