Apples Deal With OpenAI

 Apple is about to make some major waves in the AI world. According to Mark Gurman from Bloomberg, Apple just teamed up with OpenAI, and they’re bringing some seriously cool AI magic to our iPhones with the iOS 18 update. 

They’re going to spill all the details at Apple’s annual WWDC on June 10, 2024. Our good old Siri is getting a major glow-up, and we’re not just talking about one, but *two* AI assistants joining the party. 

Even though Apple has this big deal with OpenAI, they’re still chatting with Google about possibly bringing their AI, Gemini, to the iPhone as a backup to ChatGPT. 

Gurman says we might not get all the nitty-gritty details next month because Apple and OpenAI are still working out some major deal points, like licensing and all that legal stuff. But the excitement is real.

And, according to an ex-OpenAI employee called Sam Altman, the big brain behind OpenAI, he is a “genius master-class strategist.” They said this deal with Apple is like a next-level move, even outside of their big partnership with Microsoft.

Also, OpenAI at their Spring Update event, showed off the new GPT-4o model. It’s basically a wizard of AI that can handle audio, vision, and text in real time. 

Plus, they dropped an exclusive ChatGPT app just for us Mac users. Some people saw it as a bit of a snub to Windows, despite Microsoft pouring billions into OpenAI.

Why did OpenAI go Mac-first?

They said it’s because most of their users are already on Mac. A recent report showed that the new GPT-4o model caused a huge spike in ChatGPT’s revenue and downloads on mobile, with iOS leading the charge.
