The copyright also includes a second classification under printers’ type. This may narrate to a new font that was included with the new iOS update to version 4.3, which is called Noteworthy. Whether there is a connection among this new font and an undisclosed app is uncertain.
In fact, some of Apple’s other trademarked fonts have also been assigned the international code 009. This includes Charcoal, the defaulting menu font in OS 8 and 9, and Monaco, which shipped with all versions of Mac OS X
