Jon Prosser: iPhone 15 Ultra rumors and Twitter checkmark payment

What are the new features of the iPhone 15 Ultra?

The iPhone 15 Ultra is rumored to feature a lack of physical buttons. Instead of the volume and power buttons, it is rumored that the iPhone 15 Ultra will use a solid-state button design similar to the home button design of the iPhone seven, eight, and see. Of course, a taptic engine would be all over those ‘non’ buttons. This design would replace the physical-mechanical button design currently used on most iPhones.

How will the checkmark payment system work

For people who didn’t know, Elon Musk has bought Twitter. He wants to make people pay more for Twitter blue subscriptions. The price for Twitter blue will be $8/month. The blue checkmark will indicate that the Twitter account is subscribed to Twitter Blue. There’s also a new gray checkmark, the new verification system, it’s called the ‘official badge,’ that allows him to pick and choose who gets a verified account. If you’re not verified, you’re at the bottom of the totem pole regarding importance. So the new policy of verifying all users will have the net effect of pushing the unverified users further down in the comments and search results due to their lack of verification. This includes bots and trolls, which will be harder to find.

Update: Elon Musk has already killed the ‘official badge’
