Following the overnight Siri leak and subsequent announcement that Apple will hold a media event on Tuesday, April 20, a new Twitter hashflag has appeared to help provide visibility for the event on the platform.

For the last several recent events, Apple has utilized hashflags, which are little icons next to hashtags on Twitter, as a way to market its events. The company first started the tradition with "#AppleEvent" during the September iPad Air and Apple Watch event and has maintained it since.

For its upcoming event on April 20, the hashflag mimics the colorful event logo used on Apple's invitations and other promotional materials for next week's event.

Bloomberg has reported that Apple plans to showcase a new high-end 12.9-inch iPad Pro with a mini-LED display, performance that is on-par with the M1 Apple silicon, and improved support for accessories such as external monitors. Apple is also rumored to be launching its long-awaited AirTags tracker, which could see its debut at the event.

I'm worried this focus on M1-chip and mini-LED means they will bump up the price on this new high-end iPadPro 12.9"....what do you guys think? Same price or new price?

The 2018 iPad Pro is more than enough for every iPad app in the App Store. Apple really needs pro apps for the iPad to make the “Pro” iPad relevant in the post-M1 world.
Piggy-backing on this, I think the primary limitation is iPadOS. It's already the best tablet OS, but it can be so much better with better multi-tasking and multi-user support.

The latter point is self-explanatory I think, and the former related to multi-app workflows. Compared to macOS, it's just too dang complicated to move files or workproduct from app to app. Take this basic example: get a link to a zip file shared somehow, open the file share, download the zip, extract the files from zip, modify the files inside the zip based on instructions in the body of the email, save the modified files, zip them back up, and upload to the file share. On macOS, most of this is super simple. On iPadOS, this workflow can be a nightmare and result in various versions of the files scattered throughout multiple apps.

@MacRumors --- please fix the first link to the "overnight Siri Leak" at the start of the article....

It points to: "wwwmacrumors.com" (missing the dot between "www" and "macrumors")

And unfortunately that seems to be a malware website.
