    literally nowhere on the page can I inform myself about "apple's new serif typeface: new york", besides the fact that it exists. Title is a bit misleading.

      But you can download the actual font from the page...?

        sure, but you can also download SF Compact, so should the title have been "Apples Sans Serif: San Francisco Compact"? No.

          No.

          SF Compact is not a new font, so it's not news. It's not a serif typeface either. So, no, again.

          It's not poster's responsibility to design a specific web page for the typeface Apple owns. He posted what he saw there, as a news, as it is a news (of a new typeface).

          The title may include “[DOWNLOAD]”, but if the poster’s intention is not about sharing the download link, he would post the link where the content resides.

          He could write “Apple Typefaces (with new New York typeface)”, but then somebody else asked why he didn’t just write it as it is now.
