Apple in the iOS 17 beta has changed the text that provides details on the Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfer time for Apple Savings account holders. In ‌iOS 17‌ beta 2, it now reads "Funds are typically available for withdrawal by the 5th business day" when a transfer is made.

While the A2 may be considered entry-level compared to LG’s other OLED models, it’s still…

Image: OpenAI The ChatGPT app on iOS now lets paid users access information surfaced by Microsoft’s Bing. In the app’s most recent update, OpenAI says subscribers who pay for its $20 per month ChatGPT Plus plan receive up-to-date information from the web.
