Apple is betting everything on iOS 18 to do it one of the strong points of the iPhone range next year. The Cupertino company has an ambitious plan in store for the mobile operating system, which promises to be the mostambitious and compelling” of the last years. Apple’s efforts are aimed at offering a series of innovations in terms of design and performancedeveloping new features based on artificial intelligence, but at the same time with innovations aimed at ensuring robust bug-proof cybersecurity.
iOS 18, because it will be the most ambitious update in years
The last major overhaul for the iPhone operating system dates back to 2020 with the launch of iOS 14, when Apple introduced widgets on the home screen. Now, after years of modestly sized updates, Apple wants to surprise its users with new features for iOS 18.
As reported by Mark Gurman at Bloomberg, the new iPhone operating system will have a “revolutionary” characterwhich reflects the company’s desire to offer something more than just improvements. Indeed, the goal of the Cupertino giant is to release a software update that is the most “ambitious and compelling” ever.
In particular, the reference is toGenerative AI that Apple is working on for iOS 18. In fact, the challenge is to keep up with i rivals Google and OpenAI, to offer an iPhone operating system that implements a mix of ad hoc features based on artificial intelligence. At the moment there aren’t many details, but everything suggests that a turning point is approaching for the iPhone 16 arriving in 2024, which won’t just stop at a revolution in design. All of this, obviously, with an eye on managing the privacy of iPhone users and IT security.
Apple and the suspicious pause in development
A detail that emerged from the Bloomberg newsletter suggests that Apple is ready to release a significant update. The Cupertino company took it a break of a few weeks in the development of iOS 18 features, which could indicate maximum concentration on bug fixes.
A stop on the development roadmap which in any case should not have repercussions on the definitive release date and which, indeed, confirms Apple’s desire to give priority to the quality of your operating systemjust as it did in 2019. A move to ensure that, at launch, the user experience for those who buy an iPhone or install iOS 18 is maximum.
On the other hand, the Cupertino company still has several months before the next one WWDC 2024 conference, in which it will likely present iOS 18 for the first time. We therefore just have to wait for the next few months to find out what the new features will be and see how far Apple’s ambition will go in innovating its software.
