During a post-keynote session at WWDC 2024, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Software Engineering, Craig Federighi, hinted at the possibility of incorporating Google’s Gemini AI model into future Apple products. This potential collaboration aims to give users more choices in AI models, expanding beyond the recent integration of ChatGPT.

Apple also introduced Apple Intelligence, a new system designed to enhance AI capabilities on iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Deeply integrated into iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia, Apple Intelligence combines generative AI with personal context to streamline tasks and provide personalized assistance. Siri receives significant upgrades, including improved language understanding and context retention, making interactions more natural and relevant. The new features will be available in beta later this year.
