In the latest newsletter by Bloomberg’s renowned tech journalist Mark Gurman, exciting rumors have surfaced about the upcoming iOS 18 release. Gurman, known for his accurate insights, suggests that iOS 18 is poised to become one of the most significant software updates in the history of Apple’s iOS.

iOS 18: RCS Integration and Generative AI for Siri

iOS 17.0.3: The Fix for iPhone 15 Pro Overheating Issues

One of the major highlights expected in iOS 18 is the integration of Rich Communication Services (RCS) into the native Messages app. Apple has already confirmed plans to introduce RCS support to iPhones in 2024, ushering in a new era of cross-platform communication between iOS and Android devices. This development promises an array of features, including high-resolution media sharing, enhanced group chats, read receipts, typing indicators, location sharing, and Wi-Fi messaging capabilities.

iOS 18 is set to revolutionize the capabilities of Siri through significant AI improvements. Gurman’s sources indicate that Apple intends to introduce generative AI capabilities to iOS, featuring its own large language model (LLM). This enhancement will not only elevate Siri’s performance but also extend its influence to other native apps like Messages.

The anticipated AI features will empower Siri to field questions more effectively and auto-complete sentences with enhanced accuracy. This marks a substantial leap forward in Apple’s commitment to providing users with a more intelligent and responsive virtual assistant.

Beyond Siri, Apple is reportedly exploring the integration of generative AI features across various native apps. This includes potential enhancements for Apple Music, Pages, Keynote, Xcode, and Shortcuts. The focus is on creating seamless task automation for complex processes, promising a more intuitive and efficient user experience.

While these rumors are generating significant buzz, it’s important to note that iOS 18’s official unveiling is expected at WWDC 24 in June. Until then, Apple enthusiasts can eagerly anticipate the confirmation of these groundbreaking features that could reshape the iOS landscape. Stay tuned for more updates as we approach the highly anticipated iOS 18 launch.


Pokdepinion: It’s not a surprise to see smartphone trends shifting towards AI nowadays. I’m just hoping the features will be worth the hype, especially if it ends up being something you have to pay extra for.
