Tim Cook, the head of Apple, spoke about new AI (Artificial Intelligence) features Apple is planning to release this year. This news came out during Apple’s earnings call on February 1. Cook talked a lot about “generative AI”, saying Apple is putting a lot of effort into this area.
Cook said they’re excited to share more about their AI work later in the year. He suggests that these developments will be a big part of Apple’s future.
There’s a lot of talk that Apple will update its iPhone operating system, iOS, by adding this new AI technology. This update might be one of the biggest changes to the iPhone ever.
Experts believe that the new iOS 18 will be a major update. They think it might be the biggest in Apple’s history. Apple is looking into adding AI to Siri, its virtual assistant, and the Messages app.
This would include new features like summarizing text and making suggestions. Apple Music, Pages, and Keynotes might also get these AI updates.
Apple usually announces its new software in June at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). So, we might hear more about iOS 18 then.
Cook’s announcement is significant because it shows Apple wants to compete with other big tech companies like Microsoft, Google, and Amazon in AI. These companies have been working on advanced AI that can create text and images.
Last year, Apple didn’t announce a big AI model, but they’ve been using machine learning in their products, like identifying people in photos.
Last year at WWDC 2023, Apple introduced a new autocorrect feature for the iPhone keyboard that uses technology similar to GPT, a type of AI. But they didn’t use the term “AI”, instead, they said “machine learning”.
For now, Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, has hinted at major AI developments coming from Apple this year. This could include a big update to the iPhone’s operating system and new features across various Apple apps. It seems Apple is aiming to be a key player in the rapidly evolving AI tech field.
