iOS 18 Will Offer Humane AI-Like Text Message Summaries

When iOS 18 arrives later this year it might come with the ability to summarize iMessages using artificial intelligence, similar to a feature available on Android and the Humane AI pin.

According to AppleInsider, citing sources familiar with the matter, Apple is working on a way to use AI to summarize longer text messages while also including “all available relevant information,” including any companies, people, or locations mentioned in a text.

Apple is also reportedly working on a similar feature for Safari 18 that would provide a summary of any web page (or news article) on the screen.

Once the software has produced a summary of text messages, it will also be able to create a few appropriate responses users can select.

The Humane AI pin is a small, puck-like device that you clip to your shirt. It can answer queries, calls, and text messages so you can spend less time staring at a screen. It was created by two Apple alums, though early reviews aren’t great.

Apple is working on creating its own language model to power its AI that is capable of running without a web connection; however, it’s also reportedly negotiating with both Google and OpenAI to potentially license their AI tools to use with iOS 18 as well.

Having the AI run without a web connection will enable phones to respond faster and also allow for more privacy since data will not need to be sent to a third party.

Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke briefly about the company’s AI aspirations during a call with investors on Thursday. According to him, Apple’s AI offering will be a “unique combination of seamless hardware, software, and services integration.” Cook previously said Apple is putting “a tremendous amount of time and effort” into its AI plans.

iOS 18 is expected to be revealed during Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June.
