Musk Vows Ban on Apple Devices Following Integration of OpenAI ChatGPT Into Devices

Tesla and X CEO Elon Musk has vowed to ban Apple devices from his companies, following the integration of OpenAI ChatGPT at the OS level.

Musk took to X to express his concerns, where he described such a move as an unacceptable security violation.

He wrote,

“If Apple integrates OpenAI at the OS level, then Apple devices will be banned at my companies. That is an unacceptable security violation. And visitors will have to check their Apple devices at the door, where they will be stored in a Faraday cage”.

Musk further expressed concerns, describing Apple’s move as absurd over its incapability to make its own AI.

“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! Apple has no clue what’s going on once they hand your data over to OpenAI. They’re selling you down the river”, he added.

Musk’s comments came after Apple announced that it would insert ChatGPT’s capabilities into its devices. Apple is integrating ChatGPT access into experiences within iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia, allowing users to access its expertise – as well as its image, and document-understanding capabilities without needing to jump between tools.

Notably, Apple Intelligence would seamlessly help users of its products with text and image generation, and even help power its assistant Siri. Apple emphasized that it would be protecting users’ data, and said that their data would never be stored, and used only for requests.

The Cupertino giant on its part, has said that privacy is at the core of its products, and assured users that their data will remain safe even after the OpenAl integration. Apple says that user data will be processed on-device and be stored on something called Private Cloud Compute which ensures the data will never be shared.

With Private Cloud Compute, Apple Intelligence can flex and scale its computational capacity and draw on larger, server-based models for more complex requests. These models run on servers powered by Apple silicon, providing a foundation that allows Apple to ensure that data is never retained or exposed.

Independent experts can inspect the code that runs on Apple silicon servers to verify privacy, and Private Cloud Compute cryptographically ensures that iPhone. iPad and Mac do not talk to a server unless their software has been publicly logged for inspection. Apple Intelligence with Private Cloud Compute sets a new standard for privacy in Al, unlocking intelligence users can trust.

Privacy protections are built in for users who access ChatGPT their IP addresses are obscured, and OpenAl won’t store requests. ChatGPT’s data-use policies apply to users who choose to connect their accounts, ChatGPT will come to iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia later this year, powered by GPT-40.
