    Will these forums be updated with Apple's new San Francisco font, replacing Myriad and Verdana?

    It only seems like the right thing to do.

    I don't know if the San Francisco font is web friendly to other browsers.

    It seems like a bad thing to do. (That goes for Apple as well.)

    Apple won't license it for use on a website at any rate.

    It is a milestone in Apple's history. They used Myriad for long before I knew about the company (I'm 19) and since this blog is dedicated to Apple, the header logo is in Myriad, I figured it should reflect their new design changes.

    Sure, probably not the greatest reason for the amount of work involved, so it's whatever. I got bored and felt like posting a comment about it lol.

    Just my own opinion, but I don't see a change in a font is a milestone in Apple's history.

    Ok fine, whatever. Just delete this thread. I could care less. It seems like nobody cares so let's keep the site the same.

    San Francisco is an Apple internal font; no one else can use it besides developers:

    Apple restricts the usage of the typeface by others. It is licensed to registered third-party developers only for the design and development of applications for Apple's platforms.

    No need to get upset, I was at first trying to understand the point you were trying to make. I then offered my personal opinion :)

    I'm not upset. Just curious, you guys chose Myriad as your logo to match Apple's lettering? It's interesting that it's not licensed outside of app development.
