Apple brings Dynamic Island to all four iPhone 15 models
Apple has brought the Dynamic Island to all four iPhone 15 models, expanding the feature that was previously exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max to the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Apple first introduced the Dynamic Island with the iPhone 14 Pro series, which replaced the notch found on previous iPhone models. The island, located around the pill-shaped cut-out at the top of the iPhone’s display, blends and adapts in real-time to show alerts, notifications, and activities, turning the cut-out into part of the core iPhone experience.
The Dynamic Island always remains at the top of the iPhone’s display. Ongoing background activities like Maps, Music, or a timer remain visible and interactive, and third-party apps that provide information like sports scores and ride-sharing can use the Dynamic Island to show information to a user through the pill-shaped cut-out.
Dynamic Island support is built into core iOS features. For example, when connecting AirPods, the Dynamic Island will morph from its fixed state and show that the earbuds have been connected, when on a FaceTime Audio call, the Dynamic Island will change its appearance to represent a call UI, and when setting a timer, the Dynamic Island will again change its appearance to show different information on-screen.
