Following the Tuesday’s rise, Apple’s market capitalization is again above $3 trillion.

At the annual Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday, the iPhone maker showcased a number of artificial intelligence- related features for iOS 18.

It also announced a partnership with ChatGPT maker OpenAI.

Apple’s AI announcements eased concerns about the company’s growth as investors hope that customers will pay up for the next generation of iPhones. 

Last month, Apple had announced the largest stock buyback program in US history at $110 billion. 

The AI-packed updates are aimed at enabling the users of Apple devices to perform more tasks in less time.

However, the full suite of AI features will work only on the recent iPhone 15 line because the functions require advanced processors. But, the company will offer plenty of upgrades for other iPhones as well.

The company will deploy AI to allow users to create emojis, dubbed as “Genmojis”.
