The font is called "Apple Myriad". It is a proprietary font held by Apple. It is not for use by anyone outside of the company, so nobody will have it.

The font that I have found closest to it is "Myriad Pro", though there are still some minor differences with the x-height and kerning.

Actually, if you google for Apple Myriad the first result has a link to download the font
