This week, Apple upgraded Messages for iOS 18’s beta to support Rich Communication Services (RCS). This lets iPhone users send better quality images and get read receipts when messaging Android users, but their texts still show up in green bubbles.

In AI news, OpenAI postponed the release of its advanced Voice Mode due to lingering issues, pushing its rollout to July for select ChatGPT Plus users, with wider availability anticipated in the fall pending safety and reliability checks. Meanwhile, OpenAI expanded its reach by launching ChatGPT for macOS users via a dedicated app, enhancing accessibility and usability for Mac-based interactions.

On regulatory fronts, the FCC proposed new rules aimed at facilitating phone unlocking, suggesting a mandatory 60-day window post-purchase for devices to become unlockable across different carriers. This move, however, raises potential challenges within current phone and wireless market dynamics, highlighting ongoing regulatory debates.
