The Verge has learned that Apple is buying $50 million worth of Tesla lithium-ion “megapacks” for use in the endeavor. In other news, UBS analyst David Vogt has upgraded Apple’s stock based partly on predictions that the company will move successfully into the electric vehicle market, possibly benefitting from President Biden’s new $174 stimulus plan for EVs.
