With macOS 15 and iOS 18, Siri could benefit from Apple's substantial enhancements in artificial intelligence. Several market reports indicate that the company plans to employ large-language models (LLMs) to totally redesign Siri. In the revised digital assistant, users may expect greater precision and contextually informed answers, increased functionality for automated tasks and in-app management. Some notable upgrades such as create content, summarise articles, and make proactive recommendations are also expected.

It is expected that AI-powered capabilities will be added to a range of built-in applications, such as Photos, Notes, Mail, and Safari for improved creativity and productivity. The Photos app could offer more advanced editing capabilities, while the Notes app may include tools like transcription and summarisation. The System Settings app is also likely to be revamped for enhanced functionality.
