Meta considers integrating its AI model with iPhone

(MENAFN) In a recent report published on Sunday, a prominent US-based newspaper revealed that Meta Platforms, the parent company of Facebook, is deliberating on integrating its generative artificial intelligence (AI) model with the newly unveiled artificial intelligence system for Iphone devices by Apple. This potential collaboration highlights a significant strategic move as Apple aims to incorporate advanced AI technologies from various companies into its devices. Such integration comes at a time when Apple is reportedly exploring partnerships not only with Meta but also with Google, a subsidiary of Alphabet, with whom it has an ongoing collaboration in search tools.

Apple's strategy to enhance its AI capabilities extends beyond its traditional partners. The tech giant is expected to initiate discussions with several AI companies globally, including regions where certain AI technologies face restrictions. For instance, in China, where GPT chat developed by Microsoft-backed OpenAI is banned, Apple is looking into other potential AI partnerships. Among the companies in talks with Apple is the emerging AI company Anthropic, known for its innovative generative AI models. These discussions, although still in the preliminary stages and potentially subject to change, signify Apple's commitment to expanding its AI ecosystem.

Despite the speculative nature of these negotiations, the newspaper reported that neither Apple, Meta, nor Anthropic have provided comments on these discussions outside business hours. The outcome of these talks remains uncertain, with the possibility that some negotiations may not come to fruition. However, successful deals could significantly enhance the distribution and accessibility of AI products for the involved companies.

While the financial implications of these potential partnerships are not yet clear, the discussions reportedly involve AI companies offering premium subscriptions to their services through Apple's AI platform. This model could provide a lucrative revenue stream for AI developers while enhancing the functionality and appeal of Apple's AI offerings.

In addition to these high-profile talks, another AI startup, Perplexity, which operates an AI-driven search engine, is also in discussions with Apple. This collaboration could further Apple's goal of integrating sophisticated generative AI models into its technology suite. Earlier this month, Apple announced its much-anticipated AI strategy, detailing plans to incorporate its new AI technology into various applications, including Siri, and to add the Chat GPT system to its devices. These advancements signal a significant evolution in Apple's approach to artificial intelligence, aiming to provide users with more intuitive and powerful AI-driven functionalities across its product range.
