Have you ever wondered what makes your iPhone interaction so unique and soothing to your eyes? Normally, colours and graphics capture our attention and we miss the most important part: fonts.
On your Windows PC or Mac, you can easily select your choice of fonts to make a document, website or presentation. But you have never thought of installing custom fonts on your iPhone and iPad. Because you never felt the need to do this. Or the device itself never has been so user-friendly that you can change fonts easily.
Perhaps a developer must have wondered how he can change the fonts in an iPhone or iPad. And he has come up with a solution. AnyFont is an app that allows you to add new fonts to your iOS devices.
You can add fonts in TrueTypeFont- (.ttf), OpenTypeFont- (.otf) or TrueType Collection- (.ttc) format on your iPhone and iPad. Thankfully, this app doesn’t require a Jailbroken iOS device. You can use your normal device and add custom fonts.

Step #1: First off download and install AnyFont iOS app on your iPhone.
Step #2: Once the app is settled on your phone screen, launch it and tap on the font file.
Step #3: Now tap on Aa icon.

How to Import Fonts into AnyFont on iPhone/iPad
