You go here: https://developer.apple.com/fonts/ (yes I know this is the official link - thing is: SF is a open type font, its just "hidden" deep in the downloaded package) Then you download the font. Then open the downloaded zip with 7zip. do all the following steps with 7zip: open the folder SFPro open the San Francisco Pro.pkg open the file Payload~ ...

*Disclaimer: I've been a Mac user for more than 20 years and still use a Mac daily. That being posted, I have clearly seen Windows close the gap in the areas where Apple was the frontrunner and the preferred system for designers. 15 years ago, using Windows was, at best, a lesson in frustration where design was concerned. There was a time where the Mac was ...

Unfortunately Apple aren't too concerned with Windows users. They expect everyone who is designing for Mac to use a Mac. And since the San Francisco font has been created with specific features only available for Mac it is only available on Mac and unlikely to be available on Windows any time soon (unless someone decides to hack it, which is a possibility). ...

Step 1: Download the font package from Apple. https://developer.apple.com/fonts/ Make sure to download the regular fonts and not the compact fonts for watchOS. The download will have an annoying .pkg file that Windows users will be unable to open immediately. That’s okay. Step 2: Download and install 7zip http://www.7-zip.org/download.html This will ...

I'm resurrecting this from the death, because I think I have the answer. I ended up downloading the font here, and proceeded to convert all the fonts to TTF format using this converter. This has worked great for me.

This will vary from product to product. I would encourage you to seek out the terms and conditions on a case by case basis. This might involve e-mailing the company, but sometimes the information is already made publicly available. For example, here's Apple's marketing guidelines for iPads, iPhones, and iPods: 2.2 Image use The Apple product images ...

I believe you can only use the official badge. See the App Store Marketing Guidelines: Use only the App Store badge artwork provided by Apple. Do not modify, angle, animate, rotate, or tilt the App Store badge. Do not use the Apple logo alone. Do not use icons, logos, or graphics from www.apple.com to promote your app. Do not refer to iOS in your ...

I believe that they use Kozuka Gothic Pro (小塚ゴシック) for those texts. It's a Japanese font that ships with Adobe Creative Suite/Cloud. You can find the font with the standard name 小塚ゴシック or enable english font names by: in the preferences > type pane tick the box next to "show font names in english" The font has 6 weights from EL (Extra Light) to H (Heavy) ...

According to the Apple Watch HIGs, it's a new font called San Francisco, and it comes in two flavors: Choose the San Francisco Text font for text that is 19 points or smaller. Choose the San Francisco Display font for text that is 20 points or larger. Jon Gruber notes that it's not the first San Francisco font to appear on an Apple device, though this ...

The only way to download Apple's San Francisco font is from the Apple developer website: https://developer.apple.com/fonts/ The font isn't licensed for any general use at all. Only paid members of Apple's developer program are allowed to download it and are only allowed to use it for screen mockups, nothing more. If you aren't an Apple developer you're out ...

The Human Interface Guidelines are the official guidelines and the closest official source you'll get. There is no detailed spec similar to Material Design's. Although similar in purpose, the Human Interface Guidelines and Material Design Guidelines are different for a reason. Material Design is a conscious attempt to create a single design system for a ...

I do primarily web design and web development so I will only add what I see. Only up to a couple of months was I an avid PC user and now I'm sold on Mac. In reality, hardware is basically the same and the only real difference you will see is that Mac OS is smoother than Windows from my experience in regards to maintenance, installation, and debugging. ...

Whatever it is, it’s grotesque. Seriously though, DIN does look close but for its square tittles and punctuation marks and not getting the 9’s right. I fancy Aktiv Grotesk for a closer match on the numbers, but it’s just not ‘square’ enough and again lacks round tittles, etc. UPDATE: Apple did indeed create their own typeface for the font: http://www....

Apple uses a custom variation of Myriad called "Myriad Set." Sources: Wikipedia: Typography of Apple, Inc., Quora: What font is used in Steve Jobs' presentations?


3

It's called Myriad Set, used in varying weights (in this case either Thin or Ultralight). It's a custom variation of Myriad Pro, only available to Apple and its marketing/advertising partners.


3

Myriad was released in 1992, before the general appearance of extra-light weights, so I'm with Scott on this, it's [EDIT based on Hynes' answer] a custom variation of it. There is a close-ish match available for purchase that is just for web at WebINK. It says it's Myriad Pro Light, but if you look at the 24px size one in Chrome (Win 8) it's actually ...

While Autodesk Sketchbook (which Michael suggests) does appear in the promo video in your link, the app in the photo is Clibe (see for instance: http://www.knowyourapps.com/reviews/clibe/ ). I clipped out the UI from one of the Clibe screenshots for comparison. I have not used the app myself.

To add onto Yisela: Affiliate Logo Guidelines and Art The iTunes and App Store logos are recognized worldwide and using them correctly is an important part of being an affiliate partner.

There are multiple apps used in the video on that page, but at the 1:48 mark the app is Autodesk Sketchbook Pro for iPad.

That would be Helvetica Neue: Direct Comparison (see comment...thanks JohnB!):

Any freelance website, you can try (I feel like a Yoda suddenly!) Most of them cost nothing for posting a job and you can see what kind of freelancers and costs you'll get. I don't think there's a market yet specifically for Apple Watch on freelance and a mockup can be done by designers who don't code (although, it's better to find one who knows what he/...

For designers, even I as a lifelong Mac bigot can say "not much anymore." The critical programs are on both platforms now. And Scott makes good points about Parallels and cross-platform browser testing. The main benefit from my perspective is that the Mac OS and hardware are more stable and more uniform. There is only one Mac hardware vendor, and it's Apple....

Here's a link to their legal policies; http://www.apple.com/legal/intellectual-property/guidelinesfor3rdparties.html Looks like the 2. Compatibility section could apply to your question.

Google fonts has a nice, free alternative that's close called Roboto:

You can download San Francisco directly from Apple in OTF format. Windows doesn't like that format, but you can use this tool to convert it to TTF. It worked for me using Windows 10. I discovered the tool from this post by Stefan.

To give you the answer you're looking for, most people would probably still be using Adobe Illustrator to design logos. There are some free alternatives to that and of course, Zach's answer should also be considered here as the software will not design logos by itself. Many times a client will not know what kind of logo to ask for, so you need to be able to ...

Go to https://developer.apple.com/fonts/ to download San Francisco Font styles as a zip file. extract the font files from the SF-Font.dmg then open the SF Pro file folder. All the fonts will be listing there. Then open the FontBook app on you MacOS. Go back to the SF Pro folder and double-click the file the font you are missing. A prompt will then appear ...

Sounds like you already figured this out, but this is one of the top google results so I figured I'd post more links. Apple used to provide the SF font to anyone as normal font download, but now they only allow it as a .pkg installer supposedly just for developers. Even as a developer, I had this issue: "The San Francisco Pro Fonts installer does not allow ...
