The iPhone 14 has solely been out for just a few days, however that isn’t stopping the rumor mill from churning out predictions about Apple’s subsequent iPhone. Supply chain analyst Ross Young says on Twitter that he expects Apple to embrace the Dynamic Island — the notch successor that at present solely comes on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max — on all iPhone 15 models, not simply the Pro variations (via MacRumors).
If true, this might make the Dynamic Island the usual throughout all new iPhones, permitting it to totally change the notch that Apple first launched with the iPhone X in 2017 (at the least till Apple comes up with one other design). Young additionally signifies that the bottom iPhone 15 nonetheless received’t come with an 120Hz LTPO show that permits the iPhone 14 Pro’s always-on show and snappy ProMovement suggestions, citing that the “provide chain can’t assist it.”
Yes, Dynamic Island anticipated on commonplace models on the 15. Still not anticipating 120Hz/LTPO on commonplace models as provide chain can’t assist it.

The Dynamic Island is the black, pill-shaped cutout on the prime of the iPhone 14 Pro that homes the gadget’s digital camera array. Apple cleverly blended the cutout with the remainder of the UI utilizing animations that make the Dynamic Island seem bigger whenever you work together with it. The Dynamic Island shows notifications and can ultimately allow you to monitor Live Activities, like sports activities scores or the standing of your Uber trip, from the highest of your display.
Adding a Dynamic Island to the iPhone 15 might make upgrading to subsequent yr’s base mannequin extra interesting than making the minor soar from the iPhone 13 to the usual iPhone 14, or as my colleague Allison Johnson calls it, the “iPhone 13S.”
