What you need to know
- New iPad models have been filed in the EEC database.
- It could point to upcoming iPads that have not yet been announced.
- It has previously been rumored that Apple is working on new lower-cost tablets including an iPad mini.
New filings in the EEC database lodged by Apple could indicate the company has more new iPad models beyond its 2021 iPad Pro in the pipeline, according to a new report.
Apple might launch more iPad models later this year. The company has registered a total of nine iPad models in the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC).
The EEC listing does not reveal much about the upcoming Apple products. It only reveals the model numbers of the models. These are A2568, A2569, A2589, A2604, A2377, A2378, A2567, A2588, A2602.
As per usual, absolutely no information about these upcoming products can be gleaned from the filings save their existence.
