When the iPhone 14 models were unveiled in 2022, Apple managed to attract attention by integrating innovative software features with the striking pill-shaped cutout at the top of the screen. This specific area of the display is known by Apple as the " Dynamic Island, " and this functionality has since been integrated into all iPhone 15 models . This article takes an in-depth look at the features of Dynamic Island and provides valuable insights on how to make the most of this feature for various tasks.
What is Dynamic Island on iPhone?
The Dynamic Island on the iPhone is a new design (since the iPhone 14 Pro) that makes interaction between hardware and software easier. The Dynamic Island adapts in real time to display important alerts, notifications and activities. With the introduction of the Dynamic Island, the TrueDepth camera has been redesigned to take up less space on the display. Without obstructing the content on the screen, the Dynamic Island maintains an active state so users can more easily access the controls by simply touching and holding them. Ongoing background activities such as Maps, Music or a timer remain visible and interactive, and third-party apps in iOS 16 that provide information such as sports scores and ride sharing with Live Activities can use the Dynamic Island.
