According to Business Insider, Musk regularly changes his phones for security purposes, while scanning and destroying his old devices.
Elon Musk gained international fame after proposing a small submarine to help rescue a team of children and their coach who were trapped inside a cave in Thailand.
Mask's lawyer, Alex Spiro, said he was updating his phone like many others and sometimes changing his phone for security reasons.
A security engineering director, Maya Levin, commented that there are some advantages to this behavior.
"This is not bad. You have to look at what happened to Jeff Bezos, who faced a breakthrough on his phone and leaked some pictures."
