Musk to Ban Apple Devices at His Companies Over OpenAI Deal

In a bold move on Monday, tech billionaire Elon Musk announced his intention to ban the use of Apple devices at his companies following Apple’s announcement of a partnership with OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT. Musk, who owns the social media platform X and is the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, expressed his concerns on social media.

“If Apple integrates OpenAI at the OS level, then Apple devices will be banned at my companies. That is an unacceptable security violation,” Musk stated in a post. He further added, “And visitors will have to check their Apple devices at the door, where they will be stored in a Faraday cage.”

This declaration comes after Apple revealed plans to incorporate ChatGPT into its voice assistant, Siri. Musk criticized Apple’s decision, suggesting that it compromised user security and privacy. “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! Apple has no clue what’s actually going on once they hand your data over to OpenAI. They’re selling you down the river,” Musk commented.

The announcement by Apple marks a significant step in integrating advanced AI capabilities into its products, but Musk’s reaction highlights ongoing concerns about data security and privacy in the evolving tech landscape. The impact of Musk’s proposed ban on Apple devices at his companies remains to be seen.–News Desk
