    Apple has registered five unreleased iPad models in the Eurasian Economic Commission database today, including A2068, A2197, A2198, A2228, A2230, according to listings uncovered by MySmartPrice and confirmed by MacRumors.


    All of the iPad models are listed as running iPadOS:


    On the more imminent front, a recent rumor suggested that mass production of a new 10.2-inch iPad was set to begin this month, so a launch could be near. The 10.2-inch model, dubbed the iPad 7, is expected to be a slightly larger, slimmer bezel successor to the low-cost 9.7-inch iPad, which was last updated in March 2018.

    The source of the 10.2-inch iPad rumor, CoinX, has an accurate track record. The mystery account previously tweeted the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR names of the 2018 iPhones before anyone else, and also accurately revealed the 10.5-inch iPad Air, the 2018 iPad Pro being 5.9mm thick, and more.

    Looking farther out, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that two new iPad Pro models will enter mass production in the fourth quarter of 2019 or the first quarter of 2020. The current iPad Pro models were released in October 2018.

    Eurasian Economic Commission filings like these have foreshadowed the release of new Apple products on numerous occasions, including multiple iPad, iPad Pro, iPhone, Mac, Apple Watch, and AirPods models. The filings are legally required for any encrypted devices sold in Russia and select other countries.

    Exciting news, Sept/October release perhaps?

    Is Ming-Chi Kuo right again? I wasn’t expecting new iPad Pros until 2020 but perhaps new 6 GB models will come by the end of 2019. That’s what MCK was predicting.

    One can only hope the Pros will start at 128 GB too this time around, but I’m not optimistic.

    Even better would be August to make use of the back to school deal but even October seems optimistic for a new iPad Pro. I’d love to get an early surprise though.

    Will iPads running iPadOS be able to run iOS 13 apps ???

    I naturally assume they will be able to run Universal iOS 12 apps.

    Man, Apple is just changing up the ipads like crazy the last few years... what was wrong with the 9.7" being the low cost version? now you will have 10.2", then 10.5" air, 11" pro?

    Way too much confusion of what's what.

    Yikes, I bought the 2018 iPad Pro last week because of iPad OS, and had figured a new iPad Pro wasn’t in cards until next year.

    So many models! Maybe a little consolidation is in order. Love my 2018 iPad Air!

    iPad OS shares the same foundations as iOS. It was just given a different name for marketing reasons to emphasize the new features coming in September.

    Assuming the 10.2" is one model that is definitely happening, 2-3 will be wi-fi and cellular variants of that, which leaves 2-3 unaccounted for, perhaps the rumoured OLED 11"?

    Couldn’t the earlier referenced new 10.x” model be the 10.5” Air?

    There is no such product. 2019 Air?

    Who is predicting an OLED model?

    It feels like a bit early for the new iPad Pro. The iPad 9.7" still had the A10 processor so it was due for a refresh. It will be likely a minor announcement like the MBP 13" this week. Now I hope new iPads will be announced this autumn with the new processors!

    I've been debating on if I was going to upgrade from my 6th gen soon and chances are I will be now.

    Yes, you could be right.

    Now that I look carefully, I think these 5 registrations are more likely to be 10.2" iPad. A single iPad model has 4 model numbers: U.S., China, Global, and no-GPS model. With 5 model numbers, that's only enough for a single iPad model.

    Oh, I hope they will release iPad Pro with more solid internal structure, because that bending issue is the only reason I didn't buy the new iPad Pro last year.

    I do believe this 10.2" iPad is gonna be the successor of the 9.7" iPad.
    Then the 9.7' size is going to be completely phased out.

    So the 9.7" is now going to be the 10.2", that makes sense. The 10.5" Pro got dropped and turned into the 11" Pro, but they're now bringing out a 10.5" non Pro? That makes no sense whatsoever. The difference between 9.7" iPad 6 with pencil support and 11" Pro was enough to merit the extra cost and spec bump etc. but if they are going to bring out a 10.5" with pencil support and presumably uprated CPU, why would you go for an 11" Pro?

    It seems Apple is going down the route of the car manufacturers. Sales are dropping, so we better release as many new models as possible that are all pretty much the same, just with a slightly sloping roofline on the new model.

    No..... Needs to be a screen size smaller than 10.1 inches so I can use MS Word or Excel for free (with an account).

    Or... MS needs to remove that arbitrary limit. :mad:

    Anyone think these new iPad models could be a newer design like the iPad Pros? 2nd generation Apple Pencil support maybe?

    Why not use Pages and Numbers? They have less bloat and are easier to use.

    Man, like everyone else in the MR forums/trenches I would like to think I am pretty informed on Apple products and services. But for keeping up on the iPad line including the mini 5 at 7.9", budget model at 9.7", iPad Air 3 and 2017 Pro at 10.5", 11" Face ID iPad Pro, 1st and 2nd gen iPad Pro at 12.9", Face ID iPad Pro at 12.9", and now a 10.2" and 10.5" non-pro iPad which is somehow different than the current 10.5" Air... I'm actually having to read over this a couple times just to be clear. Try imaging a regular customer now trying to go in and by an iPad..

    iPadOS is just a marketing name. It’s still iOS.

    Well, considering they only currently sell iPad, iPad mini, iPad Air, and iPad Pros (with Face ID, all earlier models have been discontinued), it’s actually not nearly as difficult as you deliberately made it out to be. The 10.5” iPad mentioned by CoinX is the iPad Air.
