OS X Yosemite is a pretty big visual departure from OS X Mavericks, including all new system wide fonts. Might not sound too exciting at first, but Apple has had basically the same font in OS X pretty much forever and changing it up has a much bigger visual effect than we might give it credit for – just look upon iOS 7 as an example. Now that Yosemite is out in the wild, Apple is giving us a much closer look at its new font, and it looks pretty hot.
For some, the choice of a font may not be a big deal. But to us, it's an integral part of the interface. In OS X Yosemite, fonts have been refined systemwide to be more legible and consistent across the Mac experience. You'll notice a fresh, new typeface in app windows, menu bars, and throughout the system. And it looks absolutely incredible on the Retina display.
It is pretty comparable to the change experienced from iOS 6 to iOS 7. The new font looks a little slimmer, sleeker than before and it looks like it goes beautifully with the added dose of translucency in Yosemite.
So what do you think to it? A welcome change or does it not do it for you? Sound off in the comments below!
