Apple Unveils Apple Intelligence

Apple Intelligence leverages the power of Apple silicon to understand and create language and images, perform actions across apps, and utilise users’ personal contexts to simplify and speed up everyday tasks. A key feature is on-device processing, which provides personal intelligence without collecting users’ data. Private Cloud Compute sets a new standard for privacy in AI, allowing computational capacity to flex between on-device processing and larger, server-based models running on dedicated Apple silicon servers.

iOS 18: More Personal and Intelligent

With iOS 18, users can arrange apps and widgets freely on the Home Screen, customise buttons on the Lock Screen, and access more controls in Control Centre. The redesigned Photos app automatically organises photo libraries into a new single view, with helpful collections keeping favourites easily accessible. New text effects in iMessage bring conversations to life with dynamic, animated appearances, and users can now communicate via satellite in the Messages app even without a cellular or Wi-Fi connection.
