What’s new for Apple and the enterprise? – Computerworld

Private Cloud Compute

We looked at this in-depth here; enterprise pros will want to figure out the extent to which Apple’s provision of its own server-based, ultra-private LLM support in the cloud makes the service suitable for use across your company, but the promise of writing tools might help motivate a move to cross that line. It’s also interesting that Apple now lets developers use CoreML to run LLM models trained using most common frameworks (such as Mistral) in their apps on an Apple device. While not much is being made of that quite yet, it suggests new ways through which enterprise developers might be able to make their own business data highly actionable, while maintaining data protection guards.

I can’t help but think that Apple’s new cloud service could be the seed that grows into a full-fledged private enterprise compute cloud. 

App Intents and App Entities

Available in iOS, App Intents will let developers make specific content and actions within their apps available via Siri, Spotlight, Shortcuts, and Widgets. With Apple Intelligence, this means your app actions could be suggested to people when they make relevant requests from Siri, Shortcuts, or Spotlight. That’s good, because it brings your app to the surface, and evidently has potential in B2C and B2B communications. I also think this is a powerful step toward making Siri an agent-based assistant, capable of working on tasks over time, but that’s a story for another day. It does now have deeper and more integrated access to your apps than before.
