Apple execs Craig Federighi and Alan Dye discuss Dynamic Island in new interview


Apple’s design changes always get a ton of attention, and the case is no different with the new Dynamic Island. Introduced with the iPhone 14 Pro series recently, Dynamic Island is a replacement for the notch. The new pill-shape cut-out comes with a whole interface built around it.

Craig Federighi discussed how Dynamic Island is the biggest usability change to the iPhone since the iPhone X came out. He said, “This is probably the first major operation change in five years since the iPhone X came out. Various operations on the iPhone have been completely redesigned, such as how to switch between apps, etc. This new feature is also a change that greatly changes the appearance of the iPhone. It was an exciting challenge for us to have everything happening on our iPhone right now in one small, interactive place.”
