Apple has filed two model IDs for new iPads in the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEA) database, Apple Insider reported on Saturday as A2200 and A2232. This follows five previous entries from Apple in the database this year (A2197, A2228, A2068, A2198 and A2230).
Little is known about the new models revealed in chips other than those to be shipped with iPadOS 13, which indicates that they will be released this year and coincide with previous reports that Apple plans to increase its production to release on the market. Apple Insider speculates that the two newer queries are for the 10.2-inch iPad, which is said to come as an upgrade to the original, $ 329 9.7-inch version. (Some of these additional 5.5 inches may be in the form of reduced frames rather than increased sizes.)

EEC records are required by law for any device sold with encryption components in countries like Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. They do not specify specific information but show that something new is being done.
At the same time, a second filing was entered in the EEC, but existing Mac models were included. Probably this is a legal requirement as it is likely that these models will be delivered with Catalina in the autumn.
As Apple Hardware said, Apple is also expected to release new versions of the iPad Pro, as the introduction of the iPadOS earlier this year sets a convenient refresh schedule. Apple released at least one new iPad Pro model every year after it was released in 2015, including the third-generation line released in October 2018. The base iPad is also set to zero because the processor is now three years old.[Apple Insider]
