For the first time in twenty years, Apple created its own custom font in late 2014. Called “San Francisco”, it combined elements of Helvetica and FF DIN to create a bright, elegant, and legible font that is now used in iOS, macOS and tvOS.
With an open source Magisk module from developer Nong Thai Hoang, you can now use Apple’s San Francisco as your system-wide font on Android. This works independently of any built-in font management system on your phone, so you don’t have to worry about setting anything up, just flash the module and you’re done!
What you need
: Download the San Francisco Font Module
To get started, visit the project’s official Github page at the link below. Once there, tap “Assets” to expand more options. Select below these SFP_4.6.zip to download the module.
Step 2: Flash the module in Magisk Manager
Now open your Magisk Manager app and tap the puzzle piece icon on the floating menu bar at the bottom of the screen. Once on the Modules screen, tap “Install from storage” at the top, then use the file picker app to browse to your download folder and select the SFP_4.6.zip file. Once Magisk has finished flashing the file, go ahead and click “Restart” in the bottom right corner.
Step 3: Have fun with your new font!
When you get up again, your system font will now be Apple’s San Francisco! Since this is a system-wide font, it applies to everything from the Quick Settings to text on websites and in your apps (provided the website or app doesn’t use its own custom fonts). Compared to the Google Sans font on Pixel phones (below), it’s a subtle change, but still quite advanced.
