Apple Files Several Unreleased Apple Watch and iPhone Models in Eurasian Database

Just weeks away from its annual September event, Apple has filed several unreleased iPhone, Apple Watch, and Mac model numbers with the Eurasian Economic Commission today, according to filings uncovered by MacRumors. There appears to be over a dozen new ‌iPhone‌ models listed as running iOS 13, including A2111, A2160, A2161, A2215, A2216, A2217, A2218, A2219, A2220, A2221, A2223, A2296, and A2298, as well as four new ‌Apple Watch‌ models listed as running watchOS 6, including A2156, A2157, A2092, and A2093. All of those ‌iPhone‌ models except A2296 and A2298 were previously filed in May as running iOS 12, and have now been updated to reflect that they are running ‌iOS 13‌, while the ‌Apple Watch‌ listings have never been seen before. As for the Mac, 11 model numbers have been filed, but all of them have either been released or were already filed in June as running macOS Mojave and have merely been updated to reflect macOS Catalina. At least one of these models could certainly be the 16-inch MacBook Pro rumored to launch this fall. The filings do not reveal specific product names, so we cannot confirm details like whether the ‌Apple Watch‌ models are considered ‌Apple Watch‌ Series 5 models, but new models of some kind are evidently coming. Leaked assets from ‌watchOS 6‌ recently revealed upcoming titanium and ceramic Apple Watch finishes. The new ‌iPhone‌ and ‌Apple Watch‌ models will very likely be unveiled in September, while the new Macs will likely arrive in October or later. There are also some already-released products on the list that have been

Apple Registers Five New iPad Models Running iPadOS in Eurasian Database

Apple has registered five unreleased iPad models in the Eurasian Economic Commission database today, including A2068, A2197, A2198, A2228, A2230, according to listings uncovered by MySmartPrice and confirmed by MacRumors. All of the ‌iPad‌ models are listed as running iPadOS: On the more imminent front, a recent rumor suggested that mass production of a new 10.2-inch iPad was set to begin this month, so a launch could be near. The 10.2-inch model, dubbed the ‌iPad‌ 7, is expected to be a slightly larger, slimmer bezel successor to the low-cost 9.7-inch ‌iPad‌, which was last updated in March 2018. Both ‌iPad‌ 7 (10.2”) and the “new” ‌iPad‌ (10.5”, non-Pro) are coming. But not at the same time.— CoinX (@coiiiiiiiin) March 13, 2019 The source of the 10.2-inch ‌iPad‌ rumor, CoinX, has an accurate track record. The mystery account previously tweeted the iPhone XS, ‌iPhone XS‌ Max, and iPhone XR names of the 2018 iPhones before anyone else, and also accurately revealed the 10.5-inch ‌iPad‌ Air, the 2018 iPad Pro being 5.9mm thick, and more. Looking farther out, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that two new iPad Pro models will enter mass production in the fourth quarter of 2019 or the first quarter of 2020. The current ‌iPad Pro‌ models were released in October 2018. Eurasian Economic Commission filings like these have foreshadowed the release 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 Russia and select

Apple Registers 7 Unreleased Mac Notebooks in Eurasian Database

Apple has registered seven unreleased Mac models in the Eurasian Economic Commission database today, including A2141, A2147, A2158, A2159, A2179, A2182, and A2251, according to listings uncovered by MacRumors. All seven models appear to be notebooks, as they are described as "portable" computers. MacRumors mockup of rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro On the more imminent front, the 12-inch MacBook is certainly long overdue for an update, having been last refreshed in June 2017. A spec bump to the MacBook Air is also plausible, but its October 2018 refresh was not too long ago. Looking farther out, we've heard rumors about a 16-inch MacBook Pro with an all-new design launching later this year. Given the ‌MacBook Pro‌ was just refreshed weeks ago, the 16-inch model is presumably a fall product at the earliest. Apple occasionally hosts Mac events in October, including in both 2018 and 2016. Eurasian Economic Commission filings like these have foreshadowed the release of new Apple products on numerous occasions, including multiple Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPad Pro, Apple Watch, and AirPods models.

