Two new iPad models found in regulators' database

Using iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

Two unannounced iPads are now included in the regulatory database, which is expected to there will be a new iPad Pro or iPad Air, which has been rumored for a long time.

As with the iPhone 15 in August 2023, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) appears to be the first regulator to release a list of new iPad models. The application is for two models, meaning they have passed the necessary tests before being allowed to be sold in this territory.

91mobiles was first spotted, but so far virtually no details have been shown publicly. The BIS listing simply states that Apple is releasing new iPads and gives two model numbers: A2386 and A2387.

Therefore, it is impossible to determine whether these are the expected iPad Pro or iPad Air models. The fact that there are two of them with sequential numbers suggests that this is one device with two screen sizes, or one device with Wi-Fi and another with Wi-Fi and 5G.

Previously, only the iPad Pro was available in two sizes. However, there have been repeated rumors that the next iPad Air will be available in two sizes.

Least likely, the Indian database lists both the iPad Air and iPad Pro. Based on previous experience, BIS, like all regulators, considers different sizes to be completely different models for testing.

Previous rumors have consistently claimed that several iPads will be released soon, although the date for this is constantly changing.

In addition, recent reports claimed that Apple has ordered 8.5 million OLED panels for the new iPad Pro. It is believed that this is the amount Apple plans to sell throughout 2024.

The biggest update to the iPad Air will reportedly be an increase in display size on the 12.9-inch model. For the iPad Pro, the move to an OLED screen will likely be a big change from previous models.

OLED displays are brighter than modern screens and thinner because they do not require backlighting. However, they are quite expensive, so the price of the new iPad Pro is predicted to be much higher than before.
