Employee iPhones banned by Elon Musk following Apple and OpenAI agreement

On Monday, Apple announced a partnership with artificial intelligence company OpenAI, which will allow Apple users to access ChatGPT through the digital assistant Siri. This feature is expected to be available later this year with Apple’s new iOS 18 operating system. However, Elon Musk has implemented a ban on the use of iPhones by employees of his companies if those Apple smartphones are utilizing OpenAI’s AI chatbot ChatGPT. He believes that this poses a significant safety risk and took to Twitter to report his concerns.

Musk threatened to ban Apple devices at his companies, including X, Tesla, and SpaceX. Musk also owns his own AI company called xAI. He expressed his worries about the security risks involved and questioned Apple’s knowledge of what happens to the information that is processed by OpenAI. According to Musk, visitors to his companies would be required to surrender their Apple devices for safekeeping.
