Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) soars to all-time high after top analyst suggests ‘completely wireless’ iPhone could arrive by 2021

Apple soared to an all-time high Friday, jumping as much as 1.5% following reports detailing its upcoming iPhone lineup.

The company may release a new, high-tier iPhone without a Lightning port and a “completely wireless experience” as soon as 2021, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in a Thursday note. The product would rely on wireless charging for its power source and would serve as a new way for the company to differentiate its more expensive phones from the rest of its lineup.

Apple is expected to unveil its first 5G-capable iPhone lineup in fall 2020.

The stock jump also follows a Friday US jobs report that trounced expectations. The nation’s economy added 266,000 nonfarm payrolls in November, higher than the 185,000 prediction among economists. The data also pushed the US unemployment rate to a historically low 3.5%.

The positive labor market update drove all three major US indexes roughly 1% higher.

Friday’s surge further solidifies Apple’s position as the world’s most valuable company. The Cupertino, California-based company took back the market-cap crown from Microsoft on October 18 as better-than-expected iPhone 11 sales propped up its stock price. Several analysts previously anticipated consumers would skip the latest iPhone generation to wait for its 5G-enabled devices.

Apple was also the first publicly traded company to break the $1 trillion market cap threshold, setting the record in August 2018.

The company traded at $269.39 per share at 11:40 a.m. ET, up roughly 71% year-to-date.
