Elon Musk has Apple in his sights in a fight could get ugly, with the Tesla CEO claiming that Apple does not have a clue as to what will happen with the data they collect after they announced a relationship with Open AI.

As soon as Apple’s World-Wide Developer Conference ended on the first day, Musk came out swinging claiming he would ban Apple devices if OpenAI’s artificial intelligence software is integrated at an operating system level, calling the tie-up a security risk.

Overnight Apple revealed that customers would have access to OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot through the Siri digital assistant.

Recently the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission reported that their research shows that over 73% of Australians don’t want big tech Companies such as Apple, Microsoft, LG Electronics or Google capturing personal information on their lives.

“If Apple integrates OpenAI at the OS level, then Apple devices will be banned at my companies,” Musk wrote on X, the social network that he owns, This includes Space X, Tesla, and X. Grok, xAI, and Space Exploration Technologies.

“That is an unacceptable security violation.” he claimed.

“Visitors will have to check their Apple devices at the door, where they will be stored in a Faraday cage,” he added, referring to a device that blocks electromagnetic fields.

Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Bloomberg reports that during the WWDC event Apple announced that “ChatGPT integration” will be coming to its operating systems for the iPhone, iPad and Mac computers later this year.

They also claimed that user data wouldn’t be tracked and there would be other precautions.
