iOS 12.2 beta continues to spill the beans towards Apple’s future, as now it has been discovered new iPad models and an iPod touch are coming.
According to developer Steve Troughton-Smith, he has discovered iOS 12.2 beta points to four new iPad models and a new iPod touch. The code suggests these models will not have Face ID, while the iPod touch won’t have Touch ID either.
Troughton-Smith writes, “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.”
Earlier this month, Japanese site Mac Otakara said their sources at CES claimed a new iPod touch was underway.
On Friday, it was reported Apple had received Eurasian Economic Commission approvals for six new iPad models, suggesting new products are incoming.
Rumours have suggested a new iPad mini 5 could see a refresh, with Digitimes claiming one could launch in the first half of this year.
iOS 12.2 beta will debut Apple News in Canada next week, while a “Hey Siri” feature for rumoured AirPods 2 have been leaked as well.
Could Apple be planning a March event to debut new iPads, along with AirPower, AirPods 2 and a seventh-generation iPod touch?
