Popular Reddit app Apollo was updated today with support for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, and Apollo developer Christian Selig decided to implement a fun little feature — a “Tamagotchi” for the dynamic island.
The app update adds a small creature to the area above Dynamic Island on the new iPhone models. It can be adapted to a cat, dog, hedgehog, fox, or axolotl, and the little creature simply moves around the dynamic island as you browse Reddit.
The new “Dynamic Island Zoo” option is opt-in for Apollo, and is available with the latest version of the app. Selig has also added tiny creatures as lock screen widgets, so even those who don’t have an iPhone with Dynamic Island can add a crater to their device.
Ok I think I got the best idea for Dynamic Island on iPhone 14 Pro. I added a cat that lives there like a Tamagotchi and just hangs around and does cute stuff when you browse reddit in my app (Apollo). pic.twitter.com/xJJlazHH4E

Earlier this week, Apollo was updated with iOS 16 support, so there are several other Reddit-related widgets available for those running the iOS 16h operating system.
Apollo can be downloaded for free from the App Store. [Direct Link]
