Ahead of the much-anticipated launch of the iPhone 15 series, likely to take place at Apple’s Wonderlust event on Tuesday, Elon Musk-owned X (formerly Twitter) has introduced a custom animation to its ‘Like’ button.
Here is what happens: When the button, which is shaped as a heart, is pressed, the heart fragments into pieces before reverting to its regular shape. For a brief while during the animation, the logo is transformed into the graphics Apple has used to promote its launch event.
Interestingly, neither Musk or X made any official announcement regarding the animation. However, it was spotted by users on the social media platform.
According to HT’s sister website Mint, which cited a report from MacRumors, the metal patterns seen in the Apple teaser video could be a hint at the potential switch to the titanium on the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models.
