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, as they’re now available on Apple’s App Store. Just like in desktop Copilot and other AI chatbots, such as ChatGPT, you can type your question and wait for the answers generated by the artificial intelligence. In the case of Copilot, you’ll get responses generated by OpenAI’s GPT-4, the company’s latest major language model. In comparison, the free version of ChatGPT is powered by the older ChatGPT-3.5, and you will need to pay for ChatGPT Plus to access the newer model.
Additionally, Copilot on iOS has the ability to turn your words into images. This particular feature is powered by OpenAI’s DALL-E 3 text-to-image synthesis AI system, which the company says is “significantly better” at being able to type in the final product you want to achieve with the prompt of text you enter. DALL -E 3 was also designed to better render elements that its predecessors had problems with, such as human hands.
This is just the latest Copilot product released by Microsoft since it was renamed Bing Chat. The company also introduced Copilot on Windows 10 and then Windows 11, giving around a billion devices – depending on the number of users of the platforms – access to the AI chatbot. With these mobile deployments, Microsoft is expanding Copilot’s reach even further, especially since the apps are free.
