Island upgrades the Dynamic Island experience and ports it to jailbroken iOS & iPadOS 14-16 devices

The Dynamic Island is one of the most distinguishable differences between the iPhone 14 Pro lineup and all prior handset models. This handy feature utilizes the area surrounding the TrueDepth camera system to display useful information about what’s happening on your device, such as Now Playing media, Personal Hotspot connectivity, and active Screen Recordings, among other things.

While a MacDirtyCow add-on can bring the Dynamic Island experience to non-jailbroken iOS 16 devices even if they’re only notched devices, jailbreakers who are using iOS or iPadOS 14, 15 or 16 may instead want to try a new jailbreak tweak called Island by iOS developer SouthernGirlWhoCode.

With Island, users aren’t limited to just two widgets at a time like they are with the native Dynamic Island, and what’s more is Island isn’t limited to iOS 16 devices and can even be used with iPads. While Island isn’t a direct port of the Dynamic Island to older devices, it behaves very similarly except that it offers more functionality at any given time.

Different widgets supported by Island.

According to the developer in the package’s depiction page, Island supports interactive widgets for each of the following items:

  • Clipboard
  • Pastebin
  • Gaming
  • TV Shows
  • Movies
  • SF Symbols
  • Reddit
  • Currencies

  • Alarm Clock
  • Call History (iPhone only)
  • Power (iPhone only)
  • Weather (iPhone only)
  • Dialer (iPhone only)

Each of the aforementioned widget supports can be customized and their order arranged to your liking. If you don’t want to use any of them, they’re easy enough to disable so they don’t clutter up your user experience.

It’s worth noting that Island does support the XinaA15 jailbreak for A12-A15 devices running iOS 15.0-15.1.1, but it also supports other jailbreaks supporting iOS & iPadOS 14, 15, and 16.

If you’re interested in giving Island a try, then you can purchase it for around $4.28 from the package’s Gunroad page. It’s unknown if the developer plans to upload their package to an ordinary jailbreak repository at this time.
