The main focus was shifted from lock screen customization to Dynamic Island and Always on display. Unfortunately, the Dynamic Island feature will not be included in the older iPhone series model.it sure does come with ios 16 but not with every iPhone model.

What is Dynamic Island?                 

The dynamic island is a new iOS 16 feature and the most talked about feature that allows your notch to interact with apps dynamically and display real-time information. It functions as a mini-display for your notification updates and unfortunately, it is presently only available with the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

Dynamic Island, as the name implies, reacts dynamically with the new narrower notch on the Pro versions. To be more specific, the notch is 30% smaller than on the iPhone 14 and prior generations, allowing the OS to make use of the extra space to show the contents of Dynamic Island based on the live activities now engaged on your smartphone.

Which iPhone model will get Dynamic Island?

Currently not all iPhone models support the Dynamic Island feature and shortly as well iPhone 13 series and older iPhone models won’t be getting the Dynamic Island feature, that is for sure. When we talk about Dynamic Island feature in iPhone 14 series, we need to remember that not all iPhone 14 models will also be getting Dynamic Island.

The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max are considered to be the most sophisticated professional lineup ever. In a nutshell, these are the finest iPhones in Apple history. Both iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max devices come with iOS 16, Dynamic Island, and an A16 Bionic chipset.

Dynamic Island will not be accessible on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus because of the notch cutout. This implies that the new UI feature will not be available for previous iPhones such as the iPhone 13, iPhone 12, or other smartphones.
