I love using SF in UI work... but Myriad was superior for their marketing purposes. The headlines in SF are cold and lifeless.
From John Gruber:
When we look back decades from now, I think we’ll see Myriad as Apple’s Jobs-era typeface, and San Francisco as their Cook-era typeface. For this reason, even though I very much like San Francisco, I find it a little melancholy to watch their use of Myriad fade away.
I'm missing Steve Jobs (and Myriad) too.
Hang on, let me just put on my reading glasses to read that quote on his website
I thought this was a joke at first.
Working on the stuff that matters.
But only US for now.
Everywhere. Wait till it propagate.
Until the Jenkins kicks in :D
It's not available here yet. Wondering if they're using apple-system-font and showing Segoe on windows or embedding the SF font...
They embed the web font.
Not everywhere. Support communities is still in Myriad: https://discussions.apple.com/welcome
They've also removed all typographical hierarchy from the headers in the carousel. For the record, SF has multiple weights.
I preferred Myriad as a marketing typeface precisely because it wasn’t like a system typeface. It’s certainly a more elegant typeface at display sizes. That being said, I’m pleased they’re now treating the whole website consistently instead of mixing Myriad and SF.
Lovely. Can't wait to see this happen on other companies.
