Monotype to Make Thousands of Fonts Available on iPhone and iPad for the First Time

Monotype (Nasdaq: TYPE) announced it will take advantage of Apple's (News - Alert) new Custom Font feature announced at WWDC 2019. Monotype will deliver a collection from its extensive font library to iPhone (News - Alert) and iPad users for use across the system, through an app created by Monotype and available for download through the App Store later this year.

Upon downloading the newest version of iOS available later this year, users ranging from casual font fans to creative professionals, will for the first time, receive access to the fonts they want across iPhone and iPad apps, all through the App Store. In addition to new font licenses, users will be able to sync fonts they have already licensed from Monotype's ecommerce channel, to their devics.

"As a leader in font technology, expertise and inventory, we are excited to be providing fonts to more users through the App Store," said Steve Martin, CTO of Monotype. "As more and more creative work migrates to mobile devices and tablets, we see great benefit to the creative professional community by making our vast font library accessible to them across all devices and apps."

More information will be shared later this year with the availability of iOS.
