Apple has reportedly registered two new iPad models – using model identifiers A2200 and A2232 – with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database (via MySmartPrice), and both could be launched by the end of the year.
The two models that have been spotted have been listed run iPadOS, which suggests we’ll see these devices by the fall of this year.
The two new iPhones appear to belong to the same set of identifiers, from which the two new iPads were launched this year – 10.5-inch iPad mini and iPad Air.
This means that we might expect both models to belong to Apple’s iPad Pro series. Ming-Chi Kuo also had predicted that the new models will go into mass production in the fourth quarter of 2019 or the first quarter of 2020. Looks like it could come sooner than expected. According to Kuo, the new Pro models would support 5G. However, considering that it revised its forecast for 2020 iPhones, Publish-Apple buys Intel’s modem business, because “Apple now has more resources to support 5G on more models earlier,” we might also see 5G iPad Pro models coming out sooner.
At the end of last week, Kuo revisited its previous report, which suggested that of the three iPhones Apple is expected to launch in 2020, two models would be 5G compatible. He now believes that since Apple now has more resources, the company will launch all models that support 5G.
The 2020 iPhones are expected to feature some significant redesigns over the current lineup. Apple is expected to release a 6.7-inch, 5.4-inch, and 6.1-inch iPhone next year.
