Apple recently released its quarterly financial report. The company announced revenues of $119.6 billion and net income of $33.9 billion in the previous quarter. Speaking during these statements, CEO Tim Cook stated that the company is working on productive artificial intelligence software features that will be available to customers later this year.
Artificial intelligence coming to iPhones confirmed
As you may recall, we recently reported that iOS 18 will be the biggest update since the first iPhone, and Tim Cook's remarks seem to be in line with that. The fact that Cook mentioned productive artificial intelligence several times, but didn't say anything definitive, seems to confirm that we will see a major release this fall. "Looking ahead, we will continue to invest in these and other technologies that will shape the future. This includes artificial intelligence, where we continue to invest tremendous time and effort, and we're excited to share details of our ongoing work in this area later this year."
Analysts tried to press Cook for more details during the statements, but the CEO refrained from elaborating. However, from the rhetoric, it sounds like something really big is coming: "But we have some things we're incredibly excited about that we'll talk about later this year."From advanced photo editing to text processing enhancements, AI software features have been a major selling point for smartphones from Google and Samsung in recent months. It's rare for Apple to foreshadow its upcoming moves, so we can take this as a sign that the company has ambitious plans to integrate AI into its software platforms (iOS, iPadOS and macOS) later this year. Finally, Cook says he thinks productive AI is a huge opportunity for Apple.
