Apple’s Siri assistant just got its biggest-ever upgrade as part of iOS 18 – including new ChatGPT powers thanks to an OpenAI partnership and deep integration with supported iPhones, iPads and Macs.

The new version of Siri, announced at WWDC 2024, is powered by Apple Intelligence, which gives the voice assistant features like ‘on-screen awareness’ to make it work better with apps. 

The next-gen Siri has been given a visual makeover, opening with a glowing light around the edges of your iPhone’s screen rather than the typical symbol. But it’s the deeper integration with apps that promises to make it a much-improved assistant.

iOS 18: the five upgrades I'm really hoping for at WWDC 2024

For a start, Siri will no longer be just a voice assistant – you can type questions to Siri by double-tapping the bottom of the screen, and switch between voice and text. The voice assistant will also helpfully be able to answer questions about how to use your iPhone, iPad and Mac.

But if Siri can’t answer a question, you’ll also be able to connect it to the OpenAI’s ChatGPT-4o model for free. Apple says your info and details of the requests won’t be logged. These new Siri features will be coming with iOS 18 “later this year”.

This is a developing story….
