iOS 12.2 beta includes references to four new iPad models, new iPod Touch without Touch ID

    Earlier today, we reported that new iPad models had been registered with the Eurasian Economic Commission. The registration indicates that Apple plans on releasing several new iPads sometime this year. Recent reports have suggested that these may include an updated iPad mini and 10-inch iPad.

    Now, developer Steve Troughton-Smith reports that there are four new iPad models referenced in the latest iOS 12.2 beta. The four devices referenced are identified as iPad11,1, iPad11,2, iPad11,3 and iPad11,4. Both Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + Cellular variations are represented. There’s currently no indication the new devices will include Face ID.

    What’s even more interesting is a reference to a new iPod touch model identifier, iPod9,1, which apparently does not include any sort of biometric authentication such as Face ID or Touch ID. A recent report suggested that Apple may be planning to release a new iPod touch model in 2019. The 6th generation iPod touch was released in 2015 and Apple continues to sell it for $199 with 32GB of storage. The introduction of a new model this year would mark the first update in nearly four years.

    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
