Elon Musk threatens to ban iPhones and MacBooks from his firms if Apple adopts OpenAI.

Elon Musk was not impressed by Apple's partnership with OpenAI. Speaking about how this collaboration will violate consumers' privacy, Musk said that the Grok phone is being developed to counter this technology.

Elon Musk threatens to ban iPhones and MacBooks from his firms if Apple adopts OpenAI.

During the first day of Apple's yearly conference, WWDC 2024, the company revealed several upcoming product updates. According to the rumors, the event demonstrated how artificial intelligence was included into the iOS 18 software update. Apple said at the event that they will be partnering with OpenAI to deeply incorporate ChatGPT into the devices for use as a chatbot. Elon Musk, nevertheless, is not impressed with the move.
The CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, expressed his disappointment with the OpenAI-Apple partnership on X (formerly Twitter). He responded by posting that his companies will no longer accept iPhones if OpenAI changes the operating system. Musk responded to Apple CEO Tim Cook by saying, "Don't want it (Apple Intelligence)." Either stop this creepy spyware or all Apple devices will be banned from the premises of my companies.”

Musk inundated its X page with memes and other content after the debut, implying that OpenAI's chatbot is malware. He clarified in a post: "It's blatantly ridiculous that Apple can't even create artificial intelligence on their own, but they can guarantee that OpenAI will safeguard your privacy and security! After your data is turned over to OpenAI, Apple has no idea what's truly happening. You're being sold down the river by them.
According to Musk, OpenAI calls this "personalization" of their chatbots because it trains them using private data. Therefore, Apple will violate user privacy as it incorporates ChatGPT into its devices. OpenAI has previously been involved in privacy-related issues.

It's possible that Apple anticipated the criticism. They've announced a "opt-in" choice. However, Musk also managed to take issue with that. In response to a user, he wrote, "Apple is *not* preserving privacy at all when they send your data over to a third-party AI that they don't understand and can't construct themselves!”
