Apple will delay the launch of three new artificial intelligence features in Europe. That's because European Union competition rules require the company to ensure that competitors' products and services can work with its devices.

These features will launch in the US this fall, but not with will appear in Europe by 2025. The Guardian writes about it.

On Friday, the company said that three functions – phone mirroring, improved SharePlay screen sharing and Apple Intelligence – won't be available to EU users this year due to regulatory uncertainty surrounding the EU's Digital Markets Act (DMA).

Apple has said EU rules will put it at risk security of your devices – an argument she has made before, and to which EU officials responded with a refusal.

In particular, we are concerned that the DMA's interoperability requirements could cause us to compromise the integrity of our products in a way that would compromise user privacy and data security,
– Apple said in an email.

In a statement to Bloomberg, the European Commission said Apple would be welcome in the EU as long as it abides by its laws.

Earlier this month at the annual conference for developers the company debuted with Apple Intelligence – a suite of artificial intelligence features that combine ChatGPT and Siri to search the web and generate images and text.

When the next version of Apple's mobile operating system is released later this year, assistive features will also be able to look through email, texts and photos on the phone to find specific information based on user cues.

The company said the features < strong>will be available on iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, as well as on iPad and Mac with the M1 chipand later versions. iPhone mirroring on MacOS Sequoia allows you to view and interact with your phone screen on Mac computers.

“We are committed to working with the European Commission to find a solution that would allow us to provide these features to our customers with the EU without compromising their security”, – Apple said in a statement.

Apple has repeatedly promised that its new AI features will be private. In early June, CEO Tim Cook promised that these features “will be based on your personal context, like your routine, your relationships, your communications, and more.”
