Apple's AI Push Sets the stage for Everything from Glasses to Robots

Apple is expanding its AI capabilities to enhance its existing products and enable new hardware devices. Future Apple devices will prioritise voice control and personalised information delivery. The upcoming iPhone 16 line will fully support Apple's new AI features, while the current iPhone 15 line requires the Pro version for full AI capabilities.

The tech giant's foray into AI will not only improve the functionality of its existing products but also pave the way for a new generation of hardware devices. With the integration of AI, future Apple devices will be designed to offer seamless voice control and deliver relevant information to users when they need it, eliminating the need to constantly interact with apps on a screen.

Traditionally, Apple has focused on providing high-quality hardware, software, and services like the App Store and iCloud. However, in the era of AI, this approach needs to evolve. AI is all about automating tasks and providing a more intuitive user experience. To keep up with competitors, Apple needs to update its software more frequently and shift towards a hardware-AI-cloud model.


While Apple is set to introduce AI-focused versions of its operating systems, the company will still follow its annual software upgrade cycle. However, the upcoming iPhone 16 line will fully support Apple's new AI features, while the current iPhone 15 line requires the Pro version for full AI capabilities. Additionally, Apple plans to deliver these features partly through the cloud, marking a shift in its software delivery approach.


Looking ahead, AI will enable groundbreaking hardware innovations. Apple is exploring the development of home robotics, augmented reality glasses, and AirPods with advanced intelligence and cameras. The company is even working on an Amazon Astro-style robot that can assist with household chores and potentially humanoid robots. Siri, Apple's virtual assistant, is also undergoing a revamp and could play a crucial role in future table-top robots.

The Vision Pro, Apple's upcoming device, already utilises AI for certain capabilities, such as understanding its surroundings. This technology could pave the way for AR glasses or camera-equipped AirPods that can provide users with relevant information based on their environment. Furthermore, AI-powered health coaching and sensors for monitoring body temperature and glucose levels are on the horizon.


To achieve these advancements, Apple needs to accelerate its work on large language models and catch up with rivals in the AI space. Failure to do so could result in falling behind not only in AI but also in its core business of building devices.

In other news, Apple is set to announce its latest updates at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The event will showcase new features in iOS 18, macOS 15, and other operating systems, including AI enhancements. Additionally, Apple's Vision Pro is gearing up for an international launch, with plans to expand its availability to several countries. However, the device's success as a mainstream product remains uncertain.

On a different note, owners of older Apple TVs will no longer be able to access Netflix as the streaming service will stop working on these devices at the end of July. Lastly, Dexcom's G7 continuous glucose monitor can now directly pair with Apple Watches in the US, providing users with real-time glucose data without the need for an iPhone.
