Apple iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max Smart Island Pill Screen Supports Displaying Camera Privacy Indicator

At the "Far Out" conference held early this morning, Apple released the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, retaining most of the iPhone 13's design - including for mobile phones Notches for the selfie camera and Face ID sensor. Apple also introduced the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, with a "smart island" pill screen to show alerts and background activity, brighter displays and AOD always-on display, A16 bionic chip, new color options, and more.

As of iOS 14, when an app is actively using the camera, a green dot appears to the right of the iPhone notch notch. On the iPhone 14 Pro series models, this privacy indicator is now displayed in a new pill-shaped "smart island."

The repositioned camera indicator can be seen in Apple's video introducing the iPhone 14 Pro, which appears when the built-in camera app is opened. A green dot indicates that an application on the iPhone is using the camera or camera and microphone .

The green dot that appears directly next to the front-facing camera on iPhone 14 Pro models is similar to the green light that appears when a MacBook webcam is active, allowing for a more consistent experience across devices. An orange dot also appears in Smart Island when an app is actively using the iPhone's microphone instead of the camera, but footage shown during Apple's event suggests that the orange dot will appear to the right of the battery in the status bar, at least in Smart Island" does this when it is already in use.

The "Smart Island" is unique to the iPhone 14 Pro series models, and it replaces the traditional notch on all iPhone 13 series models. With the help of software, the "pills" transform into different shapes and sizes for incoming calls, alerts, notifications, Face ID authentication, timers, turn-by-turn navigation, real-time activity, and more.
