New device registrations by Apple discovered this week suggest that an iPad refresh is imminent, with March the month of an announcement and a roll-out will take place. We know this thanks to the way in which the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) regulates the sale of electronic products.

Different areas of the world have their own rules when it comes to the sell of goods. The ec relates to the sale of electronic goods of Armenia, belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, and as 9To5Mac reports, the EEC requires new products that use encryption to be recorded for the release. Apple has done this, the registration of two new products with the id’s A1954 and A1893.

In the past, EEG-registrations have revealed when the new MacBooks were about to come, as with the iPhone 7 and AirPods appeared. Usually, the registration is done the month before Apple officially announces them, which is why March seems the most likely launch window.

It is thought that Apple is planning an iPad Pro update in the second half of 2018 will borrow some design elements of the iPhone X. With that in mind, it seems much more likely to be a new iPad in March there will be an update for the last year of the iPad . If that is the case, we should not expect too much than a bit of a improvement of the performance and, possibly, a price to change.

Apple used a press release to announce last year the iPad, so we should not expect more than that for this year the new model. However, if the iPad Pro is set to get an iPad X makeover later in the year, expect the usual Apple show and fanfare to happen.
