Rumors that Apple’s partnership with Meta could make the iPhone 16 a better AI phone

Apple may expand its new Apple Intelligence Artificial Intelligence (AI) features with models built by Meta, according to a Wall Street Journal report. The two tech giants are believed to be discussing the integration of Meta’s generative AI services into iOS 18 and next-generation iPhone models.

The WJ report cites conversations Apple has started with most of the big names in AI, including Google (Gemini), Anthropic (Claude), and OpenAI (ChatGPT). Plans for Apple Intelligence with free ChatGPT access and GPT-4o integration were mentioned in the flurry of Apple Intelligence news at WWDC this year. That’s clearly a non-exclusive arrangement if there’s a Meta collaboration going on.
