Earlier this year following Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook made a statement which basically suggested that Apple would never make their customer their product, essentially saying that they would never sell their customer’s information the way Facebook did.

We imagine that this probably didn’t sit too well with Facebook and a recent report even went as far as claiming that Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg, so incensed with Cook’s remarks, that he “ordered” Facebook execs to stop using iPhones and to use Android. However according to Facebook, it might not be entirely true.

According to a press release by Facebook, they deny that Zuckerberg made Facebook execs switch from the iPhone to Android. “Tim Cook has consistently criticized our business model and Mark has been equally clear he disagrees. So there’s been no need to employ anyone else to do this for us.”

However they do confirm that they encourage their employees to use Android due to it being more widely used. “And we’ve long encouraged our employees and executives to use Android because it is the most popular operating system in the world.” For what it’s worth, the latter part of the statement is pretty accurate. Dating back to 2012, there have been reports that show Facebook is actively encouraging its employees to adopt Android.
