How to Install Multiple Fonts on an iPad

It’s easy to install fonts on a desktop. But how do you get your iPad fonts in order? Let’s guide you through the process and show you a few ways to install multiple fonts at once on Apple’s tablet.

Open your iPad Settings.

Tap the General menu.

There’s a tab called Fonts inside. Tapping it will most likely show you the screen from below, notifying you that there are no fonts installed right now. It’s going to prompt you to open the App Store to find an app that helps you install fonts.

There are tons of apps on the App Store, but for this tutorial, we’ll use the one called iFont. It’s free, though you have to pay if you want to remove the ads.

This is how the app looks like in the store:

You’ll get a short tutorial inside with a few of the app’s main features. Tap on the Start button and you will jump to the main interface of the app.

Using the Open Files menu you can browse and find the zipped .TTF and .OTF files on your iPad or cloud locations like OneDrive, Dropbox, iCloud, etc.

In case you don’t have any of these cloud services connected for file sharing, you can just send the .TTF and .OTF font files to your iPad using email to download the files straight to your tablet.

After you’ve located the zipped font files, click on the Import to iFont button to create a new configuration profile.

To install them all at once just click the Select button and then the purple Install button.

This will prompt you to “Allow” the creation of the configuration profile on your iPad.
