Apple Inc. shares surged for a fourth straight session Thursday to the highest levels of the year, following signs of stronger-than-expected demand for the technology giant’s newest smartphone.

The stock AAPL, +3.40% ran up 3.4% by day’s end, with volume exceeding the full-day average in the first hour of trade. The stock closed at its highest level since December.

The 11% rally so far this week has been powered by the stock’s best four-session stretch of gains since the shares soared 13% in the four days ended April 29, 2014.
