Apple Files New Macs And iPads In Eurasia Ahead Of WWDC
Only five days ahead before the Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference or WWDC, a French website Consomac has identified a new Russian-language regulatory filing from Apple. The filing is in the Eurasian Economic Commission database and it points towards at least five new and refreshed models running macOS Sierra launching very soon.
According to MacRumors, there are five new Macs to be released. The models are identified by its model numbers, which are the A1289, A1347, A1418, A1419 and A1481. The units are likely to be the new 13-inch and 15-inch Apple MacBook Pros together with a new 12-inch MacBook, with the extreme chance of an upgraded variant of MacBook Air.
At the same time, it's also worth noting that these model numbers differ from the AXX prefixes associated with current Apple MacBook models. Therefore, nothing is completely reliable until Apple makes its official announcements.
The new found numbers also include a potential release of a unique wireless keyboard, with model A184. Four numbers included in the list are classified under iOS 10 and those are the A1671, A1709, A1670, nd A1701, leading to the assumed launch of a new iPad Pro model. Guessing based on the existing Apple model number patterns, the upcoming 10.5-inch iPad Pro is probably described by the two identifiers, A1701 and A1709, as reported by 9to5Mac.
Apple's last upgrades of the MacBook Pro was in October 2016, that is after the notebook went 527 days outwardly being updated. On the other hand, exactly 220 days will have passed if the Cupertino-based company launches new MacBook Pro models at the event. The said number of days is below the average timeframe of Apple, which is 320 days between any two MacBook Pro variants.
The new Apple notebooks are likely to be unveiled at June 5 WWDC keynote, which is set to start at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time. Other rumors also suggest that the tech giant could use the event to launch a new Siri smart speaker. The EEC filing completes Russia's requirement for companies to disclose all products containing encryption and cryptographic tools.
