Apple unveils AI integration, ChatGPT partnership

What happened

Apple unveiled upcoming software changes at its Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday, including the ability to schedule text messages, send texts via satellite when necessary, and record and transcribe calls from the phone app. Most notably, Apple is adding AI capabilities to a bulked-up Siri and other apps, in partnership with OpenAI’s ChatGPT. It is dubbing its version of generative AI “Apple Intelligence.”

“My big thought” sitting through Apple’s presentation was: “Are these really cutting-edge, useful tools?” Joanna Stern said in The Wall Street Journal. “Or is Apple just stuffing in AI to catch up to current front-runners Microsoft and Google, and sell us more iPhones to boot? Spoiler: It’s a bit of both.”
