Two unannounced iPad models also appear in India’s regulatory database


As spotted by MySmartPrice, an Indian database is also showing model IDs for new iPad models that have yet to be announced because the units have received regional certification. Model identifiers A2124 and A2133 were first discovered in the Eurasian Economic Commission database last month.

Unfortunately, we can’t really extract more details from this latest regulatory filing. They are simply listed under Laptop / Notebook / Tablet category as a product made by Foxconn in China with Apple logo on it.

It is not known exactly which new iPads these identifiers represent. Thanks to reports from Digitimes and analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo, we already know what lies ahead.

There will be a new iPad mini and a new entry-level iPad with a screen of around 10 inches. The iPad mini 5 is expected to be an incremental spec update with almost no external design changes. The current fourth-generation iPad mini (first released in 2015) is sold in a 128GB configuration for $ 399. The new iPad mini 5 is expected to feature a next-generation processor and a lower price tag.

The $ 329 9.7-inch iPad will be replaced by a new model with a slightly larger 10.2-inch screen. This model will see at least some chassis design changes to accommodate the new display, and may adopt some of the design language of the 2018 iPad Pro along the way. In addition to the revised hardware, we would also expect internal component upgrades.

The 2018 iPad has an A10 chip, so it would be natural for the 2019 iteration to feature an A11 chip. There is also an external chance that the 2019 iPad will support the second generation Apple Pencil.

These two new iPads are expected to launch relatively soon, in the first half of the year.
