These are all the apps and system functions that are compatible with the new Dynamic Island.

The notch on the display of the iPhone has been a constant point of contention within the Apple fanbase for years. Finally, iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max have seen a new development with the notch, as its size has been reduced and it now comes in the form of a pill-shaped cutout. Not only that, Apple has introduced a new feature called ‘Dynamic Island’ that augments the notch into its native software and gives it a few handy features. With the ‘Dynamic Island’ users can now quickly access background apps and functions without having to open them individually. In this article, we list all the dynamic island supported apps and functions for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. Since more and more apps are becoming compatible with the new cutout every day, we will be updating this list weekly.

System notifications

Face ID

The Face ID notification now shows up in Dynamic Island every time you unlock or fail to unlock your phone with your face.

Bluetooth Accessories

Additional accessories and devices connected to your iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max will now show up on Dynamic Island. These include AirPods, Stereo Headsets, Bluetooth Speakers etc. You can also check the battery status of the connected devices on the Island itself. 

Charging

The charging status can now be quickly viewed from the cutout at the top of your iPhone’s screen.

Incoming/Ongoing call

Any calls you receive while using your phone will now show up in Dynamic Island. You can quickly accept or reject the call from the Island itself. Once connected, the ongoing call status will be reflected on the cutout as well.

AirDrop

Any files sent or received through AirDrop can now be seen up top. A simple tap will expand the details and show you the transfer status.

Silent Profile

Changing your phone’s ringer status will be reflected on the notch on the screen. This makes sense as it does not deserve an entire notification.

AirPlay

Mirroring status can now be accessed from the Dynamic Island. Simply long press the alert and see which device is mirroring your iPhone.

Personal Hotspot

The Dynamic Island lets you know when the personal hotspot of your device is turned on. Tapping on it, will take you to Settings where you can turn off the personal hotspot. 

Timer

One of the handiest uses of the Dynamic Island – if you start a timer on your iPhone and minimise the app, the timer will occupy a small spot on the Island, letting you keep a track of time.

Maps

Navigation via Apple Maps has been made even more convenient. Now the pill cutout on your iPhone can give you directions and tell you the distance between every turn. While Google Maps has an icon of its own for Dynamic Island, it cannot display the directions on the cutout yet.

Voice Recording

The waveform will show up on the cutout, letting you know that the voice recorder is currently active. It will also show how long the recording has been going on.

Screen Recording

A red dot on the Dynamic Island indicates that your iPhone’s screen is currently being recorded. Long press the notification to stop the recording and carry out other functions. 

Camera and Mic Indicators

The camera and mic activity indicators that used to show up at the top right corner of the screen have now been moved to the Dynamic Island.

Music and Audio Apps

One of the most creative uses of the Dynamic Island is to show the ‘Now Playing’ bar from major music and audio apps. Once you play a song, the album art and a small waveform show up on the pill-shaped cutout on the screen. You can long press this notification to access other functions related to the app. As of now, these music and audio apps come with Dynamic Island functionality.

Messenger and Social Media apps

New messages from IM apps and social media platforms like WhatsApp and Instagram can be accessed from the island itself. What’s ironic is that Apple’s very own iMessage is not compatible with Dynamic Island yet. Here are the IM and social media apps that are supported by the Dynamic Island on the new iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

Apollo for Reddit

Download from here.

Apollo is one of the most popular iOS clients for Reddit. When the app is active, a pixel animal shows up on the Dynamic Island. While it doesn’t serve any function, it is certainly a fun way to use that space and perhaps a sign of how other apps will use the Dynamic Island in the future. 

Games

We aren’t entirely sure how lite gaming apps will make use of Dynamic Island, but it won’t stop creative app designers from trying. In fact, there is already one game out already that uses the dynamic island in a fun way.

Hit The Island

Download from here.

The name says it all. Use the paddle to hit the dynamic island with a ball. The more points you score, the smaller the paddle gets. After a certain number of points, the speed of the ball increases as well.
