Apple just announced one major change that freedom-loving iPhone users are going to hate

It’s been over a decade since Steve Jobs died and left the Apple empire he built in the hands of Tim Cook.

The company has certainly continued to thrive financially but it’s also lost its way in a very important regard.

And now Apple just announced one major change that freedom-loving iPhone users are going to hate.

Apple announces major changes at WWDC

Every summer, Apple holds their Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in which software developers are given the first look at their next operating systems and upcoming changes. 

The conference marks an exciting moment for Apple fans as they finally see what the company has been working on behind closed doors.

This year, Apple focused a lot of their efforts on the rising trend of digital assistants powered by artificial intelligence (AI). 

In 2010, the company was one of the first to release a digital assistant on their phone with the debut of Siri. 

The voice-activated program generated answers using a variety of platforms. 

But this year, Apple announced that Siri is getting a major upgrade – and it’s one that will send a chill down the spine of anyone who cares about freedom and liberty.

Over the next year, Siri will begin to take hold in multiple apps, and use the ChatGPT virtual assistant built by the controversial, Skynet-esque AI developer OpenAI to somehow improve its service.

“Apple Intelligence” will change the way that people use their iPhones

Apple calls the new integration “Apple Intelligence.”

The company says it will help your phone create and analyze “language and images.” 

It will also bring smart actions to every app on your device. 

The new service will start to prioritize notifications based on what is most important to you. 

It will proofread anything that you need it to, and can generate custom emojis on demand. 

And it will make it easier for you to locate things on your device. 

Apple has previously dismissed the industry focus on AI in phones. 

But now, it seems that the company is diving headfirst into AI with this partnership.

OpenAI’s ChatGPT has quickly become one of the most widely used AI systems in the world. 

The company – which was originally founded as a nonprofit that would make AI openly available to all of humanity before money and power-hungry executives and investors decided it would be better if ruling class elites like themselves completely controlled the technology for profit – recently released ChatGPTo4, which it says promises to revolutionize the space. 

Normally, ChatGPT customers have to pay a premium for the latest software. 

Apple says that anyone with an iPhone gets access for free.

And while authoritarians who want to control what others think and do are applauding the move, freedom lovers are sounding the alarm.

Elon Musk says that he will “ban” the iPhone from his companies 

Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk – who was an early investor in OpenAI, but has since rebuked the company and began launching a competitor to it after the company chose to leave its nonprofit mission behind – took to his X platform on Monday to respond to Apple’s partnership with OpenAI.

Musk rightly pointed out that the partnership is a clear “security & privacy” risk for consumers.

“The truth is that handing your data over to digital superintelligence (that Apple themselves cannot even build or understand) at the operating system level is insane,” he wrote.

 Musk added that Apple is integrating a “woke nanny AI spyware” into their devices, and no one will be happy with it. 

And in a comment responding to Apple CEO Tim Cook, Musk said, “don’t want it,” and threatened to ban all Apple devices from entering his company buildings.

“If Apple integrates OpenAI at the OS level, then Apple devices will be banned at my companies. That is an unacceptable security violation,” he added in a later post.

Musk has long sounded the alarm about the dangers posed by AI, and advocated for AI to be decentralized and freely shared amongst all of humanity to lessen the potential downsides, which could completely derail human civilization. 

And Apple’s partnership with OpenAI is accelerating everything Elon Musk has been warning about.
