Yes, the iPhone 16 lineup will have all those fancy and fun new AI ("Apple Intelligence") features that Apple is excited about. The good news is this could mean longer battery life (or the same battery life, but with a lighter battery). NurPhoto/Getty ImagesThe one thing we all want, that we all crave, is much better battery life, not just a small boost. And the upgrade in battery life in the Series 9 is — I do not exaggerate — life-changing. The American Experiment is about ideals and dreams — and we can dream of a world with really, really long battery life.

Apple needs to release GenAI services soon — or risk Nvidia overtaking it in value, analyst says. The prediction comes as Apple suffers a decline in iPhone sales in China. Apple is shifting its focus further towards generative AI after killing its electric car project. One key reason Apple may need to ramp up its generative AI efforts is because of iPhone sales headwinds. Leaders of the project reportedly said it nixed the car so employees on that team could instead work on generative AI.
