The relationship between Elon Musk and Apple is somewhat special. Apparently it is possible that in the past there would have been contacts between them. However, there never were any conversations, or at least that’s what they officially indicate. Neither party recognizes that they existed.
However, other sources suggest that is not exactly what happened. For example, a recently published book by Wall Street Journal reporter Tim Higgins indicates that Musk would be unhappy because allegedly tried to sell Tesla to Apple
What we really know is that Elon Musk and Apple don’t seem to have a good relationship. This is the impression that the first left a few times when he learns that Apple has recruited talent from Tesla. And now Musk has once again drawn Cupertino’s attention to his legal battle against Epic.
Apple’s App Store fees are a de facto worldwide Internet tax. Epic is right.

In a recent tweet, Elon Musk sided with Epic stating that “App Store commissions are a global internet tax”. Statements that revolutionized the network, as Musk is used to doing. At the same time, he also took the opportunity to deny rumors that he tried to become the CEO of Apple.
For now, the legal battle between Epic and Apple is still ongoing, and it may be some time before we know the consequences. However, it’s really interesting that Elon Musk is showing up now in this conversation, especially after the recent publication of these rumors of conversations with Apple, which has not really gone unnoticed.
