The iOS 16.1 Lock Screen will support iPhone 14 / Plus, iPhone 14 Pro / Max “Dynamic Island” and older models

The IT House reported on September 18 that Apple recently announced iOS 16.1 will enable the Live Events to feature. This will allow iPhone users to see what's happening directly on the lock screen, such as a sports game or a food delivery.


With iOS 16.1, Apple is testing the integration of real-time activity with sports games through the TV app, which is available to developers and public testers this week.



Additionally, tapping the "Follow" button for a sports game in the TV app displays live activity on the lock screen for that game, such as the scoreboard, and play-by-play action, such as a baseball player striking out. As shown below, the score is accompanied by a summary of the game.  


On iPhone 13 and earlier, as well as iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, live activity appears at the bottom of the lock screen. As part of the new "Dynamic Island" around the Face ID sensor and a front-facing camera of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, live activity will appear at the top of the lock screen. The new pill-shaped area around the Face ID sensor and front-facing camera display system alerts and other content at a glance, among other features.


Apple announced that iOS 16.1 will be released later this year, bringing real-time activity to the masses. In the case of sports, the feature will initially be available for MLB games in the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K., Brazil, Mexico, Japan, and South Korea, as well as NBA and Premier League ground games in the U.S. and Canada only.


The Clock app and third-party apps will also support timers set in Live Events. Developers will be able to submit apps that support Live Events to the App Store once the iOS 16.1 RC preview is available.
