A new journaling app is coming to iPhones later this year, Apple said at its Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday.

The app, simply called Journal, is coming to iOS 17, the next version of Apple’s mobile software. The app uses on-device machine learning to create personalized suggestions to inspire writing. Suggestions are curated from information on your phone, such as photos, location, music and workouts.



In a look at the app given by Apple during the event, it provides the option to select a moment, like “morning visit, Ocean Beach,” and get writing. You can schedule notifications to remind you to write and let you know about new suggestions.

Journal is designed to keep entries private, with on-device processing, end-to-end encryption and the ability to lock the journal, according to Apple.
