  • WWDC 2024 revealed big upgrades to iOS, macOS, wachOS and more
  • Apple Intelligence is Cupertino's push into AI 
  • A smarter Siri with generative AI powers
  • Apple Vision Pro finally gets global launch dates

Apple's last event took place on June 10, 2024, with the Worldwide Developers Conference. As mentioned we got to see official updates to all of Apple's main software platforms. 

These included smarter features of iOS  (and a new Game Mode), and macOS, slicker fitness tools for watchOS and... err... a native calculator app for iPadOS 18. If you want to try out early versions of these updated operating system, check out our guides on how to download the iOS 18 beta on your iPhone and how to download the watchOS 11 beta onto your Apple Watch.

But the most attention-grabbing announcement was the reveal of Apple Intelligence, which is Apple's big push into AI with a consumer-focus; so bringing AI tools and services to iPhones, iPads and Macs, while keeping user data as private as possible. 

And Siri got a big dose of smarts via ChatGPT, allowing users to talk naturally to the virtual assistant and have it better understand them. On top of this, the clever Siri will be deeply integrated into letting you do things like type questions to Siri by double-tapping the bottom of the screen, and switch between voice and text.  

Fior a neat summary of what was revealed, check out our article on 13 things we learned from WWDC 2024 including what Apple Intelligence is and why a Calculator app can be exciting
