iOS 18 Safari browsing assistant

An X user named Nicolás Álvarez shared a post saying that iOS 18 may feature a Safari browsing assistant. Later MacRumors contributor Aaron also confirmed via X post that the code for this feature exists in Apple's backend for iOS 18.  Álvarez further highlighted that this new Safari feature may utilise iCloud Private Relay's infrastructure which works as Apple's private browser where users' IP addresses can not be tracked or what websites they are visiting. Additionally, it was further revealed that the Safari browsing assistant may require an iCloud+ subscription if announced. However, Apple already supports a third-party AI-based browser called Arc Search which allows users to summarize web pages. Now, this new generative AI feature to Safari may boost the company AI's goals significantly.
