Microsoft’s Copilot AI chatbot app arrives on iOS

A few days ago, Microsoft released a standalone Android app for Microsoft Copilot, giving you a quick way to access the AI assistant. Turns out the iOS and iPad versions weren’t far behind, because they’re now available from Apple’s App Store. Just like in Copilot on desktop and other AI chatbots, such as ChatGPT, you can type in your question and wait for responses generated by artificial intelligence. In Copilot’s case, you’ll get responses spun by OpenAI’s GPT-4, the company’s latest large language model. The free version of ChatGPT, in comparison, is powered by the older ChatGPT-3.5, and you’ll need to pay for ChatGPT Plus to get access to the newer model.

In addition, Copilot on iOS has the capability to turn your words into images. That particular feature is powered by OpenAI’s DALL-E 3 text-to-image AI system, which the company previously said is “significantly better” at being able to grasp the final product you want to achieve with the text prompt you type in. DALL-E 3 was also designed to be better at rendering the elements its predecessors were having trouble with, such as human hands.

This is but the latest Copilot product Microsoft has released since it rebranded Bing Chat. The company also brought Copilot to Windows 10 and then to Windows 11, giving around a billion devices — based on the platforms’ user numbers — access to the AI chatbot. With these mobile rollouts, Microsoft is expanding Copilot’s reach even more, especially since the apps are free to use.
