With the launch of the new iPhone 14 pro models, Apple brings a new pill-shaped cutout and calls it Dynamic Island. The tech giant talked a lot about the new cutout at its “Far Out” event on September 7. This is probably the coolest way to hide the ‘i-shaped’ camera and face ID cutout.
Apart from masking the cutout, the ‘Dynamic Island’ takes it a step further and offers more, real functionality. Human Interface designer at Apple Chan Karunamuni, who works on Dynamic Island, took to Twitter to express his thoughts and excitement at the critical acclaim his creation is getting.
“Dynamic Island was certainly not a solo effort. The industrial design, hardware and software teams all worked together to design and build it. We worked together intensively for years to make it possible, the only way to make an idea like this possible .” he said.
The new project I’ve designed arrives at Dynamic Island today.
The goal is to feel like a living, elastic bubble that can smoothly change into different alerts and experiences.
The feature can display system alerts for things like incoming phone calls and the Face ID authentication prompt, and it will also work with Live Activities in third-party apps when iOS 16.1 is released later this year, MacRumors reports.
Since the feature was just released, software integration is limited to a handful of apps as of now.
