Elon Musk Threatens Apple Device Ban Over Siri’s OpenAI Integration

Elon Musk Threatens Apple Device Ban Over Siri's OpenAI Integration

Billionaire Elon Musk has warned that he will ban Apple devices from his companies if Apple proceeds with its plan to integrate OpenAI into Siri.

At Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference on June 10, Apple announced its partnership with OpenAI to enhance Siri with ChatGPT in iOS 18. This new feature will allow Siri to ask ChatGPT for help with user queries and provide answers directly, without needing to open the ChatGPT app. Users will also be able to send photos, PDFs, and other documents to ChatGPT through Siri.

Musk criticized this move as a “security violation” and threatened to ban Apple devices from all his companies if the integration goes ahead.

“If Apple integrates OpenAI at the OS level, then Apple devices will be banned at my companies. That is an unacceptable security violation,” Musk, the owner of the social media platform X, said in a post.

“And visitors will have to check their Apple devices at the door, where they will be stored in a Faraday cage,” added Musk, who is also the CEO of electric vehicle maker Tesla and rocket maker SpaceX.

“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 actually going on once they hand your data over to OpenAI. They’re selling you down the river,” Musk added.
