iPhone and iPad users now have an official ChatGPT app they can download and use on their devices, giving full ChatGPT access directly from an app, without needing to use the web, any third party apps, wrappers, or tools.
And, because Apple Silicon Macs can run iPhone apps, this means that the Mac has access to an official ChatGPT app now as well, assuming you have an M1, M2, or better Mac anyway.
While anyone can use ChatGPT on any device via the website, a dedicated app is easier and preferable for some users. iPad and iPhone users have long been able to use ChatGPT from the web, but now with the dedicated ChatGPT app from OpenAI, you can have an even smoother experience on iPhone and iPad.
ChatGPT for iOS and iPadOS is free to download and use, but if you wish to have access to GPT 4 and other advanced features, you will need to pay OpenAI for a subscription to access those capabilities.
Just launch ChatGPT, log in with a free OpenAI account, and away you go. You can immediately start using ChatGPT directly on your device, with any kind of query or question you come up with. To get started, try one of the following type of queries for ChatGPT:
What can you do for me?
