At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 134.24 points (0.88 percent) at 15,325.30.

The broad-market S&P 500 index advanced 5.02 (0.30 percent) to 1,689.01, while the tech-rich Nasdaq dipped 4.01 (0.11 percent) to 3,725.01.

Apple shares sank 5.4 percent to $467.89, a day after unveiling two new iPhones and dashing expectations that a media event in Beijing would reveal a deal with China Mobile, the country’s biggest carrier.
