Apple reportedly rejected an AI partnership with Meta due to privacy concerns.

Who’s in the running to become Apple’s next AI partner? According to Bloomberg, it’s not Meta.

In response to a Wall Street Journal report about Apple considering AI integrations with Meta, Google, Anthropic, and Perplexity AI, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that Cupertino will not add Meta’s Llama chatbot to iOS.

Apple held brief discussions with Meta in March but didn’t reach a formal agreement, as Apple believed Meta’s privacy practices were not “stringent enough,” according to Gurman. The idea was shelved “months ago,” and “Apple has no active plans to integrate Llama.”

While launching Apple Intelligence at WWDC, Apple announced OpenAI’s ChatGPT as its first AI partner. However, Craig Federighi, Apple’s SVP of Software Engineering, mentioned that the company would be open to integrating other large language models (LLMs) into its software.

This could include Google’s Gemini. At WWDC, Federighi said Apple “may look forward to doing integrations with different models like Google Gemini in the future,” 9to5Mac reports.
