If you’re interested in a new way to control your music playback starting with iOS 17, then a new app called ControlBar by iOS developer @Taher_Dev might be of interest to you.
Starting with the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, Apple ditched the notch and adopted a new pill-style cut-out for the TrueDepth camera system on the front of the device. It stands out from similar designs in the Android space thanks to fun and quirky animated widgets that adapt to whatever you’re doing.
If you’re still clinging onto an older iPhone and you’re starting to feel nervous that your handset doesn’t look as good as all those shiny new iPhone 14 devices in circulation these days, then a new add-on called Canvas by iOS developer ChromiumCandy may be able to help.
Google Maps is testing a new navigation experience with turn-by-turn directions via Live Activities on the iPhone's Lock Screen and in the Dynamic Island.
The iPhone 15 Pros could get a stronger, lighter titanium frame and visibly thinner screen bezels on the sides for an even more seamless display design.
This year's upcoming iPhone refresh will bring the Dynamic Island to all four models, including the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.
Aside from manufacturing and cost-cutting purposes, fitting a proximity sensor within the Dynamic Island area on the iPhone 15 series could have other benefits.
Live Activities are a feature introduced by Apple in iOS 16 to make your iPhone display useful information via the Lock Screen. Live Activities are interactive notifications that may show information such as your Uber progress, sports scores, or a wide array of other information types.
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.
Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max are the company’s only handsets that natively support the Dynamic Island feature, and while a jailbreak tweak dubbed Dynamic Peninsula could bring a similar experience to notched devices, not everyone currently has access to a jailbreak — especially if they’re using iOS 16.
Enable more frequent live activity updates to receive even more timely updates from your favorite apps on the lock screen and Dynamic Island of your iPhone.
One of the biggest changes for the iPhone 14 Pro lineup in 2022 was the introduction of the Dynamic Island — the hole punch-like space at the top of the display that encapsulates the TrueDepth camera system and slick new software animations for various iOS activities.
When you get a phone call or FaceTime call while your iPhone is unlocked, the call notification appears as a small banner at the top of the screen.
But what if you don't like this compact call UI and want to get incoming calls as a full screen alert, with the large green Accept button and the red Decline button? It's very easy to change that, and we'll show you how.
