Unveiling the AI roadmap at WWDC

Analysts from Wedbush said that Apple’s announcement of a new AI product on June 4 at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), as well as its use of AI technology in its devices, might be closely watched, and this might also be the secret weapon for Apple when the next generation of devices sold out.

Reports suggest that Apple may even collaborate with tech giant Alphabet Inc. Additionally, AI integration will be a key factor in entrusting users with Google and Honda products, drawing from the collaboration of both companies’ experience.
