In the summer, when Pokémon Go was launched, Nintendo shares rose quite spectacularly. Unfortunately for the company, they also plummeted only a few days after, when people realized that they won’t necessarily get rich because of the popular smartphone app. Now, the shares of the Japanese company start rising again, according to BBC News. This time around, the one to thank for the rise is Super Mario. To be more specific, the iOS version of the beloved hit game of the 80s.

Some iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S users reported that their smartphones don’t display the correct battery percentage. The problem seems to occur more often when users travel to another time zone or manually change the time on their devices.
