iOS 18 introduces a range of generative AI features across the operating system, enhancing apps like Messages, Siri, and Photos.

A major update to Siri enables better natural interactions and speech recognition capabilities.

Initial AI features will run on-device, ensuring privacy and reducing reliance on cloud servers.

Users can place app icons anywhere on the Home Screen grid and pick custom colors for app icons.

Apple emphasizes privacy with AI models trained separately from ser data, which remains on the device.
