iOS 18 Could Use AI To Create New Emojis For Your Chats

Apple has long been rumored to have plans to bring new AI features to the iPhone with the release of iOS 18 later this year and a new report now believes that the AI will be used to generate bespoke emojis on the fly.

Writing in the weekly Power On newsletter Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that Apple will use generative AI to create new emojis based on the content of a text message.

One standout feature will bring generative AI to emojis. The company is developing software that can create custom emojis on the fly, based on what users are texting. That means you’ll suddenly have an all-new emoji for any occasion, beyond the catalog of options that Apple currently offers on the iPhone and other devices.

Apple is also rumored to be ready to bring AI to bear on other features including improvements to notifications and Photos, while apps like Notes are also set to use AI for new voice-to-text features.

If Apple sticks to a pattern that we are now familiar with it’s likely that it will announce iOS 18 at the WWDC event on June 10 before making it available to the public in September. That release is expected to take place alongside the release of the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro handsets, too.

Apple is also expected to release big new software updates to its other platforms including the iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Apple Vision Pro.
