iOS 18 Rumored to Add New Features to These 15 Apps on Your iPhone

Apple is expected to announce iOS 18 during its WWDC keynote on June 10, and new features have already been rumored for many apps, including Apple Music, Apple Maps, Calculator, Messages, Notes, Safari, and others.

Below, we recap iOS 18 rumors on a per-app basis, based on reports from MacRumors, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, and others:

  • Apple Maps: At least two new Apple Maps features are expected on iOS 18, including custom routes and topographic maps. Custom routes would allow users to choose specific roads to travel on while navigating, while topographic maps include details such as trails, contour lines, elevation, and points of interest for hiking. Topographic maps were added to the Apple Watch with watchOS 10.
  • Apple Music: With iOS 18, Apple Music will reportedly be able to auto-generate playlists.
  • Calculator: iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS 15 are rumored to feature a revamped Calculator app with several new features, including a sidebar that lists recent calculations, an improved interface for converting units, integration with the Notes app, and more. That means the Calculator app will finally be available on iPads.
  • Freeform: iOS 18 is rumored to add a new “Scenes” option to Apple’s drawing app Freeform. This feature would allow users to select specific sections (“scenes”) on the canvas for easier navigation.
  • Health: Apple is reportedly planning new AI-powered features for its Health app, but no specific details are known yet.
  • Keynote, Numbers, and Pages: Alongside iOS 18, Apple reportedly plans to update its iWork suite of productivity apps with new generative AI features for auto-generating slides in Keynote, writing faster in Pages, and more.
  • Mail, Photos, and Fitness: These apps will reportedly be “overhauled” with iOS 18, but no specific details are known yet.
  • Messages: iOS 18 is expected to add RCS support to the Messages app, which will improve the messaging experience between iPhones and Android devices by allowing for higher-resolution photos and videos, audio messages, typing indicators, read receipts, Wi-Fi messaging, and more. It has also been rumored that the Messages app will use generative AI to auto-complete sentences more effectively.
  • Notes: With iOS 18, the Notes app is expected to be able to display mathematical notation, allowing users to include more types of algebraic equations and formulas in notes. The app is also rumored to gain a built-in audio recording tool, eliminating the need to switch over to the Voice Memos app.
  • Safari: iOS 18 is likely to add a browsing assistant to Safari, which could summarize web pages and more. A new “Web Eraser” feature that would allow users to remove certain elements from web pages has also been rumored.
  • Shortcuts: With iOS 18, users will reportedly be able to automate complex tasks more easily with the Shortcuts app.

While they are not dedicated apps, it has also been rumored that generative AI technology will allow the iPhone’s virtual assistant Siri and built-in search tool Spotlight to respond to more complex questions and search queries.
