NIXsolutions: ChatGPT and Siri Integration Announced at WWDC 2024

At this week’s WWDC 2024, it was confirmed that OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot will be integrated with Apple’s Siri voice interface. Apple has indicated that ChatGPT will not be the only large language model (LLM) supported; if necessary, Apple could implement integration with other LLMs, such as Google Gemini.


Apple’s Senior Vice President, Craig Federighi, highlighted this in an interview following the opening of WWDC 2024, as noted by TechCrunch. “In the future, we expect integration with other models, including Google Gemini, for example,” Federighi explained. While he did not make any official announcements, he emphasized that this is the direction Apple is moving toward.

User Access and Security

iOS 18 users will have access to ChatGPT without requiring separate payment or authorization in OpenAI services. The secure transfer of data will be managed transparently. Company representatives have explained that before switching to using OpenAI services, Apple users will receive a clarifying question from Siri to confirm this action. Additionally, if any information needs to be transferred to the OpenAI infrastructure, users will need to confirm this step through Siri, notes NIXsolutions.

This integration has raised concerns, for example from Elon Musk, who has expressed intentions to prohibit employees of his companies from using Apple devices that support iOS 18. Musk believes that the transfer of information through the Apple platform to OpenAI poses significant security risks.
