Apple announced the iPhone 14 Pro recently, and that’s not even the biggest news from the tech company in the end. We don’t know how much time you’ve spent recently indulging in Apple-related speeches, but you might be shocked to learn that the nerds keep grumbling. What happened this time? Well, Jony Ive is gone (now forever), Quit take precedence as much as the Mac and things will never be the same again. To put things in a little bit more stable, it’s been 16 years since the iPhone came out and there’s still no “next big thing,” as long as you forget the Watch, the AirPods, and those completely redesigned MacBooks.
Can Apple still innovate? As it turns out, the iPhone 14 Pro is a pretty obvious answer. Having said that, the company’s most luxurious phone is not a game changer on par with the rumored car or the augmented reality headset that Tim Cook casually teases as if he is floating Don’t worry, baby conspiracy theories. Considering how bad the smartphone market has been this year, the iPhone 14 Pro is easily the most exciting new release of 2022 and it’s almost entirely a single great feature. Dynamic Island: a really cool idea with a name that only Liz Truss could love.
Dynamic reversal: bad name, genius features
Look, we remember Force Touch, the first-generation MacBook Touch Bar, and Siri. Apple has spent a lot of time over the past decade trying to combine input and notifications in ways that don’t always work. Dynamic Island doesn’t just feel essential right out of the box, it’s the kind of feature that can only be made for the iPhone. What is it? Well, the notch that houses the selfie camera and Face ID sensor of iPhones since 2017’s iPhone X has been removed and in its place is a pill-shaped cutout containing the same technology.
Honestly, the physical dimensions of Dynamic Island (or ‘DI’ as we’ll insist to call it from now on) are the least interesting things about it. You see, instead of signing a year after downsizing the notch, Apple decided to create what is essentially a black pill in the middle of a 6.1 or 6.7-inch touchscreen. , depending on whether you choose for iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max. Instead, DI extends and contracts depending on the context and application you’re using.
So the album art will pop up when you’re playing music. A waveform displays during a phone call and changes color depending on who is speaking. There’s a case-sized square to show your approved Apple Pay transactions, small AirPods icons to confirm that your wireless headphones are connected via Bluetooth, low battery alert and many other gimmicks. The best trick we’ve found so far? If you set a route to travel using Apple Maps, you’ll get turn-by-turn directions to your destination. As someone who traditionally uses Apple Maps about once a year for the sake of journalism, this is a true 21st-century redemption story, like a physical manifestation of the kombucha girl meme.
