Apple updates WWDC21 ‘hashflag’ design, live on Twitter until September 6
Apple has updated its ‘hashflag’ custom icon on Twitter for the #WWDC21 hashtag yet again, continuing its iMessage-themed marketing by updating the previous exclamation reaction Tapback icon to the heart Tapback as WWDC’s main keynote draws to a close, and the week-long developer conference begins.
The original WWDC21 hashflag went live last week, which showed whenever a user Tweeted with the #WWDC21 hashtag. The design was then updated a couple of days later, with the latest change marking the third update to the hashtag icon.
Hashflag Browser, a site created by researcher Jane Manchun Wong shows that Apple intends to run the new hashflag from today until September 6, an interesting date given that Apple typically holds keynotes in September, the month when iOS 15 and all the other new software releases announced during today’s event are released publicly.
