OpenAI Launches iOS App for ChatGPT

Ivana Shteriova
OpenAI, the Microsoft-backed company behind ChatGPT, launched a free ChatGPT iOS app that will enable Apple iPhone and iPad users to access the popular chatbot on the go. The app is currently rolling out in the US but will expand to more countries in the following weeks.

With the open-source speech-recognition system Whisper integration, the iOS ChatGPT app can sync history across devices and support voice input. Similar to the desktop version of ChatGPT, users can interact with the app for various purposes. The app can answer questions, offer tailored advice, suggest gift ideas, write poems, create travel itineraries, and more.

ChatGPT Plus users can expect faster response times, exclusive access to GPT-4 features, and early access to new capabilities from the convenience of their iPhone or iPad. Some Apple users might decide to use ChatGPT as their main voice assistant due to complaints that Apple’s proprietary voice assistant Siri lags in AI progress.

The lack of an official ChatGPT app until now has led to a flood of fake AI apps on Apple’s App Store that claim to offer ChatGPT mobile access. These apps have reportedly earned millions by tricking users into paying pricey subscriptions, and Apple is under fire for not removing them and allowing them to profit from false advertising. With the launch of an official ChatGPT app, users can safely (and for free) use the chatbot on their iPhones and iPads.

The introduction of ChatGPT on handheld iOS devices might disrupt Google’s influence on Apple as it currently acts as the default search engine for Safari, Apple’s proprietary web browser.

OpenAI and Microsoft started an AI revolution with the launch of the now ultra-popular chatbot in late November of last year. OpenAI introduced a GPT-4 update to the large language model in March of this year. The company says GPT-4 can execute more complex tasks, provide better results, and has fewer flaws.

OpenAI denies working on GPT-5, following an open letter signed by Elon Musk and other high-profile figures, demanding Big Tech for a six-month-long AI development pause. But the company promised a ChatGPT app for Android users “soon.”
