Baidu and Apple join forces to incorporate AI in iPhones for Chinese market

The American technology company Apple has announced plans to integrate technology from artificial intelligence (AI) provided by the Chinese tech giant Baidu into its upcoming devices aimed at the Asian giant’s market. This collaboration will focus on the iPhone16, as well as updates to the Mac operating system and iOS18. According to Chinastarmarket media, Apple chose Baidu over other options, including Alibaba, due to Baidu’s popularity as the most popular search engine in China where Google is blocked.

Outside of China, Apple devices will continue to have AI applications developed in-house by the Cupertino company. However, regulatory compliance in China prompted Apple to choose a local AI service provider for devices sold in the country. This was a goal that the company couldn’t achieve in the short term. After the publication of this information, Baidu’s shares rose on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, where it is listed.

Baidu is not alone in offering AI-based services in China; several technology giants like Tencent and Alibaba have also presented such services. However, concerns have been raised about the application of this technology in the country due to strict censorship imposed by authorities. To address these concerns, additional regulations have been approved to govern generative AI services, ensuring compliance with information security, protection of personal data and adherence to social values and ethics. These regulations aim to prevent content that threatens national security or social stability from being generated using AI technologies.
