Five things iPhone 14 stole from Android

The dust is still settling now that Apple has officially revealed its iPhone 14 lineup, and we were a little surprised by some of the announcements. I have some ideas for the Apple Watch Ultra, but I’ll save them for another time. Instead, I’ll look at some of the things the iPhone 14 “stolen”, especially the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, from previous Android phones.

Dynamic Island – LG V10

Perhaps the most polarizing announcement during Apple’s “Far Out” event was the presentation of Dynamic Island with iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. Apple has finally done what everyone has been asking since the introduction of the iPhone X and got rid of the notch. still wandering in iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Plus, but it makes sense from Apple’s perspective that it would offer some sort of distinguishing feature between its non-Pro and Pro models.

Dynamic Island may seem like a revolutionary new feature, and while that’s true to some extent, the fact remains that LG got there first with the LG V10. In an effort to provide users with a different way to interact with their notifications, LG introduced a “second screen”. With the second screen, users can assign shortcuts to contacts, view incoming notifications, and control which music plays, all without using the home screen.

It was one of those instances where LG tried to do something different, but the overall implementation and lack of support ruled the second screen from the start. The LG V20 kept the second screen, providing essentially the same execution, but still received mixed results. Some V20 owners found this to be very convenient, while others found it “doesn’t really add much to the experience.”
