Apollo App Adds 'Pixel Pals' to Dynamic Island iPhone 14 Pro

The popular Reddit app Apollo today updated with support for iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, and Apollo developer Christian Selig decided to implement a fun little feature — “tamagotchi” for Dynamic Island.


An app update adds tiny little critters to the area above Dynamic Island on new iPhone models. It can be customized into a cat, dog, hedgehog, fox, or axolotl, and the little critter just wanders around Dynamic Island as you browse Reddit.

The new “Dynamic Island Zoo” option for Apollo is opt-in, and available with the latest version of the app. Selig has also added a little creature as a Lock Screen widget, so those who don’t have an iPhone‌ with Dynamic Island can also add creatures to their device.

Earlier this week, Apollo was updated with iOS 16 support, so there are also a number of other Reddit-related widgets available for those running the iOS 16‌ operating system.

Apollo can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]
