Apple surprised with new features for iPhone, iPad and Mac powered by OpenAI’s artificial intelligence, known for ChatGPT. This collaboration would mark the beginning of a broader strategy by Apple to incorporate third-party AI technologies such as Google.

Thus, Siri would not only offer answers based on ChatGPT, but also on Gemini and other AIs from external companies.

What the partnership between Apple and Google would look like

At Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference 2024, the company unveiled a series of new features for its operating systems powered by OpenAI’s artificial intelligence, the same as ChatGPT.

This dynamic of using third-party artificial intelligence is something that Apple is reportedly planning to expand. According to a report shared by Bloomberg, the company led by Tim Cook would like to partner with Google to gain access to Gemini. The partnership would be expected to be ready by the end of 2024.

In this way, when a user interacts with Siri, they would have responses from ChatGPT, Gemini and more artificial intelligences from other companies outside Apple.

The same report adds that Apple would seek to partner with Anthropic, Baidu and Alibaba in the same way it did with OpenAI and plans to do so with Google.

According to Wired, Craig Federighi, who is Apple’s senior vice president, the company would be looking to establish contracts with other large technology companies focused on the development of AI systems.

“People will have a preference for certain models that they want to use, maybe one that’s great for creative writing or one that’s especially useful for coding. We want to make it easy for users to have access to the tool of their choice. It is possible that we will make additions with different algorithms such as Google Gemini in the future,” Federighi reportedly said.

What Apple Intelligence would look like with Google, OpenAI, and more

The set of new features powered by artificial intelligence is called Apple Intelligence. It is a fact that OpenAI will be part of this system.

If Google and other companies were included, users, for example, would have a Siri with several artificial intelligences capable of answering queries with several databases.

For example, if someone asks Siri about the weather, this person will have an answer based on information from Google, OpenAI, and more sources.

How much Apple pays OpenAI to use ChatGPT

Apple will use ChatGPT for various iOS 18 features such as writing correction, summaries, smart email inboxes, among others. Some people would believe that Apple is paying OpenAI millions of dollars to use its AI. According to the same report, it seems not.

Apple believes that the visibility that OpenAI will obtain from being present on hundreds of millions of the company’s devices has a value comparable to or greater than an economic payment.

In addition, it is rumored that Apple would seek the same agreement with Google and the rest of the companies mentioned above.

But it might be unlikely that Google would be limited by Apple’s recognition alone and if it sought financial compensation.
