Games From Dynamic Island Are Coming to the iPhone 14 Pro
The front-facing TrueDepth camera hardware is cleverly hidden by a new Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro, and third-party software developers are already experimenting with ways to make use of the new iPhone features.
Apple is allowing other developers to produce Dynamic Island content, which may eventually include video games. Kriss Smolka, the developer behind apps like WaterMinder and HabitMinder, today shared a simple Dynamic Island game concept modeled after Pong.

The “Hit the Island” game in the demo involves sending a ball up to the Dynamic Island using a paddle at the bottom. The object is to hit the Island in order to make it animate.
The game is “coming out good,” according to Smolka, but there are some lag concerns to fix. Although it is unclear whether Apple would permit a game like this one employing the Dynamic Island, there are surely other unusual implementations that we can anticipate seeing after this Friday’s launch of the iPhone 14 Pro versions.
Apple created the Dynamic Island, which serves as a prominent information hub, to morph and alter shape to accommodate what is on the iPhone’s screen. The Dynamic Island integrates into the interface and offers quick access to details about the iPhone’s installed apps and services.
Make sure to check back with MacRumors later this week for a detailed analysis of the Dynamic Island.
