In the process of denying he asked Tim Cook to be CEO of Apple during an alleged conversation about a Tesla acquisition, Elon Musk has turned his attention to Apple’s App Store, saying Epic Games is right and that Apple holds a “de facto global tax on the Internet.”
Shortly after news broke about a new book that claims Musk wanted to become CEO of Apple and Cook telling him to “f– off,” Musk shared a few tweets denying the claim and reiterating that he and Cook haven’t ever spoken or written to each other.
However, Musk didn’t stop there. He continued the conversation about Apple on Twitter, but shifted to the debate around Apple’s App Store commission and didn’t pull any punches.
As the basis of why he believes “Epic is right” Musk said, “Apple app store fees are a de facto global tax on the Internet.”
