Elon Musk Slams Apple’s AI Partnership, Threatens iPhone Ban

Elon Musk has launched a scathing attack on Apple’s partnership with OpenAI, threatening to ban iPhones from his companies’ premises if the plan is not halted. The Apple-OpenAI collaboration aims to bring artificial intelligence features to iPhones, but Musk has vehemently criticized the move, citing security concerns. In a series of posts on his Twitter-owned platform, X, Musk denounced the partnership as “creepy spyware” and an “unacceptable security violation.” He directly addressed Apple CEO Tim Cook, demanding that the “creepy spyware” be stopped or all Apple devices would be banned from the premises of his companies. Musk’s criticism stems from his belief that Apple is not capable of adequately protecting user data and privacy after handing it over to OpenAI. He claims that Apple has “no clue what’s actually going on” once data is transferred to the AI company.

Musk’s Previous Feuds with Apple and OpenAI

Musk’s attack on Apple’s AI plans is not an isolated incident. He has had previous run-ins with the tech giant, notably in 2022 over various issues. Musk has also been critical of OpenAI, which he co-founded in 2015 but left three years later. He has accused the company of abandoning its original mission of developing AI for the benefit of humanity in favor of commercial success. Amidst his criticism of Apple and OpenAI, Musk is pursuing his own AI venture, xAI, which was launched in March 2023.
