These are some of the novelties announced at the Google I/O conference.
While Apple plans to celebrate WWDC23 on June 5, Google has already had its own I/O conference in which the company has taken the opportunity to present a lot of exciting news such as its Pixel Fold, its Pixel 7ahis PixelTablet and multiple artificial intelligence services.
With WWDC23 just around the corner, we have thought of a series of Google news that would not suit him but that is not bad for the ecosystem of Apple products. Will Apple have prepared the presentation of any of these new Google features?
A touch of artificial intelligence for Siri
We start with one of the most obvious innovations that Apple should incorporate into its product catalog. During the Google I/O many new AI features for Google Bard, Google Maps, Google Docs and Gmail. Siri needs a drastic change and the AI would come in handy. Apple is rumored to be developing its own artificial intelligence for Siri but it won’t be based on ChatGPT and there are many complications in the code base of the company’s virtual assistant.
A magical editor for the Photos app
The arrival on the scene of iOS 17 and (above all) iPadOS 17 should be preceded by one of the most exciting novelties of Google I/O: the Google Photos Magic Editor. An automatic photo editing function that goes beyond removing objects in a photo and allows move subjects for the whole image and even change weather conditions captured in a snapshot. It is true that the Apple Photos app allows you to extract subjects, add filters and recognize and translate text, but Google’s magic editor goes one step further.
An iPhone as foldable as the Pixel Fold
We have spent years and years seeing all kinds of rumors related to a folding iPhone and there has even been speculation that the first device with a folding screen could be an iPad but… so far nothing at all. Companies like Samsung, OPPO and Google already have their own foldable smartphones. When will it be Apple’s turn? It is true that this type of terminals still They have not achieved large sales figures, but Apple could popularize them even more. There is potential, you just need to polish the product well.
A higher level of customization in iOS 17
The Google I/O conference allowed us to discover some of the new software that will be introduced in Android 14. Among them, the arrival of new widgets and shortcuts for the lock screen, the customization of automatically generated wallpaperscinematic wallpapers and keyboard improvements with AI suggestions. If there’s one area where Android beats iOS, it’s customization, and Apple should follow Google’s lead in this regard.
An iPhone SE as powerful and advanced as the Pixel 7a
Google’s Pixel 7a has surprised the world with an overwhelming amount of hardware news. Apple should update its iPhone SE product line to compete with the new mid-range terminal from the Alphabet subsidiary. The Pixel 7a has a battery of 4,385mAh far superior, a base storage model of 128GBa 8GB RAM more powerful and even a fingerprint reader integrated into the screen. All this for a starting price of 509 euros, 50 euros cheaper than the 64 GB version of the iPhone SE. Cheer up Apple!
WWDC23 is coming
There’s nothing left for Apple’s 2023 WWDC developer conference celebration. In it, the Cupertino company will present all the software news of its operating systems iOS 17, iPadOS 17, tvOS 17, macOS 14, and watchOS 10, among others. And who knows, we might see some news related to Google I/O announcements.
