A slew of new Apple products are on the way, according to the latest beta of iOS.

Four new versions of the iPad are referenced in the beta version of iOS 12.2, according to developer Steve Troughton-Smith, who made the discovery. IPads are referred to as iPad 11.1 through iPad 11.4 and include two WiFi versions and two cellular versions.

Troughton-Smith says the iPad models mentioned in the iOS beta don’t match the devices currently on the market. He also explains that the referenced iPads don’t have Face IDs, which leads him to speculate that they could very well be new iPad Mini.
