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

Apple has announced that it will integrate technology from artificial intelligence (AI) from Chinese technology giant Baidu into its upcoming devices aimed at the Asian giant’s market. The collaboration between the two companies will focus on the iPhone16, as well as updates to the Mac operating system and iOS18. Apple selected Baidu over other options, including Alibaba, due to Baidu’s popularity as the most popular search engine in China where Google is blocked.

The need for regulatory compliance in China prompted Apple to choose a local AI service provider for devices sold in the country. However, outside of China, Apple devices will continue to have AI applications developed in-house by the Cupertino company. After the publication of this information, Baidu’s shares rose on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, where it is listed.

Several technology giants like Baidu, Tencent, and Alibaba have presented AI-based services in China. However, concerns have been raised about the application of this technology in the country due to the strict censorship imposed by the authorities. 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 the generation of content that threatens national security or social stability.
