Tap the icon and you’ll quickly be told that the nearest tree is probably a European ash. Very handy, albeit within a relatively small number of spheres.

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge So Apple has restricted the use of OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Microsoft’s Copilot, The Wall Street Journal reports. ChatGPT has been on the ban list for months, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman adds. It’s not just Apple, but also Samsung and Verizon in the tech world and a who’s who of banks (Bank of America, Citi, Deutsche Bank, Goldman, Wells Fargo, and JPMorgan). This is because of the possibility of confidential data escaping; in any event, ChatGPT’s privacy policy explicitly says your prompts can be used to train its models unless you opt out. The fear of leaks isn’t unfounded: in March, a bug in ChatGPT revealed data from other users. Is there a world where…

Macworld Apple’s AirTag object tracker helps users find their keys, pet, or even vehicle in the supermarket car park by using the tracking device and the expanded Apple Find My network on their iPhone. Priced at $29/£29 each for one, or $99/£99 for four, AirTags have proved incredibly popular, but there are other similarly capable products available—some of which beat Apple’s AirTags in certain forms and functions?
