Elon Musk: Apple Devices Face Ban at Tesla and SpaceX

In a surprising and controversial turn of events, Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, has taken to social media to condemn Apple’s latest association with OpenAI. Going to the extent of saying he will have all Apple devices banned from his enterprises. The announcement was made after Apple introduced its new AI software, Apple Intelligence, and described its collaboration with OpenAI. In an address at the Worldwide Developer’s Conference on Monday to introduce ChatGPT integration in a number of Apple platforms.

Elon Musk : Alarms over apple’s GPT-4 adoption

Apple’s newest move will see the functions of ChatGPT, while under the administration of GPT-4. Now function as part of the standard features in iPhones, iPads, and Macs, slated to be launched with iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia later this year. These measures include, among other developments, several improvements in Siri’s handling to allow the virtual assistant. To make use of the vast knowledge base at ChatGPT’s disposal. To attend directly to the user’s queries without asking for a user account.

“With user permission, Siri can now tap into ChatGPT’s extensive world knowledge and present answers directly,”. said Apple in its announcement. The company assured users of built-in privacy protections, including obscuring device IP addresses and ensuring that OpenAI would not store requests. Furthermore, Apple users can choose to connect their accounts to leverage ChatGPT’s full data-use policies.

These assurances were insufficient to quell Musk’s concerns. Shortly after the announcement, Musk took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to voice his strong objections If Apple integrates OpenAI at the OS level, my companies will ban Apple devices.. “That is an unacceptable security violation.”

 Elon Musk Claims Apple Users’ Data at Risk

All his comments spoke of complete distrust in OpenAI, a firm he co-founded but has since left under controversial terms. He further said that Apple did not understand the technology of OpenAI and therefore would not be in a position to protect the privacy of those people who use these gadgets. OpenAI doesn’t keep Apple informed about the use of the data they receive from it. according to his frequent claims, with no evidence presented to support this. “They’re selling you down the river.”

In one particularly dramatic touch, he said that, were customers to visit his companies, they would only be allowed to keep their Apple devices with them if they placed them in Faraday cages. Devices that block electromagnetic transmissions, to prevent potential security breaches.

Apple Defends OpenAI Integration

Apple has said that its partnership with OpenAI has a lot of protocols on privacy and security. It noted in its announcement that all information submitted to ChatGPT is secure, with IP addresses safeguarded, and OpenAI does not store requests. Further information submitted under strict policies covering data use will be done in case users link their accounts.

This is also integrated into Apple’s system-wide Writing Tools, supporting users in creating content through text. As well as in helping them provide them with the necessary visual flair to enhance their writing. The tools built for this allow users to be both productive and creative. But with very high standards of privacy and security.

Musk’s ongoing Dispute with OpenAI

This was far from the first time Musk had railed against OpenAI. He has a long history of public feuds with the organization and its chief executive, Sam Altman, in which he has accused OpenAI of straying from a mission. To be open-sourced and to pursue the development of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) to the benefit of all humanity. Musk has since launched his own AI efforts, including xAI and a ChatGPT competitor, dubbed Grok, since leaving OpenAI.

Relations between Musk and Apple have been tense for a long time, but they seemed to chill after a meeting between Musk and Apple CEO Tim Cook in November 2022. Recent posts from Musk have indicated this is no longer the case. My companies will not accept Apple Intelligence if Cook insists on promoting it as a creepy spyware. Instead, Apple should stop this intrusive software or face a ban on all their devices from our premises.

From OpenAI to xAI

The tech community and industry observers are tracking these developments closely. The stakes of Musk’s threats are high, given the profuse use of Apple devices throughout his companies and their client base. As of yet, there has been no formal response to these statements from either OpenAI or Apple.

The closer AI comes to devices in everyday life. The more the public debate about privacy, security, and corporate responsibility gathers steam. Musk is vocal and makes the bold statement about the larger issues related to tech. That come together concerning the hasty advancement and deployment of artificial intelligence.
