According to the popular tipster Tech_Reve, the iPhone smartphone maker Apple is using a large language model (LLM) to completely overhaul Siri and turn it into an “ultimate virtual assistant” and “killer AI app”. This corroborates Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman’s claim, in which he confirmed that Apple was working to make Siri smarter by developing what the company internally calls Apple GPT.
The iOS 18 update will unlock AI features for Siri
The company is set to revamp the Siri experience and you will be going to experience it on the next iOS version, which will be announced at next year’s WWDC event. The upcoming AI capabilities in question for Siri will reportedly be based on cloud-based processing instead of on-device.
While Siri is rumored to draw power from cloud-based AI, Apple could make those AI features the “standard” in the iPhone 16 and subsequent models through the on-device AI processing path.
