Today, at around 19:15 UK time, Apple’s public share price has crossed $270, the highest ever for the company. MacRumors reported earlier today as it hit $269 but now it has gone ever higher.

Also, Apple is no longer the most valuable company in the world, as it has been overtaken by Saudi Aramco, a massive oil company. Saudi Aramco is valued at $1.7 trillion, whereas Apple is $1.1 trillion.
