100+ Apps That Support Live Activities and Dynamic Island on iPhone

Live Activities iOS 16 iPhone

In October 2022, Apple announced its latest iOS 16.1 alongside iPadOS 16.1, macOS Ventura, watchOS 9.1, tvOS 16.1, and HomePod 16.1. This update introduced the long-awaited feature called Live Activities to the public.

It might not be obvious when you first hear about Live Activities since only a handful of apps currently support it. You need not worry about it; we’ll guide you through what Live Activities are on iPhone, how they work, and list apps that currently support Live Activities on iOS 16.1 and above.

What are Live Activities on iOS 16?

Live Activities on iPhone is a pinned notification on your iPhone lock screen that shows you what’s happening in real time. It could be a workout, sports game, delivery, or anything else. Furthermore, if you have an iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max, Live Activities are also visible on Dynamic Island (pill-shaped cutout).

iOS16 Live Activities Examples

For instance, you order food from apps like Uber Eats and keep your iPhone aside. Generally, if you want to check its status, you’d go to the app and click on the order status. However, Live Activities allows you to take your order status to the lock screen in a notification form, which updates in real time.

As a result, you’ll be able to check your order status right from your iPhone’s lock screen. It saves you time and effort since you wouldn’t have to unlock your iPhone and navigate the app.

Apple shared its Live Activities API with the developers after iOS 16, allowing them to benefit from Live Activities in their apps. Live Activities are currently available on iPhones running iOS 16.1 and above.

How to Enable Live Activities on iPhone?

Developers enable the Live Activities feature by default on their apps. However, if the developer didn’t enable it, here’s how you can enable it on your iPhone.

  1. Open Settings on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down and select the app you want to enable Live Activities.
  3. Enable the toggle next to Live Activities.
