Dynamic Island, applications
It becomes a portion of the screen for ongoing activities. Charging the battery. The Airpods, once connected, with an animation that makes them rotate. The duration of the call in progress, with frequency graph. Apple maps, with directions for the next corner. Airplay to see what we are showing on the tv. Airdrop to see the progress of the file we are sharing.
It is capable of showing two activities at the same time: for example the song we are listening to – or the radio program or podcast, with image – and at the same time the countdown.
The view of the application state that activates in the “island” is essential, but holding the fingertip still on that portion of the screen and activating the “haptic touch” zooms in with more views and options.
