iPhone 14 Pro’s Dynamic Island Won’t Appear In Screenshots
If you’re bagging yourself a new iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max this week you’re probably already looking forward to taking that new Dynamic Island for a spin. But according to new reports, you’re probably not going to see it when you take a screenshot.
Just like when you take a screenshot on your iPhone 13 or any other notch-laden model, the Dynamic Island won’t appear in screenshots the majority of the time.
However, there are instances when it will show its face, according to MacRumors.
One smaller detail that we have now confirmed is that the Dynamic Island is only visible in screenshots taken on iPhone 14 Pro models while it is being used by apps, or when the camera/microphone indicator dots are active. The screenshot shows the entire Dynamic Island, including any added elements, such as a circular timer icon.
That’s unlikely to really make much difference to almost anyone, but it’s an interesting point and one that some might not have considered. The upshot is simple, though — take a screenshot to show off your fancy new iPhone and there’s a chance nobody will be able to tell that it’s actually the new hotness at all.
Apple’s new iPhone 14 models go up for sale on Friday after pre-orders began last week. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are the only models with the Dynamic Island, however, with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus continuing with the notch.
