AI is no longer artificial intelligence, at least if Apple would have its way. In true Apple fashion, the tech giant recently unveiled its own take on the same, calling it Apple Intelligence (AI). Essentially, the company plans to integrate AI features into its operating software to make the entire iOS experience heavy on artificial intelligence, err, Apple Intelligence.

What is Apple Intelligence?

In practice, Apple Intelligence would work just like any AI tool and is designed to make your overall experience easier and less dependent on manual actions. According to the tech giant, most processing for AI will take place directly on your iPhone, MacBook, or iPad. For complex tasks, Apple's servers will do the processing and return with answers in what the company calls “Private Cloud Compute."

Apple claims its AI integration will have user privacy at the centre. This means that the Phone, iPad, and Mac will not interact with the server unless its software is publicly auditable.

How will Apple Intelligence work?

Just like any other AI tool, Apple Intelligence is designed to take over your basic computing tasks and will provide useful results in real-time. If you're familiar with AI tools such as OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google Gemini, you're already good to go.

With Apple Intelligence, the company is also adding functionality to Siri, equipping it with the tools to perform more tasks. Writing emails, proofreading content, and playing media will be made easier with AI, the company claims.

Whether you want to summarise your notes, audio, or emails - AI will be able to do it all. In addition, Apple claims that its AI integration will also help with animation, illustration, and sketches inside the Messages app. It will also support searching within your pictures! Fascinating, right? But have you wondered which Apple devices will receive this functionality? Worry not, we've created a comprehensive list of all Apple devices that will receive the Apple Intelligence update.

Which devices will get Apple Intelligence (AI)?

In the first phase of Apple Intelligence rollout, many devices will get the update, including iPhone 15 Pro series and naturally, the upcoming iPhone 16 series will have it from the get go. Apple has decided to integrate OpenAI’s ChatGPT with iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and the macOS Sequoia ecosystems.

Apple Intelligence will make its way to iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia and will be available to use on the iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, and iPad and Mac with the M1 chip and later. In the beginning, AI integration will be available only in the US but will eventually make its way to other regions.

In the meanwhile, we've compiled a list of Apple devices you can buy now to get prepared for the Apple Intelligence experience.
