Apple’s On-Device and Server Foundation Models

At the 2024 Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple introduced Apple Intelligence, a personal intelligence system integrated into iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia. Apple Intelligence consists of specialized generative models fine-tuned for tasks like writing, summarizing notifications, creating images for conversations, and simplifying interactions across apps. The system is built with groundbreaking privacy innovations and follows Responsible AI principles. The models are trained on Apple’s AXLearn framework, optimized for on-device and server performance, and fine-tuned for specific tasks using adapter modules. Apple’s generative models outperform comparable models, are evaluated favorably by human graders, and are robust in handling harmful content and sensitive topics.
