iOS 17.4 beta shows stopwatch live activity similar to timer



iOS 17.4

Apple recently announced iOS 17.4 beta for developers and it will show users stopwatch under live activity, which have been missing since iOS 16.

iOS already shows live activity for timers and this addition of another Clock app function will create a more real-time scenario for iPhone users.


Live activities are tasks that are running in the background such as voice recording, AirDrop transfer, or navigation. A visual indicator of such live activities appears in the dynamic island on iPhone 14 Pro or later models.

You can check live activity in the status bar on the home screen or at the top of the active app. The stopwatch live activity will also appear on the lock screen just like the timer.


Whenever you wake up the screen, the stopwatch will show at the bottom with cancel, lap, and the timer progress user interface.

While on the home screen, you can touch and hold the activity or swipe down from the center to expand the stopwatch activity.


iPhone with iOS 17.4 can only view stopwatch progress inside the app. For now, the new iOS is in the developer beta phase and will be released for all iPhone users in March.

Apple is preparing to bring some new changes in the iOS with this release and it will also allow a third-party app marketplace for European iPhone customers. Read more about this software below.
