To Years From notches squeezing the life out of the iPhone’s status bar, Apple has finally refreshed its design with the latest iPhone 14 series. More specifically, the iPhone 14 Pro and its new Dynamic Island, a bar on the display that houses Apple’s TrueDepth camera and FaceID technology.
It’s a pretty exciting feature that some Android OEMs are already considering. Some Android fans are even hoping to see a similar feature on their phones. However, we want to know what you think of Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro.
Dynamic Island is named for the way apps can interact with the bar and appears to extend out from the bar to present various information when you’re not directly interacting with the apps. For example, you can see the status of certain accessories connected to the phone, view apps that are currently playing audio, and expand the island for playback controls, or even get directions from Maps.
Our Nick Sutrich writes that he wishes this was something Android OEMs had done, calling it clever and saying that “the fact that Apple took yet another big cutout in their display and turned it into a fun, useful feature.” has transformed is a sheer brilliance that I would have expected from Google.”
Well, his wish may come true as a theme developer for Xiaomi’s MIUI has already started working on an implementation.
Other developers have already started bringing their own versions of Dynamic Island to Android. Most notably, developer Jawomo has created a version that works with the hold-punch camera cutout that many Android phones have. However, it’s more of an extension of Android notifications and doesn’t have the same level of integration as Apple’s. Also, there are some other limitations such as B. Some features hidden behind a paywall.
So for once, Apple seems to have a feature that Android might want to copy, even if it’s just an evolution of features Android already had with phones like the LG V10. What do you think? Should Android do more with the camera cutout found on most Android phones?
