Apple might be working with OpenAI to bring AI to iOS 18


It is largely expected that iOS 18 will see Apple officially introduce AI capabilities to its platform. But the question is, will this AI be developed by Apple, or will they team up with someone who already has the existing infrastructure? Turns out it could be the latter as the latest reports claim that Apple and OpenAI might have settled on a deal.

According to a report from The Information (paywall), Apple and OpenAI have reached an agreement where OpenAI will provide ChatGPT’s services to Apple for iOS 18. This is not the first time we’re hearing about this. A couple of months ago, there were reports suggesting that Apple was in talks with the likes of Google and OpenAI.

It is expected that the use of ChatGPT could help with Siri, where it could be used to generate some actually useful responses. Siri right now largely points users towards search engines for results, which is honestly kind of useless. By implementing generative AI like ChatGPT, this should result in Siri giving users better responses.

While we would have liked to see Apple create their own AI models, perhaps using something more established first could be a better idea. Apple hasn’t had the best track record when it comes to launching their own services. Siri and Apple Maps come to mind. So if using a third-party service, at least initially, will yield better results, we’re all for it.
