Macworld When the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro arrive this fall, they will bring a slew of upgrades, including better cameras, refined designs, and a switch to USB-C. But if the latest rumors are true, the biggest reason to upgrade from an iPhone 12, 13, or even a newer iPhone 14 will be battery life. According to a Weibo report from an alleged Foxconn source (via IT News), every model of the iPhone 15 will have a bigger battery when they launch in September.

The share price of Apple, by far the world’s most valuable company, with a market capitalization over $3 trillion, has surged 49% so far this year, increasing its weight in stock indexes to record levels. The company’s weighting in the S&P 500 has swelled to 7.6%, the biggest of any one stock in the history of the benchmark index, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. Lewis Krauskopf for Reuters: That hefty weighting means moves in Apple’s shares have an outsized influence on index performance.
