Font device policy

You can add a device policy in XenMobile to add additional fonts to iOS and macOS devices. Fonts must be TrueType (.ttf) or OpenType (.oft) fonts. Font collections (.ttc or .otc) are not supported.

For iOS, this policy applies only to iOS 7.0 and later.

To add or configure this policy, go to Configure > Device Policies. For more information, see Device policies.
