Elon Musk Threatens to Ban Apple Products Due to OpenAI Integration

Visitors will have to lock their iPhones and Macs in a Faraday cage.

Following Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference 2024, Tesla and Twitter CEO Elon Musk has stolen the headlines over his seemingly serious threat to outright ban all Apple gadgets at his companies, in light of the latter's collaboration with artificial intelligence developer OpenAI.

In case you missed the news, at WWDC24, Apple announced a partnership with OpenAI, aiming to integrate ChatGPT into experiences within iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. Later this year, the tech giant plans to add the AI's image and text generation capabilities into such apps as Siri, Writing Tools, Notes, and many others, describing the integration as "a new standard for privacy in AI".

In response, Musk issued a stern ultimatum, threatening to prohibit the use of Apple products at Twitter, Tesla, SpaceX, Neuralink, and The Boring Company if Apple proceeds with its plans to integrate OpenAI's models at the OS level, calling it "an unacceptable security violation". Additionally, the planned ban would extend to visitors, who would have to check their iPhones, iPads, and Macs at the front desk and lock them in a Faraday cage.

"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 and privacy," the CEO commented. "Apple has no clue what's actually going on once they hand your data over to OpenAI. They're selling you down the river."

What do you think about Elon's warnings? Will he actually keep his word once Apple allows OpenAI to amalgamate with its OS? Tell us in the comments!
