Elon Musk Expresses Desire to Buy iPhone 15 After Tim Cook’s Twitter Post
The iPhone 15 series finally went on sale yesterday, September 22, and now Elon Musk has expressed his desire to buy the iPhone 15 on X (formerly Twitter).
This series of events unfolded after Apple CEO Tim Cook posted Apple’s commissioned imagery captured by photographers Stephen Wilkes and Reuben Wu. “World-renowned photographers Stephen Wilkes and Reuben Wu show us creativity is limitless with iPhone 15 Pro Max. Their vivid photos display breathtaking views from the beauty of summer in Rhode Island to the other-worldly deserts of Utah,” Tim Cook said on X.
Elon Musk, the owner of X, then went on to praise iPhones for their photo and video-taking qualities. “The beauty of iPhone pictures and videos is incredible,” Musk replied to Cook. Later on Friday, when Cook made the post celebrating the new launches from Apple’s Fifth Avenue store in New York, Elon Musk was quick to reply that he was buying one. “I’m buying one!” Musk said.
With that said, Musk, after buying Twitter in 2022, has had a mixed relationship with Apple. Evidently, as per Musk, Apple had “mostly stopped advertising on Twitter” in November 2022, and said, “Do they hate free speech in America?”
A couple of days later, Musk met Tim Cook at the Apple Park and said that “we (Apple and X) resolved the misunderstanding about Twitter potentially being removed from the App Store.” More recently, Tim Cook said that there are “some things about” Elon Musk’s X that he doesn’t like. Cook called the platform’s apparent anti-semitism problem “abhorrent” in an interview with CBS, but at the same time added that “Twitter is an important property; I like the concept that it’s there for discourse.”
