Back in June, at the Worldwide Developers Conference event of 2019, Apple introduced its latest version of the iOS operating system, iOS 13. The new OS is faster and more efficient than its previous generation, iOS 12. However, if you are an Apple user, you have to update your device to iOS 13 before you can use it.
Here, in this article, we will guide you on how to your Apple device to their latest OS, iOS 13. iOS 13 comes with the option of cool customized fonts so we will also tell you how to install them in the second half of the article.
Before we start the guidance, you should know that if you are an iPad user then iOS 13 is not for you. This is the first time in the history of Apple, that the company is pushing the iPad to go own their own. iPads will no more be tied with the iOS, instead, iPads will get their very own OS, iPadOS. Now, let us get back to our main theme of the article, on how to install iOS 13 in your apple device?
Step 1: Compatibility Check
So far, Apple has always allowed new software updates to its older devices but this time, some iPhones that run on iOS 12 won’t get the iOS 13 update. So initially, you have to check whether your device is really compatible with iOS 13 or not.
As of now, according to Apple, iPhone SE, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max will only get iOS 13 updates. The newly launched iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max, iPhone 11 Max Pro already comes with pre-loaded iOS 13.
If your device is one of the above then you can move into the next step of the update installation process.
Step 2: Backing Up Your iPhone
Backing up is the most important part of the whole process. We recommend you to back up your device before installing the update. It ensures that there will be no data loss. You will be able to restore each and everything if something goes wrong.
Users will be able to update their Apple devices into the latest operating system provided by the company through iCloud so or by connecting your device to a Mac or PC via iTunes. We will explain all the techniques so that even if one technique fails, you can still try out other things to make it happen.
Backing up through iCloud
Perhaps, iCloud is the easiest way to back up your device. All you have to do is connect your device to a Wi-Fi network and open your “Settings” app. After this, you have to select your name and tap on iCloud.
However, if your device is running on iOS 10.2 or an earlier version then you will have to scroll down and tap on iCloud. After tapping on iCloud, go to iCloud Backup and backup your device by clicking on “Back Up Now”. For iOS 12 or earlier versions will display “Backup” instead of “Back Up Now”. Your device will start to backup.
Backing up on a Mac device that runs in macOS Catalina
First of all, you have to be sure that your Mac device is up do date. Then, all you have to do is connect your iPhone with your Mac device. You have to pass the security norms by providing the passcode or allowing “Trust This Computer”. After this, open the Finder application and select your iPhone from the sidebar and follow it up by hitting “General” tab and “Back Up Now” respectively.
Backing up on a Mac or Windows PC with iTunes
If you own a Windows PC or an older Mac then can still use iTunes to back up your iPhone. First, make sure that your iTunes app is up to date and connect your Apple device with the Mac or Windows PC. You have to pass the security norms by providing the passcode or allowing “Trust This Computer”. After this, select your Apple device in iTunes and follow it up by hitting “Back Up Now.”
Step 3: Downloading and Installing iOS 13 on your iPhone
Once you are done with the backup part, go to the “Settings” tab from your Apple device and then go to the “General” tab. Under this tab, you will find the option “Software Update”.
As soon as you click on it, your Apple device will start checking for its updates. Often, there is a problem with mobile networks, and it will show you a network error so we would suggest you to do all this through your Wi-Fi. A notification will appear telling you about the latest iOS version and there will be a pop up asking you to “Download and Install” it.
Simply follow the instructions and iOS 13 will be downloaded and installed. If you are already in the latest version, then you will get a notification “Software Up to Date”. The download and installation part will take some time so don’t reboot or turn off your device while on the process and its better if you don’t use the device then.

Step 4: Install Custom Fonts on iPhone (iOS 13)
As we told you earlier, up next, we will guide you, how to install custom fonts in iOS. Installing fonts in iOS 13 is a bit of a kludge but in the end, it can be done! There are two popular ways to install custom fonts on iOS. Either you can install custom fonts “system-wide” so that it can be used by any app on your device, else, you can install the font only in the app you will use it.
Here, we will guide you on how to install custom fonts for system-wide, how to install custom fonts in Ulysses, how to install custom fonts for iFont. Along with these, we will also teach you how to uninstall custom fonts from your Apple device.
Sometimes you just don’t like a particular font but since you have installed it, it gets used everywhere which is very disturbing. Knowing how to uninstall a particular font will come handy. Now, let us get back to our main focus.
How to install a custom font in Ulysses in iOS 13
Ulysses is perhaps the best text editor on Mac and iOS for loading custom fonts.
First of all, you have to download the font to your device either by downloading it from Safari and saving it on the Files application or by dropping the font in the Dropbox or on an iCloud Drive folder on your Mac.
Secondly, you have to open the font in Ulysses It should be noted that any font you add up in Ulysses will automatically get stored in the Custom Fonts section of the regular font picker.
You can also try to install ‘Fronteer” app from AppStore. It works similar, all you have to do it download the fonts in .ttf format and move it to your ‘Files’ App. You can open the .ttf font using the Fronteer app.
How to install a custom font system-wide in iOS 13
First of all, to make your font available system-wide, you have to create a Configuration Profile.
To do this, all you have to do is get a font management app from the App Store that is potential enough to do the work on behalf of you. You can go for iFont. iFont is free to download fonts but it comes with annoying advertisements and it costs $0.99 if you want to get rid of them.
Here, with iFont, we are providing an example of how to do it with a font management app. This app comes with a handful of font-related features including excellent capabilities like the ability to import a font family at once inside a zip archive.
In order to install a font with iFont, you have to open the app and go to the Files browser. After this, you have to tap on the “Install” button next to the font and follow instructions provided.
Frankly, a number of instructions are to be followed but all of them are automated so all you have to do is just give permission agreeing with them. Once the font you want to install is installed, you will be able to switch to any other app and load it up just like Ulysses.
How to uninstall a custom font from your iPhone
Let us assume that you have installed font with iFont and now, you want to remove it. All you have to do is you just have to delete the font’s configuration profile. This can be done through the Settings option.
Go to General tab and then go to the Profiles tab and select the font you want to uninstall and tap on “Remove Profile”. After this, you have to follow some prompts and you are done.
It is always better to stay updated in terms of the operating system. Android users don’t face much problem installing the latest version of their OS but the same thing is very hectic for iOS. It is advisable to all Apple device owners to stay up to date, that is why we have listed the above methods briefly.
We are once again reminding the users to back up their device before trying OS upgradation otherwise all data stored so far will be lost within a few seconds.
We have also discussed briefly how to install a font both for particular app usage and for system-wide usage so we also recommend the Apple users to try out the iOS 13 custom fonts whenever necessary. And in case, users have downloaded some unnecessary font that they want to remove, uninstallation is recommended.
