Apple Inc. AAPL is all set to reveal its artificial intelligence (AI) strategy at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2024. The tech giant will introduce its new AI system, "Apple Intelligence," and its integration into various devices and apps.

What Happened: Apple’s WWDC 2024, which kicks off on Monday, will showcase the company’s AI strategy, reported Bloomberg. The AI features will be a significant part of the event and set the tone for Apple's AI efforts going forward.

Apple’s AI strategy will focus on integrating the technology into its apps to enhance customer experience. The new AI features will be opt-in and will require devices with specific processing capabilities.

Apple will use its own technology and tools from Microsoft Corp.-backed OpenAI to power the AI features, with a strong emphasis on user privacy and security.
