Still shows “new” for me. The latest release is always “new” until something newer is actually available for sale or preorder.

Almost guaranteed that model will keep being updated in spring on a yearly basis, so I wouldn’t read too much into it (‘new’ is still there, on the GB site at least, as well). It did get an £10 price cut though, down to £319 from £329!

The 2019 won't come for another 6 months at least and will probably be the same exact thing with the new A12, maybe a new color. I just bought a Space Grey for my Father, wasn't worried about an update.

Probably the A11, considering the current model has the A10. If we get bezelless Pro models, I hope they update the basic iPad to the Air 2 chassis/screen. I'd probably buy that to replace my Air 2.

OP fabricated a thread so we can discuss a lot about nothing.
I was curious as to why this might be, and it was not my intention to spread any false information or fabricate anything in any way. As of now it remains the case for me that on the Apple UK site the iPad isn't shown as new, but, following the comments of other posters, this is most likely insignificant.

There is a lot of conversation about new iPads at the moment and this was merely my effort to input something which peaked my curiosity when I saw it.

it may be nothing more than some UK law that says that you can only label something as 'new' for X months and its been longer than that.

To be fair the UK has some very strict consumer laws.

But IIRC on the US website the iPhone X was "new" until very recently.
