The Dynamic Island feature in the latest iPhone 14 Pro model surprised everyone and it is one of the most interesting innovations of the new Apple device, but in some cases it can distract the users a lot and, therefore, it can be useful to turn it off.

In any case, there is currently no way to completely turn off Dynamic Island content on your iPhone 14 smartphone, since their function is built into the latest iOS 16 operating system. However, if you get distracted with Dynamic Island, you can disable it temporarily.

So, let’s say, for example, if you are distracted by the animations of Dynamic Island, you can easily turn them off by swiping left or right on the same novelty, without affecting related background activities.

If there are two activities, the Dynamic Island divides into a pill on the left and a smaller one on the right. In this case, if present, it is possible to turn off the animations of one or both by sliding your finger on the larger segment to make it disappear, and then do the same on the smaller one, and the pill will return to its initial shape allowing you to concentrate better.
