This year, Apple seems determined to update and refresh their old lines for Mac and iPad. During this week, the tech giant even made the first steps in this direction and registered five new device models at the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). Since we don’t have a lot of information on this matter, we will share the data we acknowledged so far.
MacRumours stated that the registrations from the EEC were made public by the French website Consomac. The information got out in the open just a few weeks before the announcements about the new products. In addition, there was some leaked data about the company’s operating system versions and rumours about a possible launch in countries like Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Russia and Belarus.
Other rumors connected with the launch preparation process
It looks like Apple is preparing to release five Mac personal computers. All of them will run the so-called High Sierra macOS 10.13 versions. Their model numbers are A1931, A1932, A1988, A1989 and A1990.
Since the last three of them are from the MacBook 2018 generation and part of the MacBook Pro SKUs family, users will be expecting updated software versions for the 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pro. Furthermore, the first two could be replacing the aging MacBook Air.
Apart from the new MacBook models, Apple could be working on five new iPads, among which the iPad Pro 3. In case you want to learn more about them, you should know about the report which claims that one of these tablets will feature an approximately 11 inches display. In this case, the tablet could have slimmer bezels, just like the most recent leaks suggest.
Both MacBook 2018 and iPad Pro 3 have something in common – they will run iOS 11 instead of 12 because Apple is planning to introduce them in September. Other speculations suggest that both equipment pieces will feature a faster processor, thin bezels, TrueDepth camera, the developer’s own customizable graphics processing unit and, for security reasons, the Face ID technology without the Home button.
