Apple introduced its long-awaited synthetic knowledge push, Apple Perception. CEO Tim Prepare dinner emphasised the desire for privateness and personalization, “beyond artificial intelligence,” into “personal intelligence.

Apple’s Craig Federighi said that the generative models behind Apple Intelligence would be available across iOS, iPadOS and macOS.

Here are some of its capabilities:

  • Context-driven notifications: Apple Intelligence can recognize which notifications are important to your personal context.
  • Writing improvements: Apple Intelligence will introduce system-wide proofreading and style improvements across third-party and native apps.
  • Image generation: Apple Intelligence can create generative photos based on your photo library, similar to some other platforms. There are three styles: Sketch, Illustration, and Animation.
  • Cross-application tasking: Apple Intelligence can delve into your apps and execute tasks on your behalf. One of the examples Federighi gave was asking Apple Intelligence to pull up files sent by a contact in a certain time period.

Federighi said that privacy was a top priority for Apple. He described Apple Intelligence as a collection of “highly-capable” large language and “diffusion fashions,” as well as an “on-device semantic index” which worked across apps, to identify data and feed it to models.

Many of those models will run on-device. For those models that need to be stored in the cloud, Federighi touted Apple’s ability to let users control the kind of data you store in the cloud and how it can be accessed.

“We need to prolong the privateness and safety of your iPhone into the cloud,” Federighi stated.

We’re seated. Tim Cook briefly said hello in the prerecorded video, then kicked it off to Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. Cook said it will be action-packed and memorable. He also said Apple will announce “profound brandnew knowledge functions.” It’s a little strange he didn’t say “synthetic knowledge.”

“Talking of particular, we’re extremely excited … it is a large one … deny foolish gags, deny ridiculous props,” Federighi said.

This is a very important event for Apple. It faces pressure to show off AI

This is a very important event for Apple. The company is facing pressure to show off its artificial intelligence technology and how it folds into its products and software. The company long avoided using the acronym “AI” when talking about it, instead preferring to say machine learning. But companies such as OpenAI, Microsoft, Google, Amazon and Meta have popularized the term and are racing to add AI to core services, mostly to the benefit of Nvidia, which powers it.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has teased “big plans,” a change of approach for a company that does not like to talk about products before they are released. We will learn about those plans today.

Apple store important into WWDC.

Here’s a peep at what Apple stock is doing leading into the event. It remains the third-largest U.S. company behind Nvidia and Microsoft. Nvidia passed Apple to become the second-largest company on June 5, as the stock continues to rip on the back of the artificial intelligence boom.

I just got to my seat. People are mulling around and waiting for the event to start. The audience will watch a prerecorded video of the event, so don’t expect much live commentary from Apple executives. Based on the conference scheduling, it looks like this event is going to last about two hours.

Also, check this out. Apple opens up a huge door at its headquarters so people can sit inside and outside and see the screen:

iOS 18 announcement expected today

There are a lot of big announcements expected on Monday. I’m most excited to hear about iOS 18 and what new changes are coming to the iPhone, and specifically, how artificial intelligence will play into iOS 18. I’m curious if Apple will use a partnership with OpenAI to create a chatbot, or if it will specifically focus on using AI for other tasks, such as summarizing notes, offering live translations and recording voice memos.

But aside from iOS 18, I’m also interested in what kind of changes Apple will make to iPadOS, which is still awfully similar to Apple’s iPhone software. The new iPads Pro have Apple’s latest M4 chip and it seems like Apple should use that extra power to make the tablet’s software more like a MacBook. It probably won’t happen, but I can dream.

Who’s giving the keynote?

Apple CEO Tim Cook will almost certainly open and close the keynote, as is standard. And, similar to most recent events, this is prerecorded, so he won’t be live on stage like he used to be. Instead, everyone will watch the same video you can tune into on YouTube above. Cook will typically say a few words, toss to a quick teaser video and then introduce another executive to break into other topics, such as iOS 18, the new version of macOS, updates to the iPad software or something else.
