So far, rumours say the iPhone 16 could get bigger screens and better battery life, all of which contribute towards providing a better smartphone experience.

According to a report by the Economic Daily News, the iPhone 16 will be powered by the A18 chip that will feature an upgraded neural engine and “significantly” more cores. It will likely improve the performance of Machine Learning and AI tasks. But it is not just the iPhone 16.

Not sure which
mobile to buy?

Apple has been working on developing AI features for its iPhone for some time and now that its competitors such as Google and Microsoft have a dedicated suite of AI features for their flagship smartphones, the iPhone maker is finally ready to roll them out. In an earnings call last month, Apple CEO Tim Cook highlighted the company’s investments in AI, saying that it was devoting a “ tremendous amount of time and effort”.

What are these AI features?

The work Apple CEO referred to is likely to be iOS 18. Just a few days ago, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggested that iOS 18 could be the “biggest” update in iPhone history. One of the most prominent upgrades could come in the form of Siri. Morgan Stanley analysts believe that iOS 18 will have generative AI in focus, and it could bring a new Siri that is powered by LLMs.

As per the reports, Apple is also looking to incorporate AI into as many apps as possible. Apple Music could get auto-generated playlists, while apps like Keynote or Pages could get a feature that automatically generates slide decks. It is also looking to bolster AppleCare with generative AI.
