  • According to a reliable source, Apple is in discussions with OpenAI about bringing ChatGPT power to iOS 18.
  • Previously, Apple was in elevated talks with Google about using Gemini in iOS.
  • It’s possible the upcoming version of iOS could have features from both companies.

Over the past year, AI has been all the rage. The two biggest smartphone releases of the past six months — the Pixel 8 series and the Galaxy S24 series — heavily focused on the AI power of the phones. Notably, almost all that AI is powered by Google’s Gemini, even on the Samsung phones.

Previously, we had heard that Apple was also in talks with Google about bringing Gemini-based features to iOS 18, the next version of the operating system. This would make sense, as Google has already done this for Samsung. Now, though, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says that Apple is in talks with OpenAI about bringing ChatGPT-powered features to iOS. It’s possible, therefore, that iOS 18 could feature AI tricks powered by both Gemini and ChatGPT.
