According to Bloomberg, Apple is creating its own AI-powered chatbot, which some company engineers are calling Apple GPT. The company reportedly has no firm plans yet for when to bring the technology to the public.

Apple’s chatbot uses its own large language model (LLM) framework called Ajax, which runs on Google Cloud and is built with Google JAX, designed to accelerate machine learning research. Close sources say that several teams are working on the project.

Tech giants like Meta, Microsoft, and Google have been quick to bring their generative AI products to businesses and the general public. Meanwhile, Apple has been conspicuous by its absence. Since Apple banned its employees from using ChatGPT, the company’s engineers use the company’s own Ajax-enabled chatbot.

In a recent interview with Good Morning America, Apple CEO Tim Cook said artificial intelligence is something Apple is looking at closely. Cook also raised concerns about AI products in May, noting that there are several issues that need to be addressed.

While Apple’s AI plans remain unclear, sources tell Bloomberg that Apple wants to make a “significant AI-related announcement” next year.
