The integration will also extend to iPadOS and MacOS, offering users advanced AI functionalities across multiple devices. This will position Apple to better compete with tech giants like Google and Samsung, offering a robust AI experience to its users.

Siri gains advanced AI functionalities

The integration of ChatGPT in Siri increases user interactions and the capability of Siri in different applications. Users can leverage on Siri to get recipe ideas from a list of ingredients, getting backyard landscaping tips with GPT-4o’s image recognition, and creating bedtime stories using the Compose feature. This integration brings ChatGPT’s advanced natural language and image recognition capabilities to Apple users, thus enhancing the usability of AI tools in real-life situations.

This partnership marks a significant milestone for both Apple and OpenAI. In the case of Apple, integrating ChatGPT into Siri supports the company’s objective of improving its AI functions and providing a superior product. This is expected to consolidate Apple’s market dominance as other competitors have also been enhancing their AI capabilities.

For OpenAI, this partnership will help its AI models to be available to hundreds of millions of iPhone users globally. This large following offers OpenAI a great platform to present its product and gain a huge number of users.

Privacy and accessibility prioritized

Another key component of this integration is the issue of privacy and Apple’s adherence to it. The company has reassured users that ChatGPT will be available for free, and the conversation or request history will not be recorded. This approach is in line with the company’s policy of prioritizing the privacy of the users and providing clear information on how their data is processed.

According to Apple, the company does not transfer any data without the user’s permission, which is a strategy to empower the users.

Elon Musk has criticized the partnership, stating, “If Apple integrates OpenAI at the OS level, then Apple devices will be banned at my companies. That is an unacceptable security violation. And visitors will have to check their Apple devices at the door, where they will be stored in a Faraday cage.”

Tech giants unveil AI advancements

Microsoft overtook Apple in January to become the world’s biggest company by market capitalization, and this year, Apple has underperformed in other technology stocks. Last week, Nvidia temporarily surpassed Apple and became the second most valuable company in the world.
