Musk: Don’t Trust Apple’s AI, Threatens To Ban Company’s Products Over Security Fears

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla
and SpaceX, threatened to ban Apple
devices from his companies on Monday after the iPhone maker announced a partnership with OpenAI.

In a series of posts on his social media platform X, Musk shared concerns about whether Apple and OpenAI will protect users’ information.

He called the software integration between the two companies “an unacceptable security violation,” and said Apple has “no clue what’s actually going on.”

Apple announced its long-awaited push into artificial intelligence on Monday, which included an update to its voice assistant Siri. As part of the update, Siri can tap into OpenAI’s popular ChatGPT chatbot. Apple said users will be asked for permission to share their questions with ChatGPT, and their requests and information will not be logged.

“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 wrote after the event.

He specifically said that Apple devices would be banned if the company “integrates OpenAI at the OS level,” referring to Apple’s operating system.
