Tim Cook confirms: ‘Big news in the field of AI at Apple this year’

There were already rumors that Apple will make major changes in the field of AI and Tim Cook now confirms this. We already know this!

Apple is busy with AI

A meeting was held this week at which Tim Cook answered a number of questions about the future of the company. During the meeting, the company’s financial results were shared, but attendees also had the opportunity to ask questions. That is always the case, but Tim Cook has now confirmed for the first time that Apple is busy working on AI in the background.

Compared to companies like Microsoft and Google, Apple is still lagging behind in the field of artificial intelligence. It is therefore expected that Apple will make a big catch-up this year by incorporating new AI functions in iOS 18. This will reportedly be the biggest update for your iPhone in years. Tim Cook now seems to confirm this, as he made the following statement during the meeting:

As we look ahead, we will continue to invest in these and other technologies that will shape the future. That includes artificial intelligence, where we continue to spend a tremendous amount of time and effort and we’re excited to share the details of our ongoing work in that space later this year.

Striking statement Tim Cook

It is striking that Tim Cook makes this statement, because he has not previously indicated that Apple is working on AI. The term artificial intelligence has even been avoided at Apple until now, but that has now changed. With this, Tim Cook seems to respond to critics who say that Apple is increasingly lagging behind competitors in the field of artificial intelligence.

According to Tim Cook, a huge amount of time is currently being spent on developing new AI functions. According to rumors, Siri in particular will have many new functions. The voice assistant will reportedly get better integration with the Shortcuts app in iOS 18. This allows Siri to perform many more tasks and multiple actions can be performed at once.

This is when iOS 18 will be released

Other apps such as Apple Music, Messages and Photos will probably also receive useful AI functions. We will probably only see this in iOS 18, the major iPhone update of the year. Apple therefore still has some time to take major steps in the field of artificial intelligence, because the update will not be released until September. A few months earlier, Apple unveiled iOS 18, which will happen in June.

Apple usually presents the new software at the same time as the new iPhone and Apple Watch at WWDC.

Then read here what we already know about the biggest update for your iPhone in years!
