Apple shares closed at their highest ever level ahead of the company's iPhone 6 launch next month.
Last night the shares closed in the US at $100.53 - Apple's highest closing level ever when the stock is adjusted for its June 7-for-1 share split.
The highest close prior to this was two days before the iPhone 5 went on sale.
Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 6 at a special event on September 9.
Smartphones account for more than half of Apple's revenues.
The market is also waiting for other products like the iWatch.
