Apple Registers Two More iPad Models in Eurasian Database

Apple today registered two unreleased iPad models in the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database, using the model identifiers A2200 and A2232, according to listings uncovered by MySmartPrice and confirmed by MacRumors.


Both ‌iPad‌ models are listed as running iPadOS, suggesting the devices will launch this fall.

The two identifiers follow five other new ‌iPad‌ model numbers that were added to the database earlier this month. As with the previous identifiers, it's unclear which models these numbers refer to, but it's worth noting that Apple has already released a new ‌iPad‌ mini and 10.5-inch ‌iPad‌ Air this year.

That leaves possible revisions to Apple's two iPad Pro models, which analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects will enter mass production in the fourth quarter of 2019 or the first quarter of 2020.

There's also the prospect of a potential successor to the entry-level $329 ‌iPad‌: A recent rumor suggested mass production of a new 10.2-inch ‌iPad‌ was set to start this month, so a launch could in the offing this fall.


In addition to today's ‌iPad‌ filings, Apple also registered several Mac models, but all of them reference machines that are already available, suggesting the filings are simply being updated to reflect models shipping with macOS Catalina, also due to be released in the fall.

Similar EEC filings have preceded the launch of new Apple products on numerous occasions, including multiple ‌iPad‌, ‌iPad Pro‌, iPhone, Mac, Apple Watch, and AirPods models. The filings are legally required for any encrypted devices sold in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia.

The most intensely annoying part about this as an iPhone SE lover is that we can’t ever get some smaller new phone options yet there’s literally a different size iPad out of the blue every year it seems like.

Some of them have just got to be the new pros then. Dammit, that 18 month upgrade cycle was much easier on the wallet.

Regarding the macs registered with existing codes, has that ever happened in the Eurasian database before? Any theories what that’s about?

Nobody forces you to buy anything. Still using an Air2. Works just fine.
