Apple has deployed iOS 16.1 on its iPhone 14. On the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, the most striking novelty is undoubtedly the possibility of following an activity live, such as a match or boarding a plane, from the pill located at the top of the screen, also called Dynamic Island. These “Live Activities” also appear on the lock screen on all iPhones running iOS 16.1.
The feature was already available in beta outside of France, but that’s it, with the deployment of this latest update, the first applications integrating this novelty can use it on the French iPhone 14 Pro. Here is a complete list of applications benefiting from it.
The application that you have probably seen running the most to showcase this new option is probably ScoreSpot. This allows you to follow the score of a live match on your lock screen or on your pill. Definitely one of the best functions for sports fans.
Many audio apps
In the first stream of applications compatible with Live Activities, there are quite logically a good number of applications that are based on listening to audio files. We think for example of Audible, YouTube Music or Calm, the meditation application. All these apps will offer you a dedicated interface to know exactly where you are in your listening.
Focus To-Do : Pomodoro & tâches
Combine the Pomodoro, this principle which consists of segmenting your daily tasks into short sessions to increase productivity, with a classic ToDo List application. Now, your stopwatch can appear in Live Activity on iOS 16.1.
Flighty makes it possible to follow live the activity of an airplane flight. The live activity option will now add live tracking of your flight to your Dynamic Island. What to know when to board, if the flight is late, etc. This follow-up takes place three hours before the scheduled take-off. A follow-up on the lock screen is also integrated.
Carrot Weather is a weather app that tries to make the traditional weather report more fun. Access to Live Activities is unfortunately restricted to premium subscribers. This provides details of certain weather alerts that appear in the Dynamic Island.
Pestle is an application in which you can add your cooking recipes found on the internet. A kind of digital cookbook in short. With “Live activities” you can see in your pill which step of the recipe you are at. Even better, on your lock screen, the current step appears. Something to avoid constantly unlocking your phone in the middle of your cookie dough.
SmartGym is an application geared towards the practice of sport and more particularly fitness. As you would expect, Live Activities here will go to great lengths to give you the number of reps of the workout you’re currently doing as well as a little icon to give you its name and the number of reps. remaining steps before the end of your workout.
Soor proposes to replace the basic music player of iOS. This app further provides the option to follow the lyrics of the song live via “Live Activities”. Of course, lyrics can now fit in Dynamic Island. Only downside: you will have to pay an entrance fee of 8 euros.
