There was a dustup over the status of the iPad app. During a meeting at Apple's headquarters, Musk said he and Cook had a "good conversation".

Musk said that there was a misunderstanding about whether or not the app store would remove the micro-messaging service from it. Tim was clear that Apple didn't want to do that. Musk didn't say what the original source of Apple's problem was. According to the former head of trust and safety, Apple had flagged issues in the past.

Musk did not mention if Cook addressed any of his other complaints. Musk joined the growing ranks of developers to criticize the App Store's 30 percent "secret tax" on in-app purchases. According to the newsletter Platformer, the re-launch of the blue subscription was delayed because of the fees.

Musk had accused Cook of stopping most of Apple's ad campaigns on the platform. The company is trying to make brands feel reassured.
