Apple is already working on the iOS 18, and the new update will offer plenty of generative AI features. A new report suggests the upcoming update will be the biggest in the company’s history.
This major iOS update will bring AI features across the board, offering a similar experience to Galaxy AI. Here is everything you need to know about iOS 18 and what features you can expect with it.
iOS 18 Update Will Bring Ambitious Changes With AI Features
According to a report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the upcoming iOS 18 will be the “most ambitious and compelling” update in years. Furthermore, Gurman claims that Craig Federighi, Apple’s head of software engineering, told employees that the upcoming update will have “ambitious changes all around”.
In addition, the iOS 18 update will offer plenty of AI features, including a complete overhaul of Siri based on LLM (Large Language Learning Model). Moreover, iMessage will also offer AI integration with the ability to complete sentences and ask questions.
Other apps, such as Apple Music, will be able to create AI-generated playlists, iWork (Keynote and Pages) will offer AI features for productivity, and Xcode will help developers code apps faster with AI.
Apple will likely announce the next iOS version during its WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) in June. These AI features could cost the company around $1 billion for development.
Furthermore, the Apple iPhone 16 series will likely rely more on iOS 18 instead of bringing any major hardware changes. These phones could also offer AI features similar to GalaxyAI and Google Pixel 8 series.
