The last time we heard about these two iconic figures and the CEO’s of the best tech titans such as Apple and Tesla together was when Elon Musk claimed on Twitter that Tim Cook declined the offer to acquire Tesla a couple of years back, back in December 2020. He had Tweeted:-

We know how much Elon Musk loves his companies because back in 2008 when both his rock star companies were on the verge of bankruptcy, he was the one to pull off the success and saving both of them simultaneously. And now, Tesla’s market value is more than $650 billion, and Elon himself is the second richest person on Earth, only behind Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.

Tim Cook never gave a response to the tweet, but when recently, in an interview with New York Times, Cook was asked about the tweet by Elon Musk and the possibility of Apple acquiring Tesla. Cook, in response, neither denied nor accepted the happenings. Instead, he chose to praise the Tesla CEO and said,” You Know, I’ve never spoken to Elon, although I have great “admiration and respect” for the company he’s built.

He also added,” I think Tesla has done an unbelievable job of not only establishing the lead but keeping the lead for such a long period in the EV space.”

The debate started with Apple hinting at the launch of its autonomous cars in 2024, the first self-driving cars on which the company is working. About which Cook added,” An autonomous vehicle is a robot, and so there are a lot of things you can do with autonomy; we will see what apple does.”

In the end, Cook concluded the interview by saying,” We love to integrate hardware, software and services, and find the intersection points of those because we think that’s where the magic occurs.”
