NEW DELHI: At the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2024) held this week, Apple unveiled a slew of innovative AI capabilities to enhance its device ecosystem later this year. Central to this announcement is the debut of Apple’s proprietary AI model, dubbed Apple Intelligence. This cutting-edge technology harnesses user data stored on their devices to deliver personalised responses to queries.

Apple Intelligence

Apple introduces its latest innovation, Apple Intelligence, an AI system tailored for iPhone, iPad, and Mac users. This advanced technology combines generative AI models with personalised context to provide customised responses, akin to ChatGPT but with a deeper understanding of user preferences and habits. Apple Intelligence is seamlessly integrated into iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and MacOS Sequoia, leveraging the power of Apple Silicon to comprehend language, generate images, and streamline tasks across applications while prioritising security and privacy with Private Cloud Compute (PCC).

Apple Intelligence enhances user communication and writing skills with systemwide Writing Tools embedded in iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia. These tools enable users to write, rewrite, proofread, and summarise text across various platforms, such as Notes, Pages, Mails, and third-party apps. Features like ‘Rewrite’ offer different tone options to suit different audiences, while ‘Summarise’ condenses text into easily digestible formats.

In email management, Apple Intelligence simplifies tasks with features like Priority Messages, highlighting urgent emails at the top of the inbox, and Smart Reply, offering quick response suggestions. Users can also view email summaries without opening them, ensuring efficient communication. Overall, Apple Intelligence enhances user productivity and communication, making everyday tasks easier and more efficient.

Siri’s Enhanced Intelligence

Siri’s capabilities have evolved significantly with Apple Intelligence. Now, Siri seamlessly integrates information from various apps to provide personalized assistance. For instance, it can brief you on upcoming meetings by retrieving details from your calendar, summarizing pertinent documents from emails, and even offering weather updates to help you dress accordingly.

AI-Generated Emojis

Expressing yourself in iMessage has become even more creative with AI-generated emojis. Users can now craft their own emojis simply by typing a text prompt, and Apple Intelligence transforms it into a unique, personalized emoji. Additionally, users can generate non-photorealistic images to add a touch of fun and flair to their conversations.

OpenAI Partnership

In a groundbreaking partnership with OpenAI, Apple introduces a seamless integration with ChatGPT. When Siri recognises that a query could be better answered by ChatGPT, users have the option to tap into its vast knowledge base directly from their Apple device, ensuring they receive the most relevant and accurate information, regardless of whether they have a ChatGPT account.

Privacy Updates

Privacy remains paramount with new iPhone updates. Users can now “lock” specific apps using Face ID, Touch ID, or their passcode, ensuring sensitive information stays secure. Moreover, the ability to “hide” apps from the home screen provides an added layer of privacy, preventing any media from those apps from appearing elsewhere in the system.

Real-Time Call Transcripts

Empowering communication, iPhone users can now record and transcribe calls in real-time directly from the phone app. All parties involved are notified when a call is being recorded, ensuring transparency and consent.
