New evidence suggesting the imminent release of new iPad Pro tablets and an upgraded Apple Pencil has surfaced online. It’s now been revealed that Apple registered new iPad models and a new Bluetooth device with China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) in late September. 

MySmartPrice disclosed Thursday that it has spotted the registrations Apple made recently. The online products platform stated that Apple registered three model numbers with MIIT — A1876, A1980 and A1993 — on Sept. 29, 2018. The site added that it has also spotted a new Bluetooth device with the model number A2051 in a listing. 

The three model numbers are now presumed to belong to the upcoming 2018 iPad Pro models. There’s no absolute confirmation about this, but it’s likely for the new information to be accurate given that tech sites like 9to5Mac are now building up hype for Apple’s next-generation tablets. 

It’s also worth noting that the model numbers A1876 and A1980 correspond to previous iPad registrations that MacRumors saw Apple file in July with the Eurasian Economic Commission. As for the A1993 model number, it has not been spotted in a prior filing. 

Apple’s move to register new iPad models in another country is now seen as a big hint to an imminent release date. Apple is widely rumored to be holding an October event for new iPads and new Mac devices. Sources believe the event could take place during the last week of the month. 

According to AppleInsider, the new iPad Pro models are going to feature edge-to-edge displays. They won’t come equipped with a physical home button, but they are said to have Face ID. The iOS 12-running tablets are rumored to have support for 4K HDR video output via an integrated USB-C port, and they are also said to come with a new “Magnetic Connector” instead of the Smart Connector.

Meanwhile, there is no specific information about the Bluetooth device that Apple registered recently. Nevertheless, the model number A2051 is believed to be for the next-generation Apple Pencil since a successor to the digital stylus pen is said to be in the works for some time now.
