ChatGPT is about to play a huge role in the next generation of Apple products.

When Apple rolls out the iPhone 16s they will be equipped with incredible AI features.

One feature would be a ChatGPT-powered chatbot.

To create this, Apple needs to partner up with an AI company, and OpenAI seems to be the chosen one.

It’s no secret that Apple has been in talks with OpenAI.

Ahead of the upcoming iOS18 update, details of what the public can expect have been leaked.

And it’s clear the company is giving Siri a huge, AI-powered overhaul.

Apple is serious about Artificial Intelligence at the moment, even reportedly scrapping its Apple Car plans to focus on AI instead.

Alongside a new design and button, Apple plans to incorporate groundbreaking AI features into the next generation of iPhones.

The company is making privacy a top priority in its AI implementation too.

Perhaps to make up for the time millions of iPhone users had a mysterious new privacy setting automatically switched on.

New iPhones will feature powerful chips to handle these AI features being processed on-device as much as possible, ensuring better security and privacy.

This means, however, that older iPhones might not be able to support these new features as well or at all.

One major way that the tech giant will implement AI is through a chatbot, which will basically be a new and improved Siri.

By incorporating a platform like ChatGPT, iPhone users will be able to ask Siri a wider range of questions and get more accurate and personalized feedback.

For this, Apple has been looking to team up with either Google or OpenAI, but, according to Bloomberg, it looks like OpenAI is about to close the deal.

If its deal with OpenAI happens, the iPhone 16 will come equipped with AI capabilities as well as an AI-powered chatbot.

Plus, because it would be a partnership, OpenAI would remain responsible for any issues that might occur with the bot.
