    I think he means for what products and interfaces. The iPod font is different from the font on the website. The iPod OS font is different. Not very good examples but he means which one in particular.

    Oh, sorry. The regular font on the Apple page. Right now, the iMac review - what is that font?

    It was called Myriad Apple for a while. Don't know if that's the same one, though.

    Looks like someone's a tad bit grumpy today.

    I was asking what font they used for what? There's all different fonts that Apple uses in their products. How can you just ask "What font does Apple use?".

    Jeezee....:p

    The font used for the headings on the apple website is Adobe MyriadPro Semibold.

    How come myriad only appears on Adobe apps, is there a way to make it available in all apps?

    you'll find the adobe fonts under their respective application folders, eg. 'Applications\adobe illustrator\fonts\' and then just copy them into your main fonts folder in your library, or point fontbook at them and install them that way.

    And all this time I thought it was Apple Garamond. Hmmm, oh well. :p So that's why Myriad is always the default font for Adobe Illustrator...

    It depends if the application supports OpenType fonts, which Myriad Pro is.

    Yep, that one, Myriad Apple, is the correct version. It's slightly lighter at equivalent weights than Myriad Pro, and it includes Apple-specific glyphs like their logo.
