iOS 18 Marks the Most Significant Update in iPhone History



Apple iOS 18

Today, Mark Gurman said in the subscriber-only QnA section of his Power On newsletter that iOS 18 will be the biggest update in Apple’s iPhone history. He writes, “I’m told that the new operating system is seen within the company as one of the biggest iOS updates — if not the biggest — in the company’s history.”

Gurman confirmed that he will share particular iOS 18 features as well as changes in the future. But MacRumors, a big Apple news cover website, mentioned in the post that they already know two features that are expected to be coming with the iOS 18 update.

Expected Features of iOS 18

1. RCS Support: The first feature that is expected to come with the iOS 18 update is RCS support. Last year, in November, Apple announced that the iMessage app will support the cross-platform messaging standard RCS on the iPhone in 2024, which means you can use all the RCS between Android and iPhone.

Apple iMessage RCS support expand

As we know, if we message from iPhone to iPhone, then we see the blue bubble that was introduced by Apple in 2011. On the other hand, if an Android user messages an iPhone user then his message is shown in a green bubble. Also, Android users have limited features if we compare it with Apple’s iMessage. Nothing came forward with their Nothing Chats app but they failed to do that. They do this with Sunbird app developers. But later we came to know that the chats are not encrypted.

Now, let’s discuss how your messaging experience between Android and iPhone improves the experience.

  • Audio messages: You can send voice messages from an Android phone to an iPhone.
  • Typing indicators: As we know, when we send a message from iPhone to iPhone, then when any of the iPhone users type, we will see the typing indicator.
  • Read Receipt: With this, you can know whether the receiver has read your message or not.
  • Wi-Fi messaging between Android and iPhones: You can also message between both Android and iPhone devices with Wi-Fi as well.
  • High-resolution photos and videos: As we know, till now we could not send high-resolution photos and videos between Android and iPhone, but from iOS 18, you can send high-quality resolution photos and videos from Android to iPhone.
  • More Encrypted messages: You will get improved encryption of your messages if you compare it with SMS.
  • Improved Group Chats: The group chats will also be improved.
  • Leaving a conversation for Android Users: As we know, iPhone users can leave a conversation. So, Android users will also get the same functionality.

The above-listed features are already available when an iPhone user messages another iPhone user (blue bubble). But Apple will extend the RCS support for the green bubble i.e. Android in the Messages app. These features are already available in third-party messaging apps such as Telegram, and Whatsapp.

2. Smarter Siri: A report by Bloomberg suggested that in the upcoming iOS 18, we will see the generative AI technology. Both i.e. iPhone’s Messaging app and Siri use AI for your asked questions and to auto-complete your sentences as well. According to Gurman, Apple has also explored generative AI features for other apps over its platforms such as Apple Music, Keynote, Xcode, and Pages.

The information also reported that Apple is planning to include large language models into Siri. So, that users can automate their difficult tasks, it may be integrated into the Shortcuts app. As per a report, this feature is expected to come in the iOS 18 which is going to be launched this year.

As we know, the new version of iOS will be launched at WWDC every year in June. The stable release of iOS 18 will be in September, but the first beta is expected to be released in June as usual.
