Users will now notice a solid black background instead of the previous blurred view of the device's wallpaper when using Reachability on iPhone models equipped with the Dynamic Island, including the iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
With this change, the Dynamic Island will no longer appear twice on the screen when Reachability is activated.
Reachability, an optional feature that makes it easier to access the top half of the screen, may be enabled in the Settings app under Accessibility Touch Reachability.
Users can activate Reachability by swiping down from the bottom edge of the screen, which makes it simple to tap to access the top half of the screen.
It's important to note that in the first iOS 17.1 beta, the Reachability background will continue to show a blurred wallpaper on older iPhone models without the Dynamic Island.
With changes to Apple Music, AirDrop, and other capabilities, iOS 17.1—which is scheduled for release in late October—promises to improve iPhone customers' entire user experience.
