It further stated that iPhone's Dynamic Island is not customizable, but dynamicSpot is as the users will be able to change interaction settings, select when to show or hide the popup or which apps should appear.

Dynamic Island on iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max

The Dynamic Island on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shows important alerts, notifications, and activities in real time. With the introduction of the Dynamic Island, the TrueDepth camera has been redesigned to take up less of the display area. "Without impeding content on the screen, the Dynamic Island maintains an active state to allow users easier access to controls with a simple tap-and-hold. Ongoing background activities like Maps, Music, or a timer remain visible and interactive, and third-party apps in iOS 16 that provide information like sports scores and ride-sharing with Live Activities can take advantage of the Dynamic Island," Apple said.

"On iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, you can check alerts and current activity in progress—such as music that’s playing, your timer, an AirDrop connection, and directions from Maps—in the Dynamic Island on the Home Screen or in any app. The Dynamic Island appears whenever your iPhone is unlocked. Touch and hold the Dynamic Island to expand it and see more details about the activity," it added.
