It seems like Apple is approaching LLMs with a "the more, the merrier" attitude.

  • Post-keynote at WWDC24, key Apple executives confirmed that the company wants Google’s Gemini on iPhones.
  • In fact, the company wants all manners of AI systems powered by large language models.
  • For now, only OpenAI is an official partner with Apple, which brings ChatGPT to the Apple Intelligence system.

At WWDC24 today, Apple took the wraps off Apple Intelligence, the company’s new umbrella name for the various generative AI tools that will soon come to iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers. To make at least some of these AI features a reality, Apple is relying on a partnership with OpenAI, creators of ChatGPT.

However, weeks before the WWDC24 keynote, we heard rumors that Apple was also in talks with Google about bringing that company’s Gemini to iPhones. That didn’t appear to pan out, but that doesn’t mean the deal is off the table.
