Elon Musk wanted to be the CEO of Apple

According to a book on Tesla, Tesla CEO Elon Musk claimed to be the CEO of Apple in a phone call with current CEO Tim Cook in 2016.

The story, shared by the Los Angeles Times, comes from Wall Street Journal reporter Tim Higgins' Power Play book.

As noted in the book, Cook Musk suggested that Apple acquire Tesla, and Musk said he wanted to become CEO.

Cook has reportedly agreed with his belief that Musk wants to continue as Tesla's CEO. But Musk has made it clear that he wants to become Apple's CEO. According to a former aide, he heard Musk's call.

But Musk and Apple said the conversation didn't happen because Musk and Cook didn't talk to each other. "Cook and I never spoke," Musk said in a tweet. I tried to interview Cook about the acquisition of Tesla from Apple, and Cook declined the meeting.

When Apple was asked to comment on the reported conversation, she was referring to notes Cook wrote in an interview with The New York Times and denied speaking to Elon Musk.

"I've never spoken to Elon Musk," Cook said. Although I have a lot of admiration and respect for the company he founded. Musk also claimed that most of the content in this book was fake. "Higgins made his book boring and wrong," he wrote on Twitter.

Elon Musk's ambitions reach Apple

It appears that Musk was not involved in writing this book. In the author's final comment, Higgins wrote that Musk had many opportunities to comment on the stories, facts, and descriptions found on these pages. "Most of what you read in this book and not all of it is bullshit," Musk said, without noting specific errors.

Higgins said that Musk had many opportunities to speak, and according to people who heard the report at the time, the story of the conversation with Cook came from Musk's description of the conversation.

In an earlier tweet, he also described the story of Musk's conversation with Cook when he told an insider Tesla when the company was fighting for the Model 3.

Soon after he tweeted, he never met Cook again. Musk supported Epic Games' battle with Apple and its rules in the App Store on Twitter. “The Apple App Store fee is actually a global online tax,” Musk said. The epic game is right.
