Perhaps. Icahn has competing interests that are not necessarily in Apple's best interest. For instance, he has an investment in Nuance, the company Apple currently relies on for speech recognition and is rumored to be in the process of replacing with its own solution. He also has an investment in Pay Pal, which Apple apparently has shunned for its Apple Pay service. Apple is in the process of weakening his other investments.
