iOS 16.1 brings new Live Dashboard for Dynamic Island to iPhone 14 Pro

The dynamic island has been very useful so far, to make the pill-shaped cutout more appealing instead of a distraction. iOS 16.1 is currently in beta mode and it is said that the software update will bring something new.

Quickly called Live Activities, it will also appear on the lock screen once iOS 16.1 is live. This feature aims to bring live scores of selected sports to the dynamic island, as well as other activities. If you’re watching a live sports game on Apple TV, Live Activities will display the scores seamlessly on your iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

That being said, those who don’t have the pro variants can still check the scores on the lock screen. It is also reported that a Live Activities widget will also debut on iOS 16.1. The sports that will be included in the live activities are Major League Baseball (MLB), NBA and Premier League.

The NBA and the Premier League are certainly two popular sports for Malaysians, but they will only be launched in the United States and Canada for the time being. Hopefully it will be rolled out globally. As for the MLB in live activities, it will be launched in the United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Brazil, Mexico, Japan and South Korea.

It would be cool if the live activities featured esports as well. If it were possible, what game would you like to see included? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more tech news on
