ChatGPT in Siri

Apple announced a significant partnership with OpenAI to integrate ChatGPT into various experiences within iOS, iPadOS, and macOS operation systems at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2024). This new integration will allow users to access ChatGPT’s capabilities, including image and document understanding, without any need to switch between different tools.

The integration of  ChatGPT will significantly enhance Siri’s capabilities in several ways, from now on Siri will be able to tap into ChatGPT’s intelligence to provide more detailed and accurate responses to user queries. 

Some of the other developments include:

Permissions: Users will be asked for permission before any questions, documents, or photos are shared by Siri to ChatGPT. Siri will present the answers to the users only after receiving the consent.

Privacy: Privacy measures are maintained with practices like not storing requests by OpenAI and obscuring users’ IP addresses. Users can choose to connect their ChatGPT accounts while ensuring their data preferences according to ChatGPT’s policies.

GPT-4o: The ChatGPT integration powered by GPT-4o will be available on iOS, iPadOS, and macOS later this year. Users will be able to access it for free without creating an account, and ChatGPT subscribers can connect their accounts and access premium features directly through these platforms.

While these features are being talk of the town there are certain limitations to what Siri can do with ChatGPT. Siri will use its model unless it feels like ChatGPT would be more useful, and it will ask for permission before sending any questions, documents, or photos to  ChatGPT for processing.

Addressing the privacy concerns OpenAI has officially posted that privacy protections are built into the system while accessing ChatGPT within Siri and Writing Tools. It has clarified that requests made by users are not stored by OpenAi and users’ IP addresses are obscured.
