iOS 18 Unveiled: Seamless AI Integration Marks Apple's Latest Technological Advancement

iOS 18 is shaping up to be a monumental update, featuring artificial intelligence (AI) across many aspects of the system. Apple regards this update as "one of the most significant, if not the most significant, in the company's history."

Anticipating iOS 18's Release

We still have some time before iOS 18 is unveiled. Following tradition, new Apple system versions are revealed at the WWDC developers' conference in June. However, even now, iOS 18 is expected to be a substantial upgrade, as reported by the reliably informed Mark Gurman of Bloomberg in his newsletter.

Inside Scoop on iOS 18

"From what I've been told, the new operating system is considered internally as one of the largest iOS updates ever, if not the largest โ€“ in the company's history," says Gurman. He had previously expressed high expectations for iOS 18, including significant advancements in AI.

Craig Federighi's Promises

Apple's software head, Craig Federighi, in addition to AI features, is said to promise "much more," as Gurman reported last year. iOS 18 is expected to include "various ambitious changes." While iOS receives a new version each year, the extent of innovation varies annually.

Revamping Siri and Messages with AI

Siri is set to undergo a complete overhaul in iOS 18, based on a large language model akin to ChatGPT. As a result, Siri is anticipated to be smarter and more adept at responding to a wider range of questions and commands. Recent rumors suggest that Apple's language model may surpass ChatGPT in intelligence.

The Messages app is also expected to receive AI capabilities, enhancing both the quality of automated responses and the ability to answer questions. Currently, it's possible to select automated responses from the Apple Watch; AI is expected to make these responses more personalized and appropriate to the context.

AI Enhancements in Apple's Suite of Apps

Apple's office applications and Apple Music are set to be AI-enhanced. Additionally, Apple's development app, Xcode, is expected to receive AI support. In competing services, this feature is already present. AI could assist in checking programming code for errors or in copying existing solutions from other apps.
