Apple has generative AI plans, too.
Within an article examining the shortfalls of AI voice helpers over the last few years, like Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri, the New York Times has a note about Apple’s internal tech demos:

Of course, not everyone’s sure they want these freestyling AI bots taking control of their smart home devices.
