According to a report from Chinastarmarket media, Apple has announced its plans to integrate the artificial intelligence (AI) technology of Chinese technology giant Baidu into its upcoming devices for the Asian market. The collaboration between the two companies will focus on iPhone16 as well as updates to the Mac operating system and iOS18.

Apple chose Baidu over other options, including Alibaba, because of Baidu’s popularity as the most popular search engine in China where Google is blocked. In order to comply with regulations in China, Apple had to select a local AI service provider for devices sold in the country. This was a goal that the company could not achieve in the short term.

Outside of China, Apple devices will continue to have AI applications developed by the Cupertino company. Following the release of this information, Baidu’s shares rose on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, where it is listed.

Several tech giants such as Baidu, Tencent and Alibaba have introduced AI-based services in China. However, concerns have been raised regarding the implementation of this technology due to strict censorship imposed by authorities. Additional regulations have been approved to regulate generative artificial intelligence services, ensuring compliance with information security, protection of personal data and respect for social values and ethics. These regulations are intended to prevent the generation of content that threatens national security or social stability.
