Apple has resumed negotiations on the use of artificial intelligence technologies from third-party developers on the iPhone.

OpenAI and Apple have begun discussing the terms of a possible deal and how the features will be integrated into iOS 18, the next operating system for the iPhone. The move marks a resumption of dialogue between the companies, which stalled after Apple agreed to a deal with OpenAI earlier this year, Bloomberg reports, citing sources.

Apple is also continuing negotiations with Alphabet to license the Gemini chatbot. Apple has yet to make a final decision on partners, and there is no guarantee that a deal will be made. It's possible that the company will eventually reach a deal with both OpenAI and Google, or choose a different vendor altogether.

As NV Techno wrote, the next operating system for the iPhone will include several new functions based on artificial intelligence. Some of these functions will be implemented directly by Apple. It is assumed that data processing will take place on the device itself without the involvement of cloud storage. At the same time, the company is also looking for partners to build a chatbot feature similar to OpenAI's ChatGPT. It was reported that in addition to OpenAI and Google, the Anthropic company participated in the negotiations on this issue.
