[iOS] New Car Mode UI - Safe Area Constraints

[iOS] New Car Mode UI - Safe Area Constraints






(iPhone 14 Pro)

Operating System

(iOS 16.2)


My Question or Issue

When the user is presented with the new UI for Car Mode, content at the top of the ViewController appears to be constrained to the superview rather than the safe area layout guide.

The top bar controls are blocked behind the system status bar elements which covers most of the tappable area for the ‘dismiss’ and ‘exit car mode’ buttons.

Hopefully this is a quick and easy fix to re-constrain the elements and you should be good to go!

New UI is looking great otherwise 👍 very clean and good use of space. Like it!


NB: screenshot doesn’t show dynamic island position but hopefully it’s clear enough from the overlap with iOS status bar elements.
