Microsoft has quietly introduced its Copilot app on the Apple App Store, catering to both iPhone and iPad users. This move follows the recent launch of the standalone Copilot app on the Android platform. Copilot leverages the power of the cutting-edge GPT-4 and DALL-E 3, making it a formidable AI-powered chatbot.
Formerly known as Bing Chat, Copilot offers a range of functionalities, allowing users to generate text, receive answers to queries, summarize text, and even compose essays or poems. One of its notable features is the integration of the DALL-E 3 image generator, enabling users to create images seamlessly using AI.
Additionally, the app grants users complimentary access to the latest GPT-4 large language model developed by OpenAI. However, it appears that users are limited to receive up to 30 responses at a time, and the activation of GPT-4 within the app is a prerequisite.
Despite its notable features, the iOS version of Copilot currently lacks a chat history saving function, preventing users from revisiting recent interactions. This stands in contrast to the ChatGPT platform, which offers such a feature. Nevertheless, Copilot’s unique advantage lies in providing free access to GPT-4, a service for which users would have to pay on ChatGPT. Similar to its Android counterpart, Copilot on iOS doesn’t mandate user sign-ins, although signing in does unlock access to longer chat sessions.
Users have the flexibility to engage with Copilot using voice commands or images, facilitating a more dynamic and interactive experience. The app, compatible with iPhones and iPads running iOS 15 or later, is also available for download on Mac devices. However, it is important to note that on Mac, Copilot only functions on Apple Silicon models running macOS 12.0 or later.
In a recent development, Microsoft has forged a partnership with Suno, an AI-powered music creation service. This collaboration allows users to visit Copilot on the web and utilize Suno to craft their own musical beats after signing in using a Microsoft account.
