More New Apple iPad Models Pass EEC Certification


Earlier this month, we came across new EEC filings that revealed five new iPad model numbers running iPad OS 13. We have now spotted two new model numbers on the EEC website: A2200 and A2232. Similar to the models spotted on EEC previously, the A2200 and A2232 models run iPad OS 13 according to the filings.

Sadly, however, the EEC filings include no other information regarding the upcoming iPads. Apple has already launched the third-generation iPad Air (2019) and new iPad mini (2019) this year. Recent rumors suggest a new iPad model will be entering mass production in July. The rumored iPad model is said to replace the 2018 iPad and might feature a 10.2-inch display.

Apple may also release two new iPad Pro models, likely featuring the next-generation Apple A13X Bionic chipset and a few other upgrades. It is possible that the new iPad models will debut at an event in October this year. Last year, Apple unveiled the refreshed iPad Pro models at an event held in Brooklyn, New York on October 30th.

Along with the new iPads, Apple is expected to be working on a new 16-inch MacBook Pro model as well. Most reports seem to suggest the new model will debut in the fourth quarter of the year. Apart from the larger display size, one of the key features of the 16-inch MacBook Pro is expected to be an all-new keyboard with a scissor mechanism for longer key travel as well as improved durability. Reputed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently suggested in a research note that future Mac models launching in 2020 will also come with a scissor mechanism keyboard instead of the current butterfly mechanism.
