Apple could bring Generative AI to the iPhone with iOS 18.

Last week, Bloomberg reported that Apple had effectively halted the development of new features for all its future sperating systems, including iOS 18, in favor of fixing bugs.

While the pause has been lifted, the company still has big ambitions for next year’s iPhone software update, iOS 18. 

In his latest edition of the Power On newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported that Apple internally refers to iOS 18 as “ambitious and compelling.” 

Hence, Apple aims to ship iOS 18 with “major new features and designs” in addition to significantly improved performance and security. However, the details of the improvements are still unclear.

Gurman has also explained Apple has a daunting task ahead with the 2024 version of its iPhone software. After a few years of updates, the next version of the iPhone OS, iOS 18, could come with some groundbreaking improvements. 

In his words, Apple is working on generative AI and may bring features with the next iPhone software version. We know for sure that AI will be the focus on smartphones next year, with Google’s Bard and Samsung’s Galaxy AI already having debuted. 

However, we are unsure what AI features Apple intends to bring. Samsung recently detailed its AI capabilities, including real-time call translations, image generation, document summaries, and message drafting. 

So, we speculate Apple intends to bring something in the same realm, but we also hope that Apple brings more to the table.

Lastly, Gurman has addressed Apple’s recent decision to briefly pause the development of the new iPhone and Mac updates to fix bugs. He states the decision may result in an extremely polished iOS 18 experience on the iPhone 16 series.
