The iPhone 14 Pro’s Dynamic Island is a big letdown so far — here’s why

You may think that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max’s Dynamic Island is one of the biggest reasons to upgrade. But as far as I’m concerned, this morphing display cut-out is currently a waste of potential.

Apple decided to one-up the simple selfie camera punch-hole found on Android phone displays, by letting the display area around it adjust to show you ongoing activities from certain apps. It gets rid of the long-maligned notch and tries to give it some actual use beyond just being a hole in the screen. But having initially been impressed by the concept at launch, I’m disappointed at how little use it’s provided me over a month of the iPhone 14 Pro Max being my daily driver.

I appreciate that we’re less than two months into the iPhone 14 Pro’s life, but the apps I commonly use don’t have any use for the Dynamic Island. Most of the time, the Dynamic Island stands empty, essentially being just a regular notch like the standard iPhone 14 and earlier iPhones had.
