OpenAI just now made available the official ChatGPT app for iPhone. Due to artificial intelligence, the tool has gained a reputation for responding to user requests and resolving problems of all complexity levels. Apple, however, forbids the use of such tools by its staff. The business stated in an internal memo that generative AIs cannot be utilized for employment.
ChatGPT is no longer available to Apple workers.
This memo, which The Wall Street Journal was able to access, outlines the company’s worries about these AI platforms gathering sensitive employee data. Apple has prohibited its staff from using Microsoft-owned GitHub’s Copilot in addition to ChatGPT. Developers can automate the writing of code with Copilot.
Microsoft also supports ChatGPT, which transmits information to programmers in order for them to keep enhancing the AI models utilized by the platform. According to the Wall Street Journal, a flaw in March gave individuals access to other ChatGPT users’ chat histories. Following this occurrence, ChatGPT developed a feature that allows users to disable their chat history and stop helping to train the AI model.
However, there is no way to guarantee that the codes Apple’s engineers enter won’t end up leaking to someone else or even being used by the developers of these apps if they use these platforms. Since staff members can utilize ChatGPT to create emails, for example, the same holds true for other sensitive material.

However, ChatGPT and other generative AIs are not only prohibited by Apple for its employees. The usage of such platforms has also been banned by JPMorgan Chase and Verizon. According to WSJ sources, Amazon has instructed its developers to utilise its own internal AI tool rather than external ones. Apple has reportedly been developing its own AI model as well, according to the report.
Siri may soon receive AI-based functionality.
John Giannandrea, a former Google employee who now leads Apple’s new AI initiative, was hired in 2018. Apple CEO Tim Cook recently praised the promise of generative AI on a call with investors. Cook added that due of the way current technology functions, there are “issues that need to be sorted.”
