ChatGPT is finally available for iPhone – here's how to download it

AI has proven a pretty contentious topic in the world of art and design over the last couple of years. The rise of terrifyingly impressive text-to-image generators has been accompanied by the rise of questions around copyright and ethics. But it's not all about images – also big on the AI scene is ChatGPT, everyone's favourite AI-powered chatbot.

Until now, mobile users were limited to the web-based version of OpenAI's tool. But ChatGPT has now been released as an iOS app, making it easier than ever to get a scarily detailed answer to any question you think of. (Wondering what all the fuss is about?

From instant, ad-free answers to tailored advice on cooking, travel plans and even writing poetry, there's seemingly no end to the services ChatGPT can offer. OpenAI says  the app is another step towards its mission of "transforming state-of-the-art research into useful tools that empower people, while continuously making them more accessible."

To download ChatGPT, all you have to do is head to the Apple App Store, where the app is currently sitting in the number 1 spot. But there's a catch – right now, the ChatGPT app is only available in the US. OpenAI says it will expand to additional countries "in the coming weeks", and will also be heading to Android soon.
