What you need to know
- A hashflag has begun to appear on the end of the #AppleEvent hashtag.
- It resembles the Apple logo being used to market the upcoming Apple event.
One of the exciting things for anything notable on Twitter is a specialized hashflag that shows off a little more when you use a certain hashtag.
In order to add a little magic to the upcoming Apple event, Apple has gotten its own hashflag when you use the hashtag #AppleEvent on Twitter right now. The hashflag is simply the Apple logo in the new style that is being used to market the upcoming event, which is set to kick off on April 20th at 10:00 PDT.
The Apple Event, which was originally expected to occur in March, was actually leaked by Siri early this morning. While Apple is keeping its cards close to the chest as per usual, a new report from Bloomberg predicts that the company will announce an updated iPad Pro and the company’s long-rumored AirTags at the event.
The refreshed iPad Pro, at least in 12.9-inch guise, is expected to ship with a new Mini-LED screen and it’s that part in particular that could cause stock issues for those looking to bag a new tablet.
That’s according to a new Bloomberg report which notes that the tech is proving difficult to produce, with poor manufacturing yields set to cause a shortfall in overall production numbers.
The Cupertino, California-based tech giant plans to showcase a new MiniLED display technology in the 12.9-inch iPad Pro set to be announced as early as the second half of April. But the firm’s overseas suppliers are dealing with poor manufacturing yields, the people who asked not to be named discussing sensitive matters said. At least one of the MiniLED makers has had to recently pause production as a result, one person added.
Head over to Twitter to use the #AppleEvent hashtag and watch the new hashflag magically appear on your tweet!
