iOS Dev Weekly – One of the best iOS growth hyperlinks, each Friday

Did you catch Google I/O this week? It’s All the time Attention-grabbing to see what the Android Inventors have been as much as through the previous Annual Interval. 😂 This 17-minute recap will get you on top of things for those who missed it, however it’s protected to say it had a theme. Cell options didn’t make the large headlines this 12 months however have been nonetheless current with Android Studio getting AI-powered code help, a new on-device Gemini mannequin, and updates to Jetpack Compose.

However why am I speaking about that right here? Nicely, with Tim Cook dinner saying they’re engaged on generative AI options that’ll debut “later this 12 months” and Greg Joswiak dropping enormous hints when saying the convention, it’s simple to see how WWDC could possibly be just like I/O this 12 months.

I assumed it is perhaps enjoyable to assume via what that would imply, however to maintain this quick I’ll restrict myself to a few ideas:

First, Siri. It’s an apparent goal for an improve and generative AI is properly suited to the duty. My solely fear is that it’s going to must be meaningfully forward of the competitors to beat the bias of adverse opinions folks have about present technology Siri, and the competitors took an enormous step ahead earlier this week. 😬 I nonetheless hope this occurs, although.

Secondly, will we see a CoPilot-esque function in Xcode? One factor I might wager on is that if there’s any AI in Xcode, will probably be strictly on-device. I discover it onerous to imagine any giant firm permits its supply code to be transmitted to another person’s server with each keypress, however I discover it past perception that Apple would. If one thing like this ships in Xcode 16, I’d even be curious to know what coaching knowledge it makes use of. I nonetheless fear slightly about GPL coaching knowledge in CoPilot, so I hope it’s not based mostly on OpenAI’s Codex as CoPilot is. I can also’t see Apple utilizing inside Swift code as coaching knowledge, are you able to? There are many tough questions right here, so I’ll be fascinated to get extra particulars if this function ships.

My remaining thought is a protracted shot. It’s not a prediction as a result of I don’t assume it’ll occur. It’s extra of a hope, and I’m together with it right here as a result of I believe Apple would do a terrific job with it. I’d like to see a portray app that makes use of generative AI to work with your brush strokes to create artwork. It wouldn’t generate photographs from textual content however would use AI fashions that will help you enhance your sketching and portray abilities. There are a lot of ways in which an app like this might work and differing ranges of help it might present so I received’t speculate on something extra particular, however that is my long-shot hope. That is by far the least more likely to occur, primarily as a result of if it existed it will have been introduced finally week’s iPad occasion alongside the brand new pencil. I don’t care, although. It’s on my checklist!

Let’s see how unsuitable I’m in just a few weeks! 😬
