Over the last few years, Apple has changed its iPad lineup with experimental designs and technical specs. The Cupertino-based company has finally reached a final version of iPad Pro. The last year’s iPad Pro 2018 models (iPad Pro 2018 12.9 and iPad Pro 2018 11) were both very performant devices on the insides and great looking on the outside, as well. Now, Apple seems to be working on new iPad and iPod Touch models, according to some references which say that the iOS 12.2 hints to that.
In the Apple store, we see the latest iPad Pro 2018 models, as well as the iPad Pro 2017 devices which boasts less performant components than their last year’s counterparts. Besides them, there is also the iPad Mini 4 which is already a little less than a 4-year-old tablet and packs even lower technical specs.
Now, however, a well-known iOS tinkerer thinks he discovered some references in the new iOS 12.2 version, which hint to four new iPad models and an iPod Touch device.
iOS 12.2 Hints To New iPad and iPod Touch Models, Reportedly
According to Steven Troughton-Smith, the one who discovered the iOS 12.2 references to new iPad models, the latest iOS version hints that Apple is planning to launch four new iPad devices. Most likely, there will be only two iPads, both of which would come out in their WiF-only and WiFi+Cellular variants.
“In theory, iOS 12.2 references four new iPads in WiFi & Cellular variants (perhaps mini, and 9.7″?), all without Face ID, and a (seventh-gen?) iPod touch with no Touch ID nor Face ID,” wrote Steven Troughton-Smith on Twitter where he also added the following pic:
Most likely, according to many Apple fans, the Cupertino-based company will roll out a new iPad 9.7-inch and the iPad Mini 5 (also mentioned in another recent leak), the direct successor of the iPad Mini 4 which launched in 2015. Besides, the iOS 12.2 also hinted to a new iPod Touch model.
