Anyone using alternative fonts on the iphone in iOS 13? I loaded a few fonts from ifont, but I cannot figure out how to access them in all of my apps.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

You can check whether the fonts are installed in Settings>General>Fonts

It's to allow using custom fonts in apps that allow the user to choose fonts. Previously you could only use the fonts that were pre-installed on iOS. For example, in Pages, you can choose your custom fonts now. So I presume, rather than for changing the UI, it's more for when the user is creating documents/slideshows/illustrations etc. I've tried and it currently does work in Pages.

I suppose some apps may now offer the user a way to change the font used in the UI of the app, but I doubt many would do this, if it was possible.

Thank you. I have loaded a few fonts, but I was hoping to use them in stock apps such as messages, etc.
