Apple may launch new iPads as soon as March, hints new filing

Apple Will Be Releasing Two New iPad Models According to Latest Database Filing

This time it comes in the form of a filing with the Eurasian Commission, as discovered by the French website Consomac. Legal obligations require devices that use encryption to be registered ahead of release.

9to5 Mac believes, that the most likely situation would be that the new iPads are a "refresh to the cheaper non-Pro iPad line", which lines up with their yearly refresh.

The tablets have model numbers A1893 and A1954, according to the filing dated February 19, 2018. Recent rumours have suggested Apple would wait until this fall to release new iPad Pro models.

It was tipped that Apple has already registered for its upcoming iPad tablets with the Eurasian Economic Commission, suggesting that the much-awaited iPad refresh will happen very soon.

For instance, the iPhone 7 and AirPods references turned up just a fortnight before the announcement event.

Apple is also going to bring several iPad and iPhone devices into Eastern European countries and Russian Federation, with the legislators' approval. The current budget iPad, which launched in March 2017, starts at $329. The two model identifiers probably represent the WiFi and cellular connectivity options of the "same" new iPad.

The DigiTimes (via 9to5Mac) previously reported that Apple was working on an even more affordable $259 iPad for a second-quarter release. But this particular device is expected later this year; that said, none of this is official information, and anything is possible.
