Apple’s note-taking apps are set to become significantly smarter. The upcoming iOS 18 will feature real-time audio-to-text transcription and intelligent annotation of text notes based on advanced artificial intelligence technology. The AI assistant will be able to recognize speech in audio recordings and highlight key points in texts.

Enhanced Audio Transcription and Annotation

According to Appleinsider, Apple is developing improved audio transcription capabilities and the generation of short annotations based on recorded speech in real time. This will affect apps like Notes and Voice Memos, as well as some other applications. Although there’s no indication that the iPhone will soon convert audio messages in instant messengers to text, these developments mark a significant step forward. Sources indicate that Apple has already tested these functionalities in preview versions of apps set to be released with iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS 15 updates later this year.

Specifically, the Voice Memos application will now include the ability to instantly transcribe audio recordings. A text transcript of the speech will be displayed in the center of the app interface, replacing the traditional graphical representation of the audio. Users will simply need to click a special button to start transcription.

Similarly, the Notes application will incorporate a tool for speech transcription, adds NIX Solutions. Alongside this, Notes will feature the ability to automatically create short text annotations based on recorded audio. These AI-generated notes will highlight the key points of the recording, providing users with a condensed text summary without needing to listen to the entire audio recording.

Boosting Productivity with AI Integration

Apple claims that the combination of advanced audio processing, speech transcription, and annotation generation will transform the Notes application into a powerful tool for structuring various types of information. These new features will greatly enhance productivity for students, journalists, writers, and more. Users can easily record lectures, interviews, ideas, and more, then receive ready-made transcripts and summaries without the need for manual transcription and processing. Additionally, to minimize transcription errors and ensure important data is not lost, the original audio recordings will be saved in Notes alongside the generated text.

We’ll keep you updated on further developments as iOS 18 and its exciting features roll out. Stay tuned for more information on how these advancements will improve your daily note-taking and audio recording experience.
