Anthropic’s artificial intelligence (AI)-powered chatbot Claude is now making its way to the iPhone. The company announced the release of its iOS app on Wednesday and said it is generally available worldwide. This is the first time that the AI ​​assistant is leaving the web interface and getting a dedicated smartphone app. Along with that, he also announced a new Teams for Business subscription plan that will allow corporations to purchase Claude access for all staff. Notably, Anthropic released Claude 3 AI models in March.

In a post on X (formerly known as Twitter), Anthropic announced the release of the iOS app. The mobile app functions in the same way as the web interface and we found it quite optimized and user-friendly. The iPhone app comes with features like seamless syncing with web chats that let you pick up the conversation in the app after leaving it midway through the web interface.

The iPhone app also comes with preview capabilities. With user permission, the app accesses the iPhone’s camera and photo library to offer real-time image analysis. Users could potentially click a photo of an object and ask AI to identify it.

Although the app is free to download, it comes with the same limitations as the platform’s free web interface. You only get access to Haiku or Sonnet AI models and there is a daily message limit that varies based on server load. It should be noted that there are three variants of Claude AI — haiku, sonnet, and opus. Haiku is the fastest but least intelligent, Sonnet is slower but more intelligent, and Opus does both.

If you don’t want to hit the daily limit, you’ll have to pay $20 (roughly Rs. 1700) per month for the Pro subscription. This opens up access to all three AI models, a greater number of chats and priority access during high traffic periods. Along with its iOS app, Anthropic also introduced a new enterprise team plan that businesses can purchase for their staff. The plan offers everything in the Pro tier, as well as a higher usage rate than Pro and access to the 200K context window mode, which is designed for processing long documents. The Teams plan comes at $30 (roughly Rs. 2,500) per user per month with a minimum of five seats.
