Dynamic Island

With the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, Apple switched to Dynamic Island technology instead of the notch. Alan Dye, Apple’s VP of UI Design, made a statement about the Dynamic Island user interface.

The notched screen design first appeared on the iPhone X model in 2017. The notch, which has been criticized by users for a long time, finally left its place to a different design.

Alan Dye: “Dynamic Island is the result of years of debate.”
Many sensors, especially the front camera and Face ID sensor, are gathered in a small area on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. With the newly introduced technology, Apple announced that the Dynamic Island feature will work in harmony with applications.

Dye stated that the company has been working on reducing the size of the notch for years and is investigating how to best leverage this change. Underlining that they want to meet the users with an elegant design, Dye said that the new interface makes the users happy.

Software engineer Craig Federighi said, “Apple has spent a long time researching how to get a better UI without the physical Home button. Dynamic Island technology is the biggest change to the iOS operating system since the iPhone X model.” made statements.

This new feature also changed the look of the iPhone. With it, the control of apps running in the background has become even easier.
