The new ActivityKit framework became available in iOS 16.1 beta and Xcode 14.1 beta. Live Activities help people keep track of your app’s content with real-time updates.
With the ActivityKit framework, you can start a Live Activity to share live updates from your app in the Dynamic Island and on the Lock Screen. For example, a sports app might allow a person to start a Live Activity that makes live information available at a glance for the duration of a game.
On the Lock Screen, your Live Activity appears at the bottom of the screen. On devices that support the Dynamic Island, the Live Activity appears in the Dynamic Island on the Home Screen and while people use other apps. People tap a Live Activity in the Dynamic Island to launch your app, or touch and hold it to show an expanded view with more content.
You can already create your own Live Activities, Apple has released a guide to the API and the development of new widgets.
