DynamicCow

With iPhone 14 Pro and Max, iOS 16 introduces the feature of Dynamic Island on the Home Screen. It is used to display whenever your iPhone is unlocked alerts and current activity in progress such as music, timer, AirDrop connection, etc. DynamicCow was created to enable this feature on not-supported devices. Matteo Zappia released DycamicCow for TrollStore 2 extending support to iOS 16 – 16.6.1, and iOS 17.0.

Download DynamicCow IPA

DynamicCow was released as an IPA package for iOS 16 – iOS 16.1.2 with support for MDC devices. Recently, Matteo Zappia updated DynamicCow IPA to support all devices running iOS 16 – 16.6.1, and iOS 17.0 by executing DynamicCowTS for TrollStore 2 IPA installer. Installation with TrollStore 2 requires you to enable the URL Scheme from TrollStore Settings.

What is DynamicCow?

DynamicCow is an application using the MacDirtyCow exploit allowing you to enable Dynamic Island feature on all iOS 16 devices. Note that this is not a plugin, and it modifies the iOS 16 files to turn on the Dynamic Island. Therefore, DynamicCow MDC will not work on iOS 15, iOS 14, etc. However, newly released DynamicCowTS for TrollStore 2 can run on iOS 16 – 16.6.1, iOS 17.0.

Using the MacDirtyCow exploit you can enable Dynamic Island on every device that is running iOS 16.0 to iOS 16.1.2 without jailbreak. No other version of iOS 16 is or will be supported. This is not a feature, but a bug that was discovered for iOS 16.1.2 and below. DynamicCowTS for TrollStore 2 supports iOS 16 – 16.6.1, and iOS 17.0. iOS 17.0.1 and newer are not supported.

After installing the DynamicCow IPA on your compatible device you can easily unlock the Dynamic Island on your Home Screen. DynamicCow allows you to choose between the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max layout for your device. You should pick the layout based on the display resolution of your iPhone to best fit the screen.

Know issues: In some devices (iPhone 11) along with Dynamic Island a red bar is displayed with a rdar error. There is no fix at the moment.

Matteo Zappia released DynamicCow as an open-source project, with the source code made available through the GitHub. This allows developers and other interested parties to contribute to the project, submit bug reports, or even fork the project and create their own versions.

The tweak was written in a combination of Objective-C and Swift programming languages. The developer released only one version of the app. As of 2 Feb 2023, the latest version of DynamicCow IPA has been updated. New updates will be released soon to fix known issues.

Dynamic Island tweaks

To enable Dynamic Island on iOS 16.1.2 – iOS 16.5, and iOS 16.6 Beta 1 there are a couple of tweaks using the KFD exploit. Among them are Canvas and Sizei tweaks. DynamicCowTS supports iOS 16.0 – iOS 16.6.1, and iOS 17. If you're in search of an alternative to Dynamic Island, look no further than the jailbreak tweak called Dynamic Peninsula, which runs on iOS 12 – iOS 16, and also on older devices including iPhone 6, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8.
