According to the latest report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple is working on AI technologies in-house with its own cloud infrastructure. Most of the upcoming AI experiences will be processed on the device for lower latency and added privacy. The report also suggests that, while Apple isn't building its own generative AI chatbot like ChatGPT or Gemini, it could partner with Google/OpenAI to meet user demand. Therefore, the AI ​​chatbot experience on iPhone is expected to be similar to existing third-party solutions.

According to the same report, this year, iPhones will see very visible traces of generative AI-supported features in first-party apps like Siri, Photos, Apple Music, Notes, and others.

Similarly, the Photos app is also likely to get Galaxy AI-like capabilities, where users will be able to remove/add backgrounds using generative AI. According to an earlier report by Bloomberg, Apple may also introduce AI-assisted video editing features with the iOS 18 update.

It is also said that Siri will get an AI overhaul, making it even more capable. The Apple Music app is also said to get AI capabilities, where it will be able to offer services like auto-generated playlists and more.

There is also a possibility that Apple may limit some features in the iPhone Pro series, as they pack more powerful chips than the entry-level models, which are able to handle AI workloads more efficiently.

Similarly, for the iPad and Mac, Apple is likely to add AI capabilities to its productivity suites such as Pages, Numbers and Keynote. Apple will officially reveal these features at WWDC 2024 on June 10, and will be made available on new iPhones in September.
