In afternoon trading on the stock market today, Apple stock rose a fraction to 167.53.

Apple stock has been climbing since its better-than-expected report for the June quarter. Strong iPhone sales and services revenue drove the company’s outperformance in its fiscal third quarter, which ended June 25.

Next up for the Cupertino, Calif.-based company is its fall product launch event, scheduled for Sept. 7. Apple sent out invitations for the event to the media and analysts on Tuesday. In addition to the iPhone 14 series handsets, Apple is likely to introduce new smartwatches at the event, the Apple Watch Series 8 wearables.
