The strong rumors doing the rounds for the past few weeks regarding the launch of new iPad models by Apple Inc, appear to be coming true. As many as seven new iPad models have been seen on the website of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), seeking certification. The model numbers or monikers of six of them mentioned on the certification site read A2123, A2124, A2126, A2153, A2154, A2133, and A2152.
Not Much Can Be Read from the Certification
The EEC site has released a certification giving out the details of the model numbers. But beyond the model numbers mentioned above and their description reading that they are Apple tablets, there is nothing much. Of course, the operating system is mentioned as iOS 12.
Rumors Suggest 2019 iPad and iPad Mini 5
The rest of the information on the iPads can only be lifted from the kind of rumors floating online for some time. One of the strongest suggestions is that the regular iPad’s 2019 version may bump the display to 10 inches from 9.7 inches. And going with the trend, the company may decide to reduce the bezels on these new iPad models and bring in some more changes in the display features. All these may not amount to much. The processor could be upgraded.
The iPad Mini 5 is more under discussion, mainly because Apple has not tinkered with its design and features for a fairly long period. There is the new strategy to revisit the product pricing and to launch cheaper alternatives to push their sales volumes across markets. The company has been looking at segmentation of the end users of some of the models and making suitable changes in the design and features keeping the affordability factor as the main criterion. If certain user communities do not want a few high-end features that increase the price, then they can be offered the vanilla or no-frills model and their requirement satisfied.
Apple will certainly hold an event to make these important announcements and then add more products like the Apple Watch as well. Await the official intimation on this now that the cat is out of the bag.
