Internet Reacts to iPhone 14 Pro's Dynamic Island: 'One of Apple's Best Designs'

Following the introduction of the iPhone 14 Pro and ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro Max with the all-new Dynamic Island feature, which intelligently integrates the new pill-shaped notch replacement into iOS for system alerts and functionality, internet users have reacted in an overwhelmingly positive way to Apple's new UX design.

In the US, "‌iPhone 14‌ Pro‌" and "‌Dynamic Island‌" were trending on Twitter after Apple's "Far out" event as users praised Apple's implementation of the pill shape directly into the user experience. "By a long mile, this is my favorite feature of the new iPhones 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. Apple really made good use of that long pill hole cutout," is how one Twitter user reacted following the event.

"‌Dynamic Island‌ may be the best design work from Apple in years," another user said. ‌Dynamic Island‌ includes smooth animations for how alerts and other information such as Now Playing intelligently morph around the camera cutouts to free up space in other parts of the display. Carl Pei, the CEO of Nothing, even chimed in, calling it "smart" and saying that Apple's always-on display on the ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro and ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro Max is the "best implementation" of the technology he has ever seen.

"The ‌Dynamic Island‌ is one of Apple’s best designs in recent history. Turning what should be a downside into a useful feature," said Ian Zelbo, a popular concept creator known for his realistic renders of Apple products based on leaks and rumors. Other users also shared their thoughts:

The ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro and ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro Max, other than the new ‌Dynamic Island‌, include an always-on display, a new Main 48MP camera, and more. They will be available for pre-order on Friday, September 9, and begin arriving to customers a week later on Friday, September 16.

It's amazing how people are cheering Apple making the notch bigger and moving it into the display area.

The only thing revolutionary about the dynamic island is Apple's talent in selling it. It proves the reality distortion field is still alive and well I suppose.
Lol there's always gotta be that one party pooper.

Unclench, it's original and very cool.

It really is amazing, and Apple design at its best. Which is nice to see, considering the dearth of good software design by Apple in the last 2-3 years. Even more impressive that they managed to keep it a secret.

Yeah, I'd agree with these reviews, this is surprisingly well-implemented for a post-Steve Apple product!

Seriously reminds me of the iPhone 4 introduction, where it had leaked a couple months before with the lines on the side, and everyone said “Apple would never do that, that’s not like them at all”.
And then everyone was completely blindsided when Steve got up on stage, and said the exact same thing.
“What’s this?
Some have even said this doesn’t seem like Apple.
What are these lines in this beautiful stainless steel band.
Well, it turns out there’s not just one of them, but three of them.
It turns out this is part of some brilliant engineering, which actually uses the stainless steel band as part of the antenna system”.
That was one of the coolest moments, and even after the issues, and all of that, I still think it’s absolutely brilliant.
And the new dynamic island got a very similar reaction from me.
