Earlier today,registration info for seven newiPad models was discovered in the Eurasian Economic Commission Database, and now signs of new iPads and a 7th-generationiPod touch have been found iniOS 12.2.

Developer Steven Troughton-Smith has discovered references to four newiPadmodels, ranging fromiPad11,1 toiPad11,4, two of which are WiFi and two of which are cellular. These model numbers do not correspond to any knowniPadmodels.

Troughton-Smith speculates that theiPadmodel numbers could be newiPadmini devices, which would be in line with rumors suggesting a newiPad mini 5 is in the works. According to Troughton-Smith, none of the iPads have Face ID, which is what we would expect as a newiPadmini is likely to be positioned as an affordable, lower-end device.

There’s also a reference to “iPod 9,1,” which does not match up with any knowniPod touchdevices, suggesting it is a new next-generation model. The current sixth-generationiPod touchis “iPod 7,1,” for reference. The iPod listed iniOS 12.2 does not appear to have Face ID orTouch ID, so it’s not clear if something is missing or if it has a design with neither of these features.

Previous rumors have indeed suggested Apple is working on a 7th-generationiPod touch, aniPad mini 5, and a new version of the lower-cost 9.7-inchiPad, which may actually be upgraded to 10 inches in its next iteration.

In theory,iOS 12.2 references four new iPads in WiFi & Cellular variants (perhaps mini, and 9.7″?), all without Face ID, and a (seventh-gen?)iPod touchwith noTouch IDnor Face ID

Previous rumors have indeed suggested Apple is working on a 7th-generationiPod touch, aniPad mini 5, and a new version of the lower-cost 9.7-inchiPad, which may actually be upgraded to 10 inches in its next iteration.

Apple earlier this week registered seven iPads with the Eurasian Economic Commission, and at least some of those could be the fouriPadmodels Troughton-Smith has discovered iniOS 12.2. Those model numbers included A2123, A2124, A2126, A2153, A2154, A2133, and A2152.

We first began hearing about Apple’s work on a refreshediPadmini in late 2018, and since then, chatter has picked up. Rumors have suggested a new fifth-generationiPadmini will be released in the first half of 2019, and with signs showing up iniOS 12.2 and the Eurasian database (where Apple is required to register all new devices), that prediction is sounding more and more accurate.

There’s been mixed information about what to expect from aniPadmini update. A case leak suggested a vertical camera and quad speakers, but a photo of an unreleasediPadmini, which could be the newiPadmini, featured an older A9 processor and a design that’s similar to the fourth-generationiPadmini.

We’ll need to wait for additional information to figure out just what features theiPadmini will include, but it sounds like it’s going to be more similar to the current 9.7-inchiPadthan aniPad Pro. As for a launch date, it’s looking like it could potentially come wheniOS 12.2 is released, perhaps in late February or early March. The rumored 7th-generationiPod touchcould come at the same time.

Apple has held events in March for the last few years, so it would not be a surprise to see yet another March event in 2019.
