OpenAI, the creator of the renowned AI chatbot, ChatGPT, announced on Thursday its plans to launch a ChatGPT app for Apple’s iOS platform. The application will be freely available for use and is designed to synchronize user history across multiple devices, providing a seamless experience1.
The company further elaborated on the exclusive benefits for ChatGPT Plus subscribers, which include access to the capabilities of GPT-4, a highly advanced AI model that improves upon the technology that powers the highly acclaimed ChatGPT. Subscribers also enjoy early access to new features and improved response times, all available on the iOS platform23.
OpenAI initially introduced the subscription model for its AI chatbot, termed ChatGPT Plus, in February, pricing it at $20 per month4.
OpenAI has started the deployment of the ChatGPT app for iOS users in the United States, with plans to extend its availability to other countries in the subsequent weeks. This move marks a significant step in the ongoing competition for dominance in the AI technology landscape, a contest that began in earnest last year with the release of ChatGPT and has seen major tech corporations, including Alphabet Inc. and Meta, promoting their respective AI technologies5.
