Apple released the latest betas for tvOS 16.4 and macOS Ventura 13.3, and it looks like we’re getting two new enhancements for the next updates.
First, ChatGPT has been widely talked about for several months, and Google and Microsoft have been integrating ChatGPT into their products. According to 9to5Mac, the latest beta suggests that Apple has been working on a “Siri Natural Language Generation” framework, which will presumably make Siri “smarter” by enhancing Apple’s personal assistant’s natural language capabilities. Siri has been heavily criticized for being behind other competing personal assistants when it comes to being “less smart” than the competition. However, Apple’s ongoing commitment to protecting users’ privacy especially involves using Siri. Therefore, it’s time for Siri to change, and we could see more features across Apple’s lineup down the road.
Separately, on the latest macOS Ventura 13.3 beta, Apple is experimenting with a new design for the Apple TV app that is closely in line with the rest of the Mac apps like News and Photos. The addition of the sidebar brings easier navigation for the most common TV app functions such as Apple TV+, content you purchased, and Watch Now. However, the enhanced user interface for the TV app is not implemented in the current beta, so we could see this new interface go live in the next beta or so.
