iOS 12.2 offers hints on upcoming iPad models and the new iPod touch

Apple has experimented a lot with the iPad line over the years, culminating in the new design and powerful internals on the 2018 Pro model pair – iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) and iPad Pro 11. However, Apple’s official store offers still the old iPad Pro 10.5 (2017) as well as the iPad 9.7 (2018), with a slightly older chipset and a lower price. Oddly again, there is also an iPad Mini 4 still on sale and official circulation, dating from 2015, with even older internals.

Now, according to a few references, discovered by a known iOS tinkerer in Apple’s latest iOS 12.2 release, there could be at least a pair of new iPads on the horizon. The references in question describe a total of four new iPads – two Wi-Fi-only and two cellular variants, which suggests to many that this is a refresh of the regular 9.7-inch model and a somewhat surprising iPad mini 5.

It all ties together pretty well with at least a few previous leaks. One mentioned both an iPad mini 5, as well as a new “regular” 9.7-inch variant, now with a slightly larger 10-inch screen and slimmed down bezels.

The iOS leak continues to give away with another mention of a future Apple device – an iPod Touch, of all things. Steve also couldn’t find any reference to Touch ID or Face ID for said device.
