The App Store has requested new requirements for apps integrated with ChatGPT!
The arrival of ChatGPT has promoted the use of generative artificial intelligence among users around the world, making it the fastest growing software in recent times. This impact has drawn the attention of other companies interested in integrating this technology into their services, but not before establish limitations and warn about the potential risks of its inappropriate use. But according to Apple, more could be done
According to a Wall Street Journal report recently, Apple has refused to update the BlueMail app in the App Store. this happened after it added generative AI features based on ChatGPT to write emails, unless the developer gives you an age restriction of 17+.
The App Store could update its policies for certain apps
The App Store team expressed concern about the risk that these AI-powered tools could generate inappropriate content for childrenand called for an increase in the age limit restriction to 17 or older, or to include content filtering.
On the developer side BlueMail Blix Incclaim that although the current restriction is four years or more, the application already has content filtering and that agreeing to Apple’s request could prevent it from attracting new potential users.
Currently, the 17 and over restrictions on the App Store include apps with offensive language, sexual content, or drug references, so Blix wards off unfair treatment. Besides Blix claims that other apps that promote capabilities similar to ChatGPT don’t have such strict age restrictions.. An Apple spokesman said that developers have the option to appeal to the Application Review Board and that he is investigating Blix’s complaint.
However, Microsoft’s recently updated version of Bing that includes the GPT Chat functionality has an age restriction of 17 years or older on the Apple App Store, but not on the version of the app on the Google Play Store.
Although this behavior suggests that it is a requirement that those with the bitten apple might be considering Regarding the concerns about their content, there is still no statement from Apple regarding a change in general policies for this type of application.
