Baidu will provide AI functions for Apple’s China version devices

According to the Science and Technology Innovation Board Daily, the AI ​​functions on the iPhone 16, Mac system and iOS 18 that Apple will release this year will be provided by Baidu.

Apple had earlier negotiated with Alibaba and another large domestic model company, and finally decided that Baidu would provide this service.

The AI ​​functions of the National Bank version of the device are handed over to domestic large models, mainly for compliance needs, but the AI ​​functions on non-National Bank version of Apple devices all come from Apple's own large models.

Mark Guman also talked about the reasons why Apple cooperates with third-party companies to develop generative AI not long ago. Choosing Baidu as an AI function service provider may be because this move "can help Apple integrate artificial intelligence faster." In addition, Apple can use local Chinese suppliers such as Baidu to localize its technology instead of dealing with regulators.
