Apple Teases iOS 18 Updates and AI Enhancements at WWDC 2024

Apple's upcoming World-Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2024, scheduled from June 10 to June 14, is set to unveil major updates across its flagship products, with a spotlight on the next-generation iOS update - iOS 18. This update promises to be the most comprehensive in iOS history, emphasizing artificial intelligence (AI), according to recent reports.

Ahead of the official reveal at WWDC, Apple has already teased several exciting features of iOS 18, including eye-tracking technology, music haptics, and generative AI. Here's what we can expect from this latest update:

Eye-Tracking Technology
Initially featured in the Vision Pro, Apple’s eye-tracking technology will now be available on iPhones and iPads. This feature allows users to control their devices using just their eyes, eliminating the need for touch input. It uses the front camera and on-device machine learning, enabling users to select items on the screen by focusing their gaze. Notably, this feature does not require additional hardware beyond a brief setup.

Generative AI Capabilities
iOS 18 will introduce a suite of on-device AI features across all Apple devices, significantly boosting their intelligence. These AI features include auto-generated playlists on Apple Music and AI-powered writing assistance in Pages and Keynote. Unlike other AI services that rely on cloud servers, these features will operate directly on the device.

Several applications are expected to benefit from these AI enhancements:

Notes App: It will offer generative suggestions and editing tools powered by on-device Large Language Models (LLM).
Photos App: Users will likely have access to AI-driven editing capabilities, similar to those found on Google Pixel devices, allowing for adjustments like removing unwanted elements.
Siri: Apple's virtual assistant is anticipated to receive a major AI upgrade, enhancing its overall functionality.
iOS 18 will also introduce a real-time audio transcription feature, enabling users to read, edit, copy, and share transcriptions, with a summarization feature expected to follow.

Vehicle Motion Cues
A novel feature aims to reduce motion sickness for travelers using their devices by simulating vehicle motion. Animated dots on the screen edges mimic vehicle movements, reducing sensory conflict and alleviating discomfort for users prone to motion sickness.

Music Haptics
Apple plans to launch Music Haptics, translating Apple Music songs into tactile sensations—taps, textures, and vibrations. This feature aims to provide an immersive music experience for users who are hard of hearing or deaf.

iOS 18 Release Date
Traditionally, Apple releases new iOS versions in September alongside new iPhone models. During WWDC 2024, Apple is expected to announce iOS 18 and commence beta testing for developers, possibly including the public.

Stay tuned as WWDC 2024 promises to be an exciting event with groundbreaking updates and innovations from Apple.
