Elon Musk is the CEO of multiple companies such as Tesal Inc., SpaceX, Neuralink, and The Boring Company. They might be different, but these companies have one thing in common: solve problems humans face or will soon face and let everybody look towards a brighter future.
According to Yahoo Finance, SpaceX, Neuralink, and The Boring Company remain privately held, except for Tesla. SpaceX talked regarding spinning off Starlink into an IPO. Currently, Starlink is launching a satellite-based internet solution aiming to service the internet to rural consumers or those out of reach of land-based internet connections.
Meanwhile, The Boring Company urges to dig tunnels underground to upgrade traffic congestion. Dave Lee, a Tesla investor, suggested to Elon Musk to build a parent company that will hold his multiple companies, called X.

Brett Winton, a tech analyst, said Apple worked on iCar that could be out in 2025. Winton said they watched Tesla's battery day Livestream. He took notes, which he claims leaked to Reuters.
Reuters' Monday report says that Apple plans to utilize a unique 'mono cell' design bulking the individual cells in the battery and frees up space of a battery pack by eliminating modules and pouches that hold battery materials.
Besides, Apple's design means more active material can be packed inside the battery, enabling the car to have a more extended range, as per Reuters. Apple examines chemistry for LFP, battery, or lithium iron phosphate that is less likely to overheat and is safer than other kings of lithium-ion batteries.
If true, it's strange, Musk said to Reuters' report. SpaceX's CEO added that Tesla already uses iron-phosphate for medium-range cars in its Shanghai factory.
Tesla Model 3 was launched in 2017, which caused huge issues for the company, with extensive delays and delivery and production issues. The company posted profitable quarters in the second half of 2018 but struggled again in early 2019.
