Apple is not ready to release new products in 2019.
New iPhones – bulged square camera bump and all – are expected in September. The new Mac Pro is also coming the same month. A 16-inch MacBook Pro with brand new keyboard was rumored in the fall. And now comes the new iPad.
Two regulatory entries Apple submitted to the Eurasian Economic Commission (a now frequent source of confirmation for unreleased products) suggest that new iPad's are likely to be released this fall, according to AppleInsider.
The specific filings of the device reveal expected model numbers and nothing else. Which means we don't have any information about the registrations pointing to a new iPad, iPad Air, iPad mini or iPad Pro.
However! Given that Apple released a new iPad mini and Air in the spring, we can pretty much rule them out. This allows the iPad and iPad Pro to get refreshments. The 9.7-inch iPad was last updated in March 201
Updating the iPad Pro with new specifications – perhaps a new A13X chip based on the A13 chip on the new iPhones are expected to rock – and possibly enhanced cameras would be welcome.
But the most bizarre rumor so far is about the 9.7-inch iPad. Several reports claim Apple could replace the entry-level iPad with a larger model with a 10.2-inch screen. Although a larger screen would be nice, it would mix up today's iPad lineup and make it harder to choose based on screen size.
Here's what iPads current lineup looks like:
$ 399 7.9-inch iPad mini (2019)
$ 329 9.7-inch iPad (2018)
$ 499 10.5-inch iPad Air 3 (2019)
$ 799 11-inch iPad Pro (2018)
$ 999 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2018)  By putting the iPad mini aside, a new 10.2 would iPad's place between $ 329 9.7-inch iPad and $ 499 iPad Air 3.
If it replaces the 9.7-inch iPad, Apple could either keep the prices the same at $ 329 or charge a bit more for it bigger screen (maybe $ 349) and raise the starting price of an iPad.
If a 10.2-inch iPad arrives to join in the existing tablet family, we're looking at a tablet that will cost between $ 329 and $ 499, then probably something like $ 349, $ 379, $ 399, or even $ 429. Anything more, and I don't think people would buy an iPad Air 3 since the difference between it and a 10.2-inch iPad would be a miserable 0.3 inches.
The choice is good to have, but do we really need so many iPads? Apple used to be known for its simplicity, not just in product design, but for the options. But now the product line is in danger of becoming too crowded.
Nevertheless, new iPads are coming (probably)! If you are in the market for one, we recommend you wait. The fall is just a few months away.
