Here’s a list of activities supported by Dynamic Island in Apple iPhone 14 Pro series

The newly announced Apple iPhone 14 Pro models come with a new feature named Dynamic Island. It is an innovative way that allows users to interact with the pill-shaped cutout at the top of the screen. The pill-shaped cutout part is being referred to by the company as Dynamic Island.
