Apollo update transforms the iPhone 14 Pros Dynamic Island right into a home for Pixel Pals

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max could have only arrived yesterday but developers already are dreaming up fun and interesting use cases for Apples new Dynamic Island interface. Take Apollo creator Christian Selig, for example. On Friday, he updated his Reddit client to implement support for Pixel Pals. The feature adds a Tamagotchi-like critter that does cute things together with your phones Dynamic Island when you have Apollo open. You may also select from multiple creatures, including a cat, dog, hedgehog, fox or axolotl.

In the event that you dont have an iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max, dont worry. You can even add the creatures to your phone as lock screen widgets provided you have iOS 16 installed. About iPhone widgets, Google teased one which will work as a shortcut to Chromes Dino game.

Selig isnt the only real person doing something creative with the iPhone 14 Pros Dynamic Island. In a tweet spotted by The Verge, WaterMinder creator Kriss Smolka showed off Hit the Island, a casino game that uses the UI element for a Pong-style game. It is possible to download it from the App Store. I could only speak for myself, but these apps make me a little jealous I’m still rocking an iPhone 12.
