Font: Helvetica Neue Ultra Light (iOS 7)

Like the new typeface the iOS 7 uses?

Here’s some history behind it:

(Source: wikipedia)

“Helvetica is a widely used sans-serif typeface developed in 1957 by Swisstypeface designerMax Miedinger with Eduard Hoffmann.”

Neue Helvetica is a reworking of the typeface with a more structurally unified set of heights and widths. It was developed at D. Stempel AG, a Linotype subsidiary. The studio manager was Wolfgang Schimpf, and his assistant was Reinhard Haus; the manager of the project was René Kerfante. Erik Spiekermann was the design consultant and designed the literature for the launch in 1983.[12] Other changes include improved legibility, heavier punctuation marks, and increased spacing in the numbers.”
