Craig Federighi, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Software Engineering, emphasized the company’s intent to provide users access to both its AI and “external models.” “We’re starting with the best of these, the pioneer and market leader ChatGPT from OpenAI,” Federighi said. He demonstrated that Siri would be able to “tap into ChatGPT’s expertise when it might be helpful,” with this feature available to users at no additional cost. Additionally, Users can disable access to the AI chatbot if they prefer.

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman expressed his zeal on social media platform X. He stated that he’s “very happy to be partnering with Apple to integrate ChatGPT into their devices later this year!”

Elon Musk Reveals His Dissatisfaction with the Integration

However, after this new announcement, Elon Musk has stirred quite a controversy. Concerns have been raised over a potential privacy breach. This could be due to the data being handled by a 3rd party operator.

He seemed visibly displeased with the new partnership. However, the announcement has not been without controversy. Elon Musk is visibly displeased with the new alliance between Apple and OpenAI. Moreover, he has threatened to ban Apple devices across his companies, including X, Tesla, SpaceX, and Neuralink.

Musk asserted that incorporating OpenAI at the operating system level represents “an unacceptable security violation.” He further reported that visitors to his companies would be required to leave their Apple devices in a Faraday cage. Moreover, a compartment that blocks electromagnetic waves and prevents wireless communication will be placed.

Musk was very vocal in voicing out his criticism, saying, “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!” He also questioned Apple’s capability to safeguard user data once it is shared with OpenAI.

His comments and threats have sparked a diverged reaction on social media. Some users stated, how Apple is known for their unbreakable privacy system. Thus, sharing data with OpenAI could provoke a breach in the system. While others believe there will be a solid reason for a company like Apple to make this decision. So, they continue to trust the dedication to user security.
