The main new feature of iPhone 14 Pro models is dynamic island, a bean-shaped area that replaces the notch found in previous models. With the help of the software, the dynamic island transforms into different shapes and sizes for things like incoming phone calls, alerts, notifications, Face ID authentication, timers, and more. Dynamic Island will also integrate with Live Activities in third-party apps starting later this year.

One of the smaller details we’ve now confirmed is that Dynamic Island only appears in screenshots taken on iPhone 14 Pro models while being used by apps, or when the camera/mic indicator points are active. The screenshot shows the entire dynamic island, including any added elements, such as a circular timer icon.

On the other hand, Dynamic Island does not appear in screenshots when it is completely inactive. In this case, the screenshot simply shows the wallpaper behind Dynamic Island, which is the same screenshot behavior as on iPhones with a notch.

This approach makes sense, because when Dynamic Island is actively used, it contains information that could be valuable in screenshots.

according to Marquis Brownlee review Of the iPhone 14 Pro models, this same behavior applies to screen recordings on devices as well.
