iOS 18 confirmed: major upgrades are coming to Mail, Messages, Photos and more

Apple has officially announced iOS 18, the next version of its iPhone operating system, at WWDC 2024 (you can follow all the announcements as they happen at our WWDC 2024 live blog). 

The huge software update will bring significant upgrades to core iPhone apps including Mail, Messages, Photos and Wallet later this year, with many of these upgrades utilizing the power of Apple’s improved on-device AI processing.

Mail, for instance, will soon be capable of categorizing your emails and providing easy-to-read digests, while the Photos app is being unified into a single view comprising a photo grid and a dates grid.

Messages, too, will soon let you react to messages using any emoji, and you’ll be able to schedule messages to send at a convenient time in the future. Apple is also adding new text formatting, so you’ll be able to underline, strikethrough and bold your messages, as well as add new text formatting, like ripple effects.

Apple hasn’t yet shared a release date for iOS 18, though the company typically begins rolling out the latest version of its operating system alongside its new iPhones. The iPhone 16 line will almost certainly debut in September this year, so that’s when we expect iOS 18 to become available to download on compatible iPhone models.
