On the eve of special event gives Apple on October 30, when the company is due to announce new iPad Pro and possibly new Macs, the Cupertino giant decided to register some models of computers running macOS Mojave 10.14 on Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC, commonly “Anatel of Eurasia”), as informed by the Consomac [Google Tradutor].
The models registered in Eurasia this week were as follows: A1347, A1418, A1419, A1481, A1862, A1993, A2115, A2116, A1466, A1534, A1708, A1932, A1989 and A1990. It is worth noting, however, that some records refer to existing Mac models, which were updated by Apple in the regulatory body’s document to indicate that they now come with Apple’s latest operating system.
Even so, records A1993, A2115, A2116 had not been released until then; the A1932 register appeared in EEC documents last July. While the first three refer to desktop computers, the fourth corresponds to a MacBook model (which also meets the forecasts of the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo).
Unlike the MacBook and iMac Pro, the Mac mini has not received an update in over a year. 1,400 days, that is, since October 2014. There is still not much information on what to expect for a possible update of this device, however it is certain that the hardware will gain a beautiful overhaul – or not so beautiful, who knows.
Earlier this month, Apple also registered three new iPad models and even a possible Apple Pencil on Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) from China. It is worth remembering, however, that not necessarily everything that Apple registers in such regulatory bodies are products that will be announced imminently; even so, it shows that the company is preparing itself in some way.
Regarding the new iPad Pro, Apple tablets are expected to adopt the look of the new iPhones (with end-to-end screen and Face ID technology) and to come with a USB-C connector instead of Lightning. In addition, the 3.5mm audio output should also disappear from the tablets.
What are your bets?
