Typekit now supports fonts on the iPhone

Udpate 23 Jun 2010: Apple improves webfont support in iOS4
In our never-ending quest to provide fonts for all platforms and devices, we’ve rolled out support for Typekit fonts on the iPhone. This means you can now use @font-face across all supporting desktop browsers, as well as the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.
To start using fonts on these devices, open up the Kit Editor and choose Experimental Features in the kit settings. We’ve launched this as an optional setting like we did for the iPad due to the somewhat buggy behavior in Mobile Safari. Also, note that the fonts only work on iPhone OS 3.1 or higher. We’ve written up our notes on what works and doesn’t in a previous post, so be sure to read up about the implications of using these features and test carefully with your website.
We’re rapidly expanding our mobile support as we learn more about what works and doesn’t in a wide variety of devices. We’ll keep updating you here and on our Twitter feed as we launch more devices. It’s still very much the Wild West out there with @font-face, but look on the bright side: Your Typekit-enabled website will always represent the best practices and latest support for fonts on the web. We’ll keep sweating the details so you don’t have to.
