A smart island, what is there to be excited about?

I don’t know how many people stayed up all night to watch the launch of the iPhone 14 series. As the saying goes, “the poor are watching, the rich just wake up and buy it”, like me, it must be the former. To be honest, the iPhone 14 this time is really nothing to watch. Except for a slight change in the configuration, everything else is almost the same as the 13. Even Jobs' daughter couldn't help but joked on social platforms, saying, "This is me who replaced the iPhone 13 with the iPhone 14 after the Apple conference." Compared with the iPhone 14, the Pro series will appear much more normal: the bangs have become digging holes, the rear lens has been upgraded from 12 million to 48 million, and the A15 has been replaced by an A16... Although the charging power we criticized has not changed, but only Just seeing these things has already made countless fruit fans obsessed with it. The bangs have become digging holes, but Face ID has not been lost. Under the condition that you can use the face to unlock normally, this area can also cooperate with the screen to realize various interaction and display methods, which is what Apple calls "Smart Island". ". Even if everyone is used to digging holes, having such a lively and interesting digging hole really makes it stand out from the crowd of hole digging phones. It has to be said that Apple does have its own unique understanding. When the front lens and various sensors cannot be truly hidden under the screen, and the designer can only use this form to present it, this trick that the UI designer came up with really makes the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max "smart" up. But in fact, this is only an innovation at the software level, and even to a certain extent, innovation is not considered, it can only be a solution. The function of Smart Island is not strictly exclusive to the current state of digging holes. Under many interfaces that Smart Island can display, the bangs on iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and other models can actually be realized. It is nothing more than adjusting the position of X and Y and adjusting the display area. Even worse, the biggest role of Smart Island is "notifications", such as call status, schedule reminders, real-time activities, unlock status, charging status, alarm clock notifications, and more. The function of the smart island is to present these "notifications" with the highest priority together with the digging hole. In fact, Apple is not the first manufacturer to do this. As early as the end of 2018, Honor released a similar function on the V20 series. The Honor V20 adopts a single-hole design in the upper left corner. At the press conference, Zhao Ming called this hole-digging "Charming Eye", and specially adapted many functions for it, such as talk time capsules, selfie reminders, etc. However, in terms of software optimization, Apple will do a lot better. Personally, I guess that if there is no accident, this function will continue until the day when Apple really launches the "true full screen", and everyone will become more and more accustomed to it. iPhone. In fact, compared with the emergence of Smart Island, I am more concerned about Apple's changes in some pain points, such as faster charging power, even if it comes with 40W; Bring a different data cable anywhere; for example, add a call recording, so that you don't have to call and ask again if you don't understand it... So there is really nothing exciting about Smart Island. When the first phone with a hole-punch screen came out, no one was used to it, and Apple, which is good at tuning users, was afraid that everyone would not be used to it?
