iPhone 16 gets a special new chip for lightning-fast AI functions

It was already known that the iPhone 16 will have many new AI functions. To achieve this, Apple has also designed a special chip. You need to know this.

iPhone 16 will have a special chip for AI functions

Apple’s next-generation A18 and M4 chips for future iPhone and Mac models will have significantly more cores, the Taiwanese website reports Economic Daily News. This significantly improves the performance of AI and machine learning.

According to the latest rumors, iOS 18 contains new AI functions for Siri, Shortcuts, Messages and Apple Music, among others. Tim Cook recently said that Apple is working on generative AI and will reveal more details “later this year.” iOS 18 will likely be announced in June at Apple’s annual developer conference WWDC.

iPhone 16 with AI will be released in September

Chips from the A18 series will probably appear for the first time in September, namely in the iPhone 16 models. Previously, some AI features were rumored to be exclusive to the iPhone 16 models. The improved chip could therefore be a reason for this. The first Macs with an M4 chip will probably not be released until late 2024 or early 2025.

Apple chips are getting better and better

Apple has continued to improve chip performance over the years, even though the number of cores has not always changed. For example, Apple says that the A17 Pro chip of the iPhone 15 Pro has an up to 2x faster chip compared to that of the iPhone 14 Pro.

Most Mac models are equipped with a 16-core chip. The exception to this is the Mac Studio and the Mac Pro, which both have an M1 Ultra or M2 Ultra chip with 32 cores.

AI is becoming increasingly popular

The popularity of AI took off in 2022, after OpenAI released ChatGPT. That is a chatbot that can respond to questions and other prompts. Google, Microsoft and other companies have since released similar chatbots and tools, including chatbots that can automatically generate images, respond to spoken questions and more.
