Define Model

Define model-data. There is dynamic and static properties. Dynamic can be updated in time and make changes in UI. Static using only for launch Live Activity.

struct ActivityAttribute: ActivityAttributes {
    public struct ContentState: Codable, Hashable {
        // Dynamic properties.
        // Can be updated when Live Actvity created.
        var dynamicStringValue: String
        var dynamicIntValue: Int
        var dynamicBoolValue: Bool
    // Static properties.
    // Used only when make live actvity.
    // Can't update it later.
    var staticStringValue: String
    var staticIntValue: Int
    var staticBoolValue: Bool

Add UI

Define Widget wrapper:

struct LiveActivityWidget: Widget {
    let kind: String = "LiveActivityWidget"
    var body: some WidgetConfiguration {
        ActivityConfiguration(for: ActivityAttribute.self) { context in
            // UI for lock screen
        } dynamicIsland: { context in
            // UI for Dynamic Island
