Apple enhances Siri with AI upgrade in iOS 18 for better responses


Apple is giving Siri a major makeover. Announced at their WWDC event, Siri is set to receive a range of AI-powered features designed to make it smarter and more helpful.

Here's what you can expect:

  • A New Look and Feel: Siri will have a more prominent presence on your device, with a glowing border when activated.
  • Improved Understanding: Siri will be better at deciphering your requests, even if you stumble over your words. It can also maintain conversation context, like suggesting events after you inquire about the weather in a specific location.
  • Smarter Interactions: You can request information by simply describing the app or feature you need. Siri will understand and deliver.
  • Type or Talk, Your Choice: Soon, you'll be able to type your questions and requests directly to Siri, switching seamlessly between typing and voice commands.
These upgrades are powered by Apple Intelligence, a new privacy-focused system that lets Siri take actions within apps on your behalf. Imagine Siri finding your mom's flight information in your email or extracting license details to fill a form – all hands-free.

Apple Intelligence also grants Siri "on-screen awareness." This means Siri can understand what's on your screen and take action accordingly. Need to update a friend's contact info when they send their new address? Siri can handle that.

But the exciting news doesn't stop there! Apple is integrating OpenAI's ChatGPT with Siri. This means Siri can leverage ChatGPT's expertise for specific tasks, like offering recipe suggestions. Siri will always ask for your permission before using ChatGPT, and any information retrieved will be displayed directly on your device.

Remember when Siri first debuted in 2011? It seemed like a revolutionary tool. However, in recent years, it hasn't kept pace with advancements in AI. But with these upgrades and ChatGPT integration, Siri is poised for a major comeback!
