Apple is working diligently on iOS 18, its next iPhone software update. The company will unveil this major release at WWDC 2024. While expectations are high for AI features, reports suggest an equal focus on home screen customizations.

These reports indicate it will empower users to arrange app icons freely. Users can create blank spaces, rows, and columns between icons. This enables a more personalized layout. Android already offers such customization options.

Renowned analyst Mark Gurman states iOS 18 will be iPhone’s biggest update ever. He cites the integration of AI capabilities as the primary reason. Gurman also notes this integration promises to make customizations more convenient than iOS 16.

Apple will likely announce iOS 18 details at WWDC in June. Anticipated revelations include generative AI functionality for Siri and RCS support for Messages. Other new features elevating user experience are expected too.

Additionally, Gurman reports Apple is refreshing its iPad lineup soon. While dismissing a March 26 unveiling as false news, he suggests a March event is likely. Apple already launched the new MacBook Air with M3 on March 4.

Interestingly, rumors suggest iOS 18 will support all iOS 17-compatible devices. This ensures a seamless transition for existing iPhone users. As Apple pushes boundaries, the tech community eagerly awaits AI integration and customization enhancement details.
