Elon Musk Threatens to Ban Apple Devices from His Companies Over OpenAI Deal, Citing Security Concerns


June 11, California: 
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, took aim at Apple just hours after the tech company announced its collaboration with OpenAI on Monday, calling the move a "unacceptable security violation" that would compel him to exclude all Apple products from his enterprises. Musk voiced his worries about user data security in a number of posts on X, a social networking platform. Musk vehemently opposed the merger, describing it as "an unacceptable security violation," and added, "don't want it." "Either stop this creepy spyware or all Apple devices will be banned from the premises of my companies," Musk threatened in response to a post on X by Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Now launching for Mac, iPad, and iPhone, Apple Intelligence When asked about the integration, Cook said, "It's personal, powerful, and private--and it's integrated into the apps you rely on every day." "Introducing Apple Intelligence--our next chapter in AI," he said.
I will ban Apple devices at my firms if Apple integrates OpenAI at the OS level', continued Tesla's CEO. His addition was that it was an intolerable breach of security.

On Monday (local time), tech behemoth Apple unveiled "Apple Intelligence," a personal intelligence system compatible with Mac, iPad, and iPhone. Sequoia, iPadOS 18, and iOS 18 are all heavily reliant on Apple Intelligence. It makes use of Apple's hardware to speed up and simplify common operations by understanding and creating words and graphics, coordinating actions across apps, and drawing on user context. Musk continued by saying, "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!" in response to concerns raised about privacy and security through AI integration.
When you give your data to OpenAI, Apple has no idea what happens next. The CEO of Tesla said on X that they are selling you into a trap.
