Microsoft is concerned that OpenAI is helping Apple improve Siri

According to foreign media The Information, contact between Apple and OpenAI began in mid-2023, and Microsoft is worried about the cooperation between the two companies.

According to reports, Apple employees on the machine learning team met with Altman and other members of OpenAI around last year’s WWDC. And the two companies subsequently reached an agreement to allow Apple employees to access the OpenAI API for internal testing.

People familiar with the matter said that Apple is focusing on using OpenAI technology to let Siri answer more complex questions and even turn it into a chatbot. OpenAI showed Apple how Siri can become more responsive, more natural, and even provide real-time translation using its API.

The reason why Microsoft is worried about the cooperation between the two companies is that Microsoft also has an agreement with OpenAI. OpenAI provides the technology behind Microsoft Copilot, and Microsoft allows OpenAI to use its data center to provide support for ChatGPT.

Because of the existence of this agreement, on the one hand, Microsoft may end up making more money from the cooperation between Apple and OpenAI. But at the same time, Apple's artificial intelligence capabilities will directly compete with Microsoft.
