Musk to Ban Apple Devices at Companies If They Use OpenAI

Elon musk warns everyone

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, has said that Apple will not be able to use his companies’ devices if the tech giant adds OpenAI’s artificial intelligence (AI) technology to its operating systems. Musk calls this a security risk.

Elon Musk says he will not allow iPhones or other Apple products in his business.

This means that soon, all X, Tesla, SpaceX, and xAI employees might not be able to use their iPhones, iPads, or Macs at work.

“If Apple adds OpenAI to the OS level, my companies will not allow Apple device use.” That is not a good way to violate security. And people who come in will have to check their Apple devices at the door. They will be kept in a Faraday cage, Musk wrote in a post on X on Monday night.

A Faraday cage is a metal box that stops all digital signals, even cell phone signals, from getting in or out.

Apple announced earlier in the day on Monday that it would be working with OpenAI, the company that makes ChatGPT, to add AI features to its apps and upcoming operating systems, including iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia. Musk’s comments come after those announcements.

Cupertino’s tech giant also unveiled “Apple Intelligence” at WWDC 2024. This is a new personal intelligence system that combines the power of generative models for iPhones, iPads, and Macs.

Senior Vice President for Software Engineering at Apple, Craig Federighi, said that user privacy is still very important to the company. He also said that AI was built with privacy in mind.

“On-device processing is the most important part of the personal intelligence system.” Federationighi went on, “It knows your personal information without getting it.”

With the new “Apple Intelligence” system, users can get to a smarter Siri voice assistant through ChatGPT and the Writing Tools that are available across the whole system without having to make an account. It’s also safe to use ChatGPT through Siri and Writing Tools because it has privacy features built in. OpenAI will not store any requests either, and users’ IP addresses will be hidden.

In addition, Apple said it would use its own AI and that adding OpenAI is not required. He also said that users would be asked before giving ChatGPT any information. But Musk said he didn’t think Apple users’ private information would stay private.

“It’s completely ridiculous that Apple isn’t smart enough to make their own AI but can guarantee that OpenAI will keep your data and security safe!” Musk wrote on X. “Once Apple gives your data to OpenAI, they have no idea what’s going on.” “They’re giving you away for free.”

Musk sued OpenAI and its CEO Sam Altman in February of this year, saying that the company had betrayed its original non-profit mission to ensure AI development for the benefit of humanity and not for profit. Musk co-founded OpenAI in 2015 and called it a “lie.”

For the growing need for generative AI, Musk started his own AI company, xAI, in July of last year. He did this to make an alternative to the popular chatbot ChatGPT.
