  • Of course, why not? Apple isn’t known for taking a backseat when it comes to artificial intelligence, so it’s no surprise that Apple is being smart by naming its new ecosystem Apple Intelligence.
  • This AI ecosystem is how Apple is working with OpenAI to leverage the LLM models that OpenAI has built on, thanks in part to its success with ChatGPT.
  • Now Apple is bringing this ecosystem to macOS 15, as well as iPhone and iPad. However, Apple does this in a unique way that is different from what we have seen from other competing tech giants.
  • How? Well, Apple gives users power by allowing them to decide to enable and use the Apple Intelligence ecosystem, rather than simply making it an integral part of their products.
  • In this way, Apple is, to some extent, withdrawing from the chaotic rat race, positioning itself as a cautious and more ethical entity when it comes to artificial intelligence.

  • Apple announced a Windows version of Phone Link called “Continuity” that connects your Macbook to your iPhone, making it easier to access your iPhone remotely via your laptop.
  • The software giant has dubbed the interaction “iPhone mirroring,” which essentially brings your iPhone’s home screen to your MacBook, allowing you to manage notifications from your phone directly on your laptop, drag and drop between your iPhone and MacBook, and swipe between pages or launch your favorite apps directly from your MacBook .
  • The Continuity app also works great with the new standby mode on iPhone, allowing you to quickly access information.
  • Your iPhone stays locked while you play with these activities, so you don’t have to worry about someone else gaining access or seeing what you’re doing.

Siri 2.0

  • We all know that Siri has been around since 2011 and since then it has experienced stiff competition from other AI assistants that had more to offer. This is no longer the case as Apple has decided to go a step further with a massive upgrade enhanced with AI features.
  • Now the new Siri as an AI assistant will be present in the macOS Sequoia user interface, instead of being a standalone application.
  • It will work with LLM ChatGPT to allow the AI ​​to communicate in a more natural context, continuing previous conversations and messages rather than providing full context in every single prompt.
  • Additionally, Siri 2.0 now has screen recognition, which allows it to respond to what you see on screen without having to provide specific context for each prompt in a way that wasn’t previously possible.

New and improved Safari

  • The browser now also has a redesigned “Reader” that makes reading articles on macOS Sequoia more enjoyable and distraction-free by offering a simplified view of the article the user is reading, a summary and table of contents for longer articles.
  • Another interesting new software update is that when Safari detects a video on the page you’re on, the browser helps bring it to the foreground while giving you full access to system playback controls, including picture-in-picture.
