Earlier today, we announced that the new iPad models were registered with the Eurasian Economic Commission. Registration shows that Apple plans to release several new iPads this year. Recent reports indicate that they can include an updated iPad mini and a 10-inch iPad.
Now, developer Steve Troutton-Smith reports that there are four new iPad models mentioned in the latest iOS 12.2 beta. The four mentioned devices are identified as iPad11.1, iPad11.2, iPad11.3 and iPad11.4. Only Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + cellular variants are featured. There is currently no indication that the new devices will include Face ID.
Even more interesting is the reference to a new iPod touch model identifier, iPod9.1, which obviously does not include any biometric identification like Face ID or Touch ID. A recent report shows that Apple may plan to release a new iPod touch model in 2019. The sixth generation iPod touch was released in 2015 and Apple continues to sell it for $ 199 with 32GB of storage. The introduction of a new model this year will mark the first update for almost four years.
In theory, iOS 12.2 refers to four new iPads in WiFi and cellular variants (maybe mini, and 9.7 "?), All without Face ID and (seventh generation) iPod touch without touch ID or face ID pic.twitter.com/xiJN6kmmTe
