Apple Inc. , which already hosted multiple events to show off new hardware and services this year, plans to host another event in December "honoring our favorite apps and games of 2019." Apple sent invites to select media for an event Dec. 2 in New York, headlining the invitation "Loved by millions. Created by the best." The iPhone maker typically announces the best-performing apps in its App Store in a December release, so the event could be a live version of that announcement. Apple this year has already held a March event to show off new services, used the annual WWDC keynote to exhibit new Macs and operating systems, and hosted the annual September event focused on new iPhones. Apple stock closed with a 0.5% gain at $267.10, establishing a record closing price for the fourth time in six trading sessions. Shares ticked up about 0.2% in after-hours trading, when the invite was released.
