Major announcements were made at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2024, including the release of iOS 18 and improvements to macOS.

With these enhanced AI capabilities, Apple has enabled Siri to perform better, becoming more contextually aware, natural, and deeply ingrained in the Apple ecosystem. With ChatGPT integration, this transition promises additional AI-powered capabilities and more complex replies. Redesigned to be "more natural, more contextually relevant, and more personal," Apple claims that Siri can now complete daily chores more quickly and efficiently.

New design and layout
When engaged, a bright light that encircles the screen edges adorns the newly redesigned Siri. The goal of this graphic makeover is to make the user experience more captivating. Beyond aesthetics, Apple added onscreen awareness to Siri's repertoire of capabilities, allowing it to take actions depending on what's on the screen.

Better language understanding
With enhanced language comprehension skills, Apple's Siri can now comprehend and react to human requests with more naturalness. With this update, consumers can be certain that Siri will keep context even when they make mistakes in their speech. With Siri's ability to type and smoothly move between text and speech inputs, users now have even more options for interacting with the assistant.

Collaboration with OpenAI
Notably, Apple and OpenAI collaborated to enhance Siri's generative AI capabilities by integrating ChatGPT technology. With this combination, Siri is able to respond with greater sophistication and manage tasks that are more complicated. Users of Apple's iPhone and Mac operating systems will be able to access ChatGPT through upgrades, which will improve features like text and content production. Apple's plan to use cutting-edge AI technology and maintain its competitiveness in the IT industry includes this relationship.

Compatibility with third-party apps
Thanks to the new App Intents API, one of the most notable aspects of the new Siri is its ability to perform actions across a broad variety of apps—both from Apple and third-party developers. This implies that programmers may give Siri particular commands to execute inside their apps.

Only for selected Apple devices
The newest iPads, Macs, and iPhones will be the only devices that can utilise this sophisticated Siri experience. Most of Siri's new features, which are powered by Apple Intelligence, will only be available on the iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, iPads, and Macs with M1 CPUs or later.
