Two More New iPads Spotted in Regulatory Database

Yesterday, two unreleased Apple devices were discovered in Indian regulatory filings. A further two models have now been spotted ahead of the expected announcement of new iPad models next month.

iPad Air 5
The second wave of listings, spotted by MySmartPrice, appears in the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) database with the model numbers A2898 and A2899. This joins the two models seen yesterday with the model numbers A2836 and A2837. All four model numbers do not correlate with any existing Apple devices, but four new ‌iPad‌ models are expected to launch next month: A 10.9-inch iPad Air, a 12.9-inch ‌iPad Air‌, an 11.1-inch iPad Pro, and a 13-inch ‌iPad Pro‌.

It is not clear whether A2898 and A2899 are new ‌iPad Air‌ or ‌iPad Pro‌ models, but both product lines are expected to be refreshed in May following repeated delays. The appearance of new Apple devices in regulatory filings typically indicates that their release is fairly imminent.

I just wish, WISH, they'd have multiple user login in iPad. My girlfriend uses it 99% of the time for art, but i'd love a log in with my apps and logins on for when i want to watch something or browse the internet. As i've barely touched the iPad since it came out despite buying multiple of them it's just easier to let her have it 100%.

If they don’t do anything about the iPadOS you might as well buy the 2020 iPad Pro. There is so much power but you can’t really do anything with it.
While that's true, I'm afraid Apple will make those devices obsolete 4 years earlier than the new ones. When you buy a new device, you are also buying 5-6 years of support. A 2020 iPad might have limited updates left, even though it's powerful enough.
