Apple reportedly making a 7th-gen iPod touch and new iPads

Four new iPad models and a potential seventh-generation iPod
touch have been found in the upcoming iOS 12.2, while seven new
iPads were found in registration info in the Eurasian Economic
Commission Database, as
spotted by MacRumors
.

Programmer Steven Troughton-Smith
found four new iPad models
ranging from iPad 11,1 to iPad
11,4 while looking through the code of iOS 12.2. Two of the
iPads are Wi-Fi only, and two are cellular. Troughton-Smith
tweets that the new devices could be iPad minis and iPads with
9.7-inch displays. None of the devices look like they have Face
ID.

There’s also a mention of an iPod 9,1, which could be a new
iPod touch since the current sixth-generation device is called
iPod 7,1. All we know about the device is that it doesn’t look
like it has Touch ID or Face ID.

The new model numbers add substance to rumors that Apple is
planning on making a seventh-generation iPod touch, another
9.7-inch iPad, and a new iPad mini. A fifth-generation iPad
mini is rumored to launch sometime this year, perhaps with an
outdated A9 processor.

At the same time, the seven new iPads that Apple registered
with the Eurasian Economic Commission last week potentially
include the four Troughton-Smith noted on Twitter. All seven
model numbers are new, so it’s possible Apple has even more up
its sleeve than just four new tablets.

Correction January 28th, 12PM ET:
This article has been corrected to reflect that the new
iPad models could be iPad minis and iPads with 9.7-inch
displays, not iPad minis with 9.7-inch displays. We regret the
error.
