Cupertino  — Apple just kicked off a brand new era for the company with the introduction of its first generative AI features for the iPhone.

At its annual Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday, the company unveiled the first batch of tools powered by “Apple Intelligence,” from personalized Genmoji – Apple’s AI-generated emoji – to a significantly smarter Siri, which can answer questions about your schedule, what’s in your email and what time your loved one’s flight is landing.

The company said it’s been impressed with the generative AI tools already on the market, but wanted to make it more personal with privacy in mind.

It has to be deeply integrated into your product experiences.”

He added: “Most importantly, it has to understand you and be grounded in your personal context, like your routine, your relationships, your communications, and more. And, of course, it has to be built with privacy, from the ground up.”
