Apple Confirms iOS 16.1 Will Include Live Activities on the Lock Screen and Dynamic Island as well.
Apple stated today that the Live Activities Lock Screen functionality will be accessible when iOS 16.1 is released. Apple informed developers that the ActivityKit API is now available, so they may begin implementing Live Activities into their applications.
Live Activities are notifications that are always current that allow users to monitor real-time events from the Lock Screen. If you’re interested in a sports game, for instance, you can view the latest score on the Lock Screen. Similarly, if you’re waiting for an Uber, you can watch for your driver to approach.
