Here Are All the Apps That Have Added Live Activities and Dynamic Island Support for iOS 16.1

The iOS 16.1 update that was released today introduces support for Live Activities, a new type of lingering Lock Screen notification that lets you track information in real time. Live Activities are visible primarily on the Lock Screen, but if you have an iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max, they also show up in the Dynamic Island.

Developers are beginning to implement support for Live Activities, and we've rounded up apps that are using the new feature.

Slopes (Free with In-App Purchases)

Skiing and snowboarding app Slopes is using Live Activities to let users track two customizable stats, along with information about who else is riding at the resort. It also provides a daily timeline of performance. Users can choose stats that include vertical distance, speed, number of runs, time spent on the slope, and more.

‌Dynamic Island‌ support is included for ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ users, offering quick access to tools like pause and resume when taking a break.

Flighty (Free with Premium Option)

Flight tracking app Flighty offers Live Activities for keeping an eye on upcoming and in progress flights. The Live Activity implementation shows on the Lock Screen three hours before a flight, offering up necessary information like time until departure, gate, flight status, booking code, seat number, and more.

After takeoff, the app includes an offline progress bar that lets you know how much time is left on a flight. On ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ models, ‌Dynamic Island‌ integration provides flight information at the top of the iPhone whenever there is a critical update like a delay. The ‌Dynamic Island‌ Live Activity also displays departure countdown and gate number while other apps are in use.

The Live Activity can be used for free on the first flight, but after that, Pro is required. Flighty Pro is priced at $5.99 per month or $49.99 per year.

Landscape (Free with In-App Purchases)

Mountaineering app Landscape is using Live Activities on the Lock Screen and ‌Dynamic Island‌ to provide real time stats, with a rolling elevation graph so you can keep an eye on your climb. The app shows elevation, total distance, and more.

Forest ($3.99)

Time management and focus app Forest shows countdown times on the Lock Screen and in the ‌Dynamic Island‌ so you can see how long you have left on the project that you're working on. Forest is an app where you grow a tree by focusing on a singular task such as studying without otherwise using your device.

Using the Live Activity option requires deep focus mode to be disabled, which is the mode that requires the Forest app to stay open, preventing the use of other apps.

Designed for photographers and those who like to track the sun, Lumy is an app that lets you know the position of the sun in any location around the world. It offers up information on sunrise, sunset, first light, last light, golden hour, blue hour, moonrise, moonset and more.

What will happen when too many apps are competing for that Island space? Who will colonize the island if it already has someone else occupying it? I see app conflicts coming soon
Apple will build a Colosseum where app developers will fight to the death over who gets to colonise the island. Possibly.
