Apple Inc. has officially announced at the WWDC conference that future iPhone models will be integrated with Artificial Intelligence, specifically ChatGPT, which is owned by OpenAI, now a subsidiary of Microsoft. However, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk has expressed security concerns regarding this integration. He has warned that he will ban the use of Apple devices on his business premises if the decision is not reversed or reconsidered by Apple, which plans to release iOS 18 with this new feature.

Musk’s warning includes a stipulation that if Apple integrates AI technology into its smartphones, all visitors and employees at his office premises will have to leave their Apple devices at the entrance.

This action could escalate and potentially prohibit Apple device users from accessing services related to X, Tesla, and SpaceX if Apple proceeds with integrating ChatGPT into Siri, its voice assistant.

Meanwhile, there is an urgent advisory circulating, suggesting that iPhone users should delay updating their devices to iOS 18. The beta version has reportedly failed on many test platforms due to bugs causing operational errors in text notifications, battery life, iCloud photo storage, and the app lock and hide feature.

Some Reddit enthusiasts noted that issues with the iOS 18 beta version surfaced after Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter (now X), issued his warning about the AI integration with iPhone devices.

These developments began to unfold after Apple unveiled iOS 18 at the Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco earlier this week.

For your information, Musk, who co-founded OpenAI, the parent company of ChatGPT, left the project due to concerns that AI technology could be detrimental to humanity. Since then, he has periodically voiced his concerns about advancements in Artificial Intelligence.

With his latest warning to ban iPhones on all his business premises, Musk’s serious concerns about AI have become evident to the world.
