iOS 16.2 beta just brought this handy Dynamic Island update to iPhone 14 Pro

One of the biggest updates Apple brought to the iPhone 14 Pro Y iPhone 14 ProMax was the new dynamic island. The tech giant got rid of the notch for its professionals this year and brought a kind of fluid notch that can transform into notifications or live activities.

Now, iOS 16.2 beta has brought a huge update to Dynamic Island which has seen minor software tweaks since its release.

Currently, when playing music, Dynamic Island displays the battery icon along with Wi-Fi or signal bars. With this new update, the island will be reduced in width and all three icons will now be visible when music is playing. It will also have a fancy animation that snaps it into place.

Based on live activity, Apple shows only a few icons at the top of the iPhone 14 Pro. If it’s an activity with more content, then there are only a few icons that are currently visible. This was a bit of a concern at times because the signal bars would disappear when launching an app or playing music, leading users to think they had lost signal. This update will fix that and is much more helpful in showing Dynamic Island’s purpose of handling live activities alongside relevant phone information in parallel.
