Apple Intelligence Compatibility: Will Your iPhone, iPad, or Mac Get the New AI Features?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has finally snuck its way into Apple devices. The new powerful features are a part of Apple Intelligence (a fancy name for AI features). The list of powerful features includes new writing tools, Genmoji and Image Playground for AI-generated images, more powerful Siri, ChatGPT integration, and more.

As expected, Apple Intelligence features are compatible with select Apple devices only. Here’s the list of all iPhones, iPads, and Macs that support the new Apple Intelligence features.

Apple Intelligence is deeply integrated into iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia. These powerful features will be exclusive to iPads and Macs equipped with M1 or later chips, as well as iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models featuring the Apple A17 Pro chip. Thanks to the powerful silicon chipsets, the processing will happen on-device.

Apple Intelligence relies on understanding deep personal context while also protecting user privacy. A cornerstone of Apple Intelligence is on-device processing, and many of the models that power it run entirely on device. To run more complex requests that require more processing power, Private Cloud Compute extends the privacy and security of Apple devices into the cloud to unlock even more intelligence.


Now let’s take a look at all Apple Devices that are compatible with Apple Intelligence.
