Elon Musk Threatens to Ban Apple Devices Over OpenAI Integration

Elon Musk threatens to ban Apple devices if OpenAI is integrated at the operating system level. Musk expresses concerns about security violations and plans to store Apple devices in a Faraday cage. Apple announces AI features and partnership with OpenAI, emphasising privacy.

Musk, the CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and the owner of the social network platform X, has expressed worries about the possible security hazards of such integration.


Musk used X, his social media platform, to express his extreme objection to the proposal. He said, "That is an unacceptable security violation. And visitors will have to check their Apple devices at the door, where they will be stored in a Faraday cage." This comment demonstrates his willingness to prioritise security in his businesses.


However, earlier in the day, Apple generated headlines with the release of a number of AI features for its apps and operating systems. Furthermore, the tech behemoth announced a collaboration with OpenAI to introduce ChatGPT technology to its products.


Apple highlighted its commitment to privacy, claiming that AI was designed with privacy "at the core." To power these AI features, the business intends to use both on-device processing and cloud computing. Musk, on the other hand, expressed scepticism, saying on X, "It's patently absurd that Apple isn't smart enough to make their own AI, yet is somehow capable of ensuring that OpenAI will protect your security & privacy!"


The recent battle between Musk and OpenAI is not the first. Musk launched a lawsuit in March against OpenAI, which he co-founded in 2015, and its CEO Sam Altman. Musk accused them of diverting from the startup's initial aim of developing AI for human benefit and instead focusing on profit.


In reaction to OpenAI's ChatGPT, Musk founded his own company named xAI. The goal of xAI is to challenge OpenAI and develop an alternative to the viral chatbot. In its most recent investment round, xAI was valued at an incredible $24 billion and raised $6 billion in series B funding.
