The latest beta of Apple's operating system continues to reveal the company's future plans. According to a curious developer, the Apple brand could offer two new iPads and an iPod Touch.
It was developer Steve Troughton-Smith who made this discovery by entering the iOS 12.2 beta code. As he posted on his Twitter account, four new iPad references are hidden in the beta: iPad11.1; iPad11,2; iPad11.3 and iPad11.4. Two WiFi versions and two cellular versions.
According to rumors, there would be two different models, a mini version with a screen of 7.9 inches and a classic version with a screen of 9.7 inches. In both cases, there is no Face ID facial recognition module (such as the iPad Pro), which would allow Apple to position them as entry-level tablets.
More surprising still in the code of this beta, is the appearance of the mention "iPod9,1", which could indicate that Apple would re-launch the reach of the iPod Touch four years after the commercialization of the iPod Touch of the sixth generation. According to Steve Troughton-Smith, the reference seems to indicate that the iPod Touch has neither the face recognition module nor the classic Touch ID, which allows unlocking the device using a fingerprint. The iPod Touch, which only works on WiFi, can be focused on video games and sold as a mini console.
