ChatGPT for iOS now offers a connection to Bing for a user experience that incorporates more up-to-date information.
There is a caveat, however, as only paid subscribers to the app’s premium Plus tier are able to take advantage of the new feature.
It means that the AI-powered ChatGPT app will now be able to pull up more recent information instead of only using older web-based data that it’s been trained on, which reaches as far as 2021.
“Plus users can now use ‘Browsing’ to get comprehensive answers and current insights on events and information that extend beyond the model’s original training data,” OpenAI said in notes for the latest version of ChatGPT for iPhone, released on Tuesday.
Users of the paid Plus tier can try it out by enabling Browsing in the “New Features” section of the app’s settings. Next, select GPT-4 in the model switcher and choose “Browse with Bing” in the drop-down.
While it’s a disappointment that the update allows engagement only with Bing and not other search engines, it’s no surprise that it’s this particular search tool that ChatGPT has incorporated. That’s because Bing is made by Microsoft, the company that earlier this year announced a major investment in OpenAI. The funding, which follows two other similar rounds of support by Microsoft in 2019 and 2021, was reportedly worth as much as $10 billion. ChatGPT is also already a part of Bing search for web and is integrated into Microsoft’s Edge browser.
OpenAI released the free ChatGPT app for iPhone last month. ChatGPT Plus costs $20 per month with benefits including smooth access to ChatGPT during peak times, faster response times, and priority access to new features and improvements.

This app is like ChatGPT for your email, and it changed my life
I can write a few thousand words about how emails are the bane of my existence, but I have to sip the bitter nectar of my professional reality every morning as I open my eyes and tap on the barrage of Gmail notifications on my phone. It also doesn’t help that every single email client that I have tried so far, both paid and free, has promised me an inbox utopia, then underwhelmed me big time. In a nutshell, it’s a reality filled with the non-charming chore of managing an inbox that never shuts down.
That’s where Shortwave comes into the picture. It’s an email client that again claims to redefine how you interact with your emails. Just the way ChatGPT saves you the drudgery of sifting through web search results, and instead presents a summary of the best answer pulled from multiple sources, Shortwave does the same for long emails by presenting them in a condensed and concise form.

I just found the perfect ChatGPT iPhone app, and it’s free
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: ChatGPT is huge right now. After exploding in popularity in late 2022, the AI chatbot has been on an enormous rise, with no sign of slowing down. One of the ways we’ve seen ChatGPT expand is its continued integration into smartphone apps. Whether it’s Bing Chat coming to mobile or a ChatGPT iPhone keyboard, it’s all been fascinating to watch unfold.
One of the latest ChatGPT mobile apps to hit the scene is one called “Perplexity AI,” which is an iPhone app that brings ChatGPT directly to your smartphone — no need for a web browser. And it does so with a sleek interface, helpful features, and zero ads. Best of all? It’s 100% free to use. I’ve been playing with the app on my iPhone 14 Pro for about a day now, and I’m seriously impressed with what I’m seeing.