Apple Registers Eleven New iPhone Models in Eurasian Database

Apple has registered eleven unreleased iPhone models in the Eurasian Economic Commission database this week, including models A2111, A2160, A2161, A2215, A2216, A2217, A2218, A2219, A2220, A2221, and A2223, according to the Indian blog MySmartPrice. The filings are legally required for any encrypted devices sold in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia. These models likely represent Apple's refreshed ‌iPhone‌ line-up expected to debut in September 2019. Rumors suggest the successors of the iPhone XS, ‌iPhone XS‌ Max, and iPhone XR will again be 5.8 and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones along with a 6.1-inch LCD ‌iPhone‌, respectively. Rumors suggest the 5.8 and 6.5-inch ‌iPhone XS‌ and XS Max successors will feature triple-lens cameras while the LCD ‌iPhone‌ will use a dual-lens camera setup. Otherwise, the 2019 ‌iPhone‌ lineup is expected to look similar to the Apple's current smartphones, but Apple may be planning to use a new frosted glass design for the back of the 5.8 and 6.5-inch devices. The 6.1-inch ‌iPhone‌, meanwhile, could come in new lavender and green shades. We don't yet know what Apple will call the new iPhones, but iPhone XI or iPhone 11 are possibilities for the ‌iPhone XS‌ successors. The EEC filings reveal all the new devices that have been added to the database run on iOS 12, although iOS 13 is likely to be available this fall as a free software update. Apple is expected to unveil all the new features coming with its updated mobile OS at WWDC in June. Eurasian Economic Commission filings like these have foreshadowed the

Apple Registers Seven New iPad Models in Eurasian Database, Rumors Expect New 10-Inch iPad and iPad Mini 5 [Updated]

Apple has registered seven unreleased iPad models in the Eurasian Economic Commission database this week, including models A2123, A2124, A2126, A2153, A2154, A2133, and A2152, according to the Indian blog MySmartPrice. The filings are legally required for any encrypted devices sold in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia. These models could represent new versions of the ‌iPad‌ mini and the 9.7-inch ‌iPad‌, which may become 10 inches based on recent rumors. Multiple sources have claimed Apple plans to launch a so-called iPad mini 5 and a new entry-level iPad with a 10-inch display, replacing the existing 9.7-inch model, including the China Times and supply chain-focused website DigiTimes. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also said a new iPad mini is in the works last year. Eurasian Economic Commission filings like these have foreshadowed the release of new Apple products on numerous occasions, including multiple iPad and iPad Pro models, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 4, AirPods, the 2018 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, and several other devices. March is a common month for both Apple's first event of the year and ‌iPad‌ refreshes, so perhaps we'll see new models then. Notably, Apple hasn't updated the ‌iPad‌ mini since September 2015. Update: A seventh ‌iPad‌ model — A2126 — was also filed in the Eurasian database today.

Apple Watch Series 4 Models Filed in Eurasian Database Ahead of September Launch

Apple today filed six new Apple Watch model numbers with the Eurasian Economic Commission, including A1977, A1978, A1975, A1976, A2007, and A2008, according to French blog Consomac. All of the models run watchOS 5. Apple Watch Series 4 mockup via Ben Geskin The filings are legally required for any encrypted devices sold in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia. These model numbers likely correspond with the widely rumored Apple Watch Series 4 lineup, expected to be unveiled at an Apple Event in September alongside a trio of new iPhone models, new AirPods, and more. In the past, similar filings with the Eurasian Economic Commission have been submitted for the lower-cost 9.7-inch iPad, 10.5-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple Watch Series 2, AirPods, and 2018 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, usually within one to two weeks before each product was released. At this point, it was already pretty obvious that Series 4 models are coming next month, but the filings eliminate any remaining doubt. The only unique aspect of this year's filings are that there are currently only six unreleased Apple Watch Series 4 model numbers, whereas the Series 3 lineup has eight model numbers: two aluminum GPS-only models, and six LTE models, including aluminum, stainless steel, and ceramic variants in two sizes. Naturally, this has led to some speculation that there might not be ceramic Series 4 models, but there are many possibilities. Earlier this year, well-connected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple Watch Series 4 models

iPad Refresh in March Likely as Apple Receives Certification for New Tablets in Eurasia

Apple has registered new tablets with the Eurasian Economic Commission this week, suggesting that an iPad refresh is likely on the horizon. The filings, uncovered by French website Consomac, are legally required for any devices with encryption sold in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia. Two of the tablets have model numbers A1893 and A1954, which don't correspond with any current iPad mini, iPad, or iPad Pro. There are also a handful of "sample" tablet and smartphone products listed that have model numbers starting with AA and CC, which is uncharacteristic, so it's unclear what those listings may pertain to. Recent rumors and logical guesswork suggest Apple could be planning an annual refresh of its lower-cost 9.7-inch iPad, introduced last March for $329 in the United States, while the iPad mini has also gone a few years without an update. Eurasian Economic Commission listings via Consomac A few months ago, supply chain informant DigiTimes claimed Apple is planning to release an even cheaper 9.7-inch iPad for around $259 this year. The website also said Apple's first new products of 2018 would be released in March, so next month is shaping up to see the arrival of at least one new budget iPad. It's unclear what changes the new 9.7-inch iPad would have, but given its price point, it will likely retain a classic design with top and bottom bezels and a home button with Touch ID, rather than Face ID. Any refresh is likely to be a relatively minor one, with a focus on performance improvements. The current 9.7-inch iPad is powered by an
