Apple plans to integrate generative AI capabilities into iOS 18 to improve Siri, iMessage, and other apps, Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman reports. It could be one of the biggest software updates in the company’s history, Gurman said.
The introduction of generative AI in iOS 18 could help Apple keep up with competition from other AI assistants, such as Google’s Bard, OpenAI’s ChatGPT, and Microsoft’s Copilot. Samsung is also investing heavily in AI for its upcoming smartphones. Gurman has previously reported that Apple is working on its own LLM called “Ajax” and an internal chatbot called Apple GPT.
The release of iOS 18 is expected in September.
