Apple officially bringing ChatGPT to Siri and iOS 18

Apple and OpenAI have officially joined forces. After months of reports that all but confirmed the deal, the tech giant and the AI disruptor announced their partnership at WWDC on Monday.

As predicted from Apple insiders, OpenAI is bringing ChatGPT integration to Siri and its operating systems. With the Siri update, ChatGPT is integrated with different apps and features like Messages, Mail, and Compose. Examples include using compose to write a bedtime stories, or generating an image for the story. ChatGPT will be accessible for free, and chat and request information will not be logged. The ChatGPT integration is part of Apple Intelligence, its collection of AI technologies that are privacy-minded.

When ChatGPT is used, Apple will request permission from the user before sharing anything off device. ChatGPT will be coming to iOS 18, iPad OS 18, and MacOS Sequoia later this year.

The collaboration with OpenAI, whose models are the technical benchmark for the AI industry, is a strong strategic move for Apple as it competes with Google and Samsung. For OpenAI, the partnership puts its AI models directly in the hands of hundreds of millions of iPhone users.
