Apple Intelligence, iPhones, and the rest of WWDC 2024

By David Pierce, editor-at-large and Vergecast co-host with over a decade of experience covering consumer tech. Previously, at Protocol, The Wall Street Journal, and Wired.
There were almost two different WWDCs this year. First, Apple did its classic platform whiparound, detailing all the new ways you can add stuff to your homescreen, share stuff with your friends, watch stuff on your TV, calculate stuff on your tablet, and more. In a normal year, that would have been the show. We would have talked about app icons for 45 minutes and gone home.
The second act of WWDC was the Apple Intelligence show, in which Apple began to unveil its AI strategy. We saw a lot of features and ideas about how things might work — including a new and pretty exciting vision for Siri — but also got a sense of how Apple is planning to approach this potentially disruptive new category. We heard a lot of buzzwords! But also a lot of ideas.
On this episode of The Vergecast, we gather in a house just down the street from Apple Park to sort it all out. We compare Apple’s AI approach to Google, OpenAI, and others in this space. We talk through all the news from all the platforms and discuss why things like RCS and a Control Center redesign could be game-changers. (Here at The Vergecast, we love a customizable widget system.) We also go through the features we’re personally most excited to get on our devices this fall — and the ones we couldn’t care less about. And of course, we talk Calculator.
