iOS 7 moves away from thinner font
As part of Apple's beta update to iOS 7, it appears that lead designer Jony Ive has had a change of heart in regards to the company's move to a thinner font.

When first unveiled, iOS 7 moved away from its traditional thick font, moving the entire OS to Helvetica Neue Light. As of beta 3, Ive has moved back to Helvetica Neue at a regular weight.

The lightweight font had been one of the bigger criticisms of the completely revamped operating system.

    I was a fan of the thinner font. Not too happy with the new thicker one.

    As an older person I HATE the thin light grey fonts all websites use thees days.

    They are so hard to read.
