The individual responsible for leaking information about the Dynamic Island feature on the iPhone 14 Pro has now disclosed another potential addition that could be available in iOS 17, which is set to be revealed in less than a month. Going by the handle Analyst941 on Twitter, they have been sharing several details about the upcoming iPhone software update.
Previously, they provided teasers about changes to the Control Center, Dynamic Island, and interactive widgets. Now, they have presented their concept for a feature called Live Activities in Apple Maps.
In a recent post, they mentioned that Live Activities support for Apple Maps will enable a seamless transition when unlocking the iPhone, allowing users to view notifications over the map by swiping up and display most Lock Screen elements until unlocked.
According to the leaker, you may allegedly be able to minimize the map to the size of the music player on the Lock Screen and expand it again by tapping on the activity. However, they admit that they haven’t obtained sufficient details or visuals to substantiate this particular claim.
It’s worth noting that Analyst941’s track record for leaks isn’t entirely established, as they only revealed information about the Dynamic Island feature on the iPhone 14 Pro prior to its release. In contrast, they have shared numerous rumored features expected in iOS 17 and watchOS 10 over the past few months.
Ultimately, we will have to wait until the WWDC 2023 keynote on June 5th at Apple Park to determine the accuracy of the Twitter user’s information. It remains to be seen whether their leaks were reliable or if their subsequent disclosures should be approached with caution.
WWDC 2023 is anticipated to unveil new features for iOS 17, iPadOS 17, watchOS 10, macOS 14, and tvOS 17. Additionally, Apple is expected to announce its mixed reality headset, the xrOS operating system for Reality Pro, a 15-inch MacBook Air, and a Mac Pro.
With all these potential announcements, WWDC 2023 promises to be one of the most eventful and action-packed conferences of the year.
