Elon Musk, who is the head of Tesla and SpaceX stated that he might ban Apple devices from his companies. His statement came after Apple announced it was teaming up with OpenAI.

On his social media platform, X, Elon Musk voiced worries about how Apple and OpenAI would handle user data. He went on to label the software partnership between Apple and OpenAI “an unacceptable security violation” before adding that Apple literally has no clue what’s actually going on.

Apple also assured users that they would be asked permission to share their questions with ChatGPT and that their requests and information wouldn’t be logged in the first place.

“If Apple integrates OpenAI at the OS level, then Apple devices will be banned at my companies. That is an unacceptable security violation,” Musk added.

Earlier in the day, Apple unveiled a range of AI features across its apps and operating systems, along with a partnership with OpenAI to integrate ChatGPT technology into its devices.

Apple emphasized that its AI development prioritizes privacy, using a combination of on-device processing and cloud computing to support these features.

“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!” Musk said on X.

“What (Apple) is trying to now add to the narrative is when (data) leaves and goes to the secure private cloud, it’s similarly taking that same user data anonymization and firewalling of that information to you. Apple really never sees that,” he added.
