Font or Typeface?

“What do these terms mean anyway? The most simple explanation is: a typeface is what you see, a font is what you use. Both refer to a “set of letters (or symbols to put it more broadly) with a specific style”, but the term typeface puts the focus on the artistic work, whereas font points to the actual tool to arrrange and print or display text using a design with a specific style.”

Why it took so much time to get here? Nobody knows exactly. It’s one of those things Apple.

I suspect it had to do with the typeface. Now that they have developed San Francisco they are more comfortable having the keyboard in lowercase… it sure looks nicer than Helvetica Neue.
