Although CEO Mark Zuckerberg previously hinted at the web version's arrival in the "next few weeks," exact launch details are still uncertain, as per sources from The Wall Street Journal. Threads' web version has been undergoing internal testing and refinement, as Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri confirmed. This version will be introduced before support for foldable devices and will bring a "Reposts" tab to profiles. Threads achieved a record of 100 million user sign-ups faster than any other social media platform.

Apple's upcoming flagship iPhone, the iPhone 15, might carry a new name, as per recent rumors.

The Ultra version is expected to feature a periscope lens for enhanced telephoto photography, potentially with a 10X zoom camera. While screen size might differentiate it from the iPhone 15 Pro, both models are likely to include a titanium frame and an Action button inspired by the Apple Watch Ultra. Additionally, faster charging and data transfers are anticipated through a new USB-C port.
