According to the latest report by Bloomberg, Apple might coin a new term for the new AI features; possibly calling it Apple Intelligence. Some features will be powered by an on-device neural processing unit (NPU), and some of the features are likely to leverage cloud computing capabilities.

It is also speculated to introduce several generative AI features, leveraging the neural processing unit (NPU) on the latest iPhones, iPads, and Macs that Apple has shipped over the last few years, including the latest iPad Pro with the M4 chip.
