Two of the most important Apple executives talk about the development of the Dynamic Island of the iPhone 14 Pro.
The Dynamic Island of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max has been a great change, both in design and added functions, one of the biggest changes we’ve seen recently on the iPhone. And in an interview, two of Apple’s top executives have revealed many curiosities about the “dynamic island”.
The japanese magazine Axis was able to interview Craig Federighisenior vice president of software engineering at Apple, and has Alan DyeApple’s vice president of human interface design.
The biggest change to the iPhone since the iPhone X
Craig Federighi described the Dynamic Island of the iPhone 14 Pro as the most important change since the arrival of the iPhone Xwhich included a total change both in design, eliminating the Home button, and at the interface level, with an iOS loaded with gestures.
It’s probably the first major change in five years since the iPhone X came out. Five years ago, we lost the home button with the iPhone X. This has fundamentally overhauled various iPhone operation methods, such as how to unlock the lock screen, go back to the home screen and how to switch applications. This new feature has also changed the look and feel of iPhone, and made us think again about how to run multiple apps, notifications, and how to manage continuous behavior in the background. It was a very exciting challenge for us to consolidate what is happening on our iPhone in this small interactive place.
A work resulting from years of discussion
For his part, Alan Dye explained where the idea for the Dynamic Island came from, a completely innovative idea that we had not seen in any other manufacturer. In addition, he praised the way of working at Apple, with the hardware and software teams working side by side.
At Apple, it’s very difficult to trace the source of ideas. Because our work is based on a great discussion with different groups of people. However, one of those discussions was that if the sensor area on the screen could be made smaller, what could be done with the excess space? It is not an argument that has come out in the last year or so, but it is one of the topics that has been discussed for many years.
Dye added that the company had already been thinking about how to get more creative with the iPhone status bar.
If you think about it, this status bar is small, but it plays a role in providing important information that users always use. It’s an area where our hard work on a few pixels has a very big effect. So there was a story about doing something more special in this area anyway. Something that is very elegant, but very useful.
The Dynamic Island has been a very important change in iOS and in the iPhone, a change that they have already rushed to take over in other systems. Even brands like Samsung or Xiaomi could be preparing something similar for their devices.
