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 sometime this year. Recent reports have suggested that these may include an updated iPad mini and a 10-inch iPad.
Now, the developer Steve Trophton-Smith that it has four new iPad models referenced in the latest iOS 12.2 beta. The four devices that are referenced are identified as iPad11.1, iPad11.2, iPad11.3 and iPad11.4. Both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Mobile variations are presented. There are currently no clues that new devices will include a person's ID.
What is even more interesting is the reference to the new iPod touch model ID, iPod9.1, which obviously does not include any biometric authentication, such as ID or Touch ID. A recent report suggested that Apple may be planning to release a new iPod touch model in 2019. The 6th generation of iPod touch was released in 2015, and Apple continues to sell it for $ 199 with 32GB storage. The introduction of a new model this year will mark the first update in nearly four years.
In theory, iOS 12.2 refers to four new iPads in WiFi & Cellular variants (possibly mini, and 9.7 "?), All without Face ID and (Seventh Generator?) IPod Touch without Touch ID or Face ID pic.twitter.com/xiJN6kmmTe
