Long before Apple revealed the iPhone 14 Pro, the rumor mill had already predicted that Cupertino’s latest would sport a radically different front camera. The rumors started off accurately describing the two camera cutouts, and eventually went on to nail the pill shape with camera indicators in between. However, what came out wholly out of left field was Dynamic Island — Apple’s co-mingling of software smarts with hardware constraints to hide the unsightly cutouts.
Some may call Dynamic Island a prime example of Apple’s infamous reality distortion field to draw attention away from the two gaping holes in the display, but I’ve been using the iPhone 14 Pro for the last five days, and it surprises me to say that I’m sold on the idea.
