Within the application data security information, OpenAI has stressed that the ChatGPT Android application does not share user data with third parties.

ChatGPT and future AI developments from Apple and Google

Over 10.6k users of ChatGPT on the App Store gave it an average of 4.4 out of five stars. The top charts show that it is one of the top five productivity apps for iPhone.
It might be one of the most popular AI-powered chatbots right now. But what happens when Apple develops a generative AI that integrates with its operating system?
Will people still download apps like ChatGPT if effective AI is built into their devices at launch? It will likely depend on which company has the most reliable and accurate AI tool.
