OpenAI unveils its ChatGPT app on iOS, but not for everyone!

Have you always dreamed of being able to chat with your favorite language model on your ? Good news, is making your wish come true. The application for iOS is finally here, but beware, it is not yet available to everyone.

OpenAI giant deploys ChatGPT on iOS: a global conquest in the making?

The popularity of ChatGPT has been undeniable since the previous year. This has prompted OpenAI to redouble its efforts to develop an application for mobile devices. Of course, it is possible to interact with the chatbot via the web, but insiders know that the native experience will always be preferred by users. So, after several months of hard work, they finally launched the ChatGPT app for iOS. However, the bad news, as the saying goes, is that “all good things must come to an end”: this app is not yet available worldwide.

According to OpenAI: “Since the launch of ChatGPT, we've heard users express their desire to use ChatGPT on their mobile. Today, we are launching the ChatGPT app for iOS.” For now, this ChatGPT app for iOS can only be downloaded in the United States. However, it is expected to expand to other countries soon. If you live in the US, you can already download it for free from the App Store.

A measured deployment: quality before quantity

OpenAI chose to do an initial launch in the United States so they could gather feedback and opinions from American users. Their goal? To improve the app before launching it in other regions. “We started with a US launch and plan to expand to other countries in the coming weeks. We look forward to seeing how you use the app. By gathering user feedback, we are committed to continually improving the functionality and security of ChatGPT.”

ChatGPT for iOS: what are the superpowers of this app?

Even if we are still in the early stages, the features of this first version are rich enough to make the most of ChatGPT from your iPhone. OpenAI presents them as follows:

  • Instant answers: just like the browser version, you can get multiple instant answers after entering your command.
  • Tip: need information on topics like cooking, travel or message suggestions for your private conversations? The ChatGPT app for iOS offers them to you in record time.
  • Creative inspiration: don't know what to get a loved one for a special occasion? ChatGPT flies to your rescue.
  • Professional intervention: with ChatGPT, you can ask for technical assistance on various topics or even create summaries of lengthy articles.
  • Learning: the chatbot has the ability to become your learning guide on various subjects and disciplines. For example, languages or modern history.

Siri vs ChatGPT: The new iOS champion

Even though this app has just been launched, many iOS users are already using ChatGPT via shortcuts. Some curious people didn't waste any time and quickly replaced Siri with the chatbot. If we're honest, OpenAI's tool has proven to be far more useful than 's personal assistant.
