Apple’s Big AI Leap: What to Expect at the Upcoming WWDC

Apple Intelligence will not rely entirely on on-device processing. Instead, it will use a mix of local and cloud-based processes, depending on the task's complexity.

Apple is gearing up to dive into the world of generative AI at the upcoming World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC). Rumors have been swirling about a potential partnership with OpenAI, aiming to give Siri a significant boost.

According to Bloomberg, Apple is preparing to introduce something called “Apple Intelligence” during the keynote on Monday at 10 a.m. PT. This seems to be part of a broader strategy, potentially involving a partnership with OpenAI and the introduction of a new chatbot.

Apple Intelligence will be available as an opt-in beta, much like the developer updates Apple usually releases post-WWDC and it’s expected to roll out on the latest iPhone, iPad, and Mac models.

Some older devices might also support Apple Intelligence. These include iPads and Macs with M1 chips or newer, as well as the iPhone 15 Pro. But here is the thing, the standard iPhone 15 might not be compatible with this new feature; which is weird, considering the fact that the regular iPhone 15 model is not up to 1 year since the release date.

Apple Intelligence aims to enhance current apps, offering features like page summarizations in Safari and improved notification summaries. Siri is also set for a 2024 upgrade, allowing it to handle tasks like photo editing via voice commands.

Despite some hardware limitations, Apple Intelligence will operate using a combination of local and cloud-based processing, depending on the task’s complexity. This ensures the system remains efficient and effective across different devices.

Rather than focusing on flashy new features, Apple appears to be concentrating on making its operating system more intuitive and more user-friendly with AI.
