Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, recently emphasized the company’s commitment to artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), stating that these technologies are “essentially integrated into every product” they produce. This statement comes amidst speculations regarding Apple’s AI strategies, especially when competitors have been vocal about their AI advancements.

While Apple has been relatively quiet about its AI endeavors in public events, such as the Worldwide Developers Conference, Cook clarified that the company has been delving into AI for several years. He highlighted that Apple’s dedication to AI and ML is evident in the design and functionality of its products.

The recent financial results from Apple indicated a dip in sales for many of its products. However, the growth of its services division somewhat balanced this decline. Cook attributed part of the increased spending on research and development to the company’s focus on AI. He mentioned in an interview with CNBC, “We’ve been researching AI and machine learning, including generative AI, for years.”

Cook further emphasized Apple’s ongoing commitment to innovate and responsibly advance its products using AI and ML to enhance user experiences. He stated, “We’re investing significantly, and it’s evident in our R&D expenditure.”
