New Apple iPad models appear in regulatory filings suggesting two new tablets are incoming?
Two new Apple iPad models, "A1893" and "A1954," were approved by the Eurasian Economic Commission. The regulatory agency has oversight in countries like Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. The two model numbers do not correspond with any previously released iPad tablet. Top Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo of KGI Securities said last year that the 2018 Apple iPad Pro will resemble the Apple iPhone X thanks to the inclusion of an edge-to-edge screen, the TrueDepth Camera, and Face ID. And yes, that means that the new iPad Pro units will feature the infamous "notch."

We would expect to see Apple unveil two new iPad Pro versions, one with a 10.5-inch screen and the other carrying a 12.9-inch panel. Considering the price of OLED, both slates will most likely employ LCD displays. Previously discovered code found in an iOS beta made references to a "Modern" design for new iPad Pro tablets. Before the iPhone X was introduced, pre-release iOS code at the time mentioned a "Modern" iPhone.

Last year's new iPad Pro models were unveiled at WWDC, and we could see the new tablets introduced during this year's version of the developer conference. While Apple has yet to announce the dates for 2018, we could see it held from June 4th through June 8th in San Jose.

As long as I love the iPad 10.5 Pro, but I’ll wait for the iPad X, iPad mini pro or whatever Apple call it with more powerful hardware. Know that mini will never comes with powerful hardware as pro or ordinary iPad, but let see what Apple gonna offer with upcoming 2018 iPad.

I understand the appeal of bezelless phones, but why a tablet? It will make it hard to hold, touch rejection algorithms aren't perfect.

Apple keeps using anti-ergonomic design for its pads by keeping to eliminate the very useful bezels.
