Apple has used the custom Twitter feature for its live events since the September 2020 keynote. As of Tuesday afternoon, the tag for the upcoming April 20 special event is live.

The "hashflag" for the upcoming spring announcement features a stylized and colorful Apple logo matching the invites the company sent out earlier on Tuesday.

Along with the Twitter hashtag feature, Apple is also marketing their upcoming event with augmented reality objects.

Apple is largely expected to debut new iPad Pro models at the event, as well as the long-awaited "AirTags" tracking device Bluetooth and Ultra Wideband support.

The event will kick off at 10 a.m. Pacific Time (1 p.m. Eastern) on Tuesday, April 20.

    It will be interesting to see how the iPad Pro continues to evolve. Away from home it has pretty much replaced my Mac - the laptop is mostly a backup in case the desktop Mac goes stupid.

    Hoping the next model works with the expen$ive Apple keyboard that I use almost all the time. Multiple people I know want this one if I upgrade- willing to pay more than whatever the trade in quote will be.
