According to a new report from 91mobile based in India, Apple is starting to import three unreleased products into the country. These products, according to the report, are the new iPhone SE 3, a new iPad Air, and the iPad 10.
Back in January, Apple filed unreleased iPhones and iPads into the Eurasian Economic Commission database. This is a legal requirement for all companies that want to sell any devices that provide encryption services in several countries, such as Russia.
This information usually helps us figure out when Apple will launch a particular product, as the company is required to do so by law and usually does so close to the launch date. Not super close, though. For example, Apple filed the iPhone 13 into this database in June 2021, and it was finally released in mid-September of the same year.

There are three unreleased iPhone identifiers: A2595, A2783 and A2784, as well as nine unreleased iPad identifiers: A2588, A2589, A2591, A2696, A2757, A2759, A2761, A2766, and A2777.
If we go through the iPhone identifiers, I would assume they belong to three different storage options. Probably 64, 128, and 256 GB. This is just an opinion, and it is not based on any leaks from any sources.
As for the iPad identifiers, I think they belong to both the regular iPad and the new iPad Air.
I asked my sources what they had to say about this, and they made it clear that this is a definite sign that we will have an Apple event in April. It is still being decided if it will be the 12th or the 19th, but there will be one.
So far, we have been able to confirm that the new iPhone SE 3 and the new iPad Air will be unveiled during this event, and it should not be long before we can also confirm the unveiling of the redesigned M1 Pro and M1 Max Mac mini during this event.
iPad Updates for 2022
There will not be any major changes to the regular iPad. The design will remain the same, as will the touch ID sensor, display technology, Lightning connector, etc. The price will be the usual $329.
The iPad Air also will not feature an incredible redesign. There will be a few changes here and there, such as internal improvements like the A5 and 5G, better speakers and microphones, and better rear and front cameras. I have heard that it’s also possible that the display will be brighter this time around, although the technology will remain the same as the current iPad Air.
I asked my sources, and they told me that the price is not expected to change. So it is safe to assume that the price will be around the usual $599.
To sum it up, I can safely say that we will see the iPad Air 5 and the iPhone SE 3 with 5G, as well as the redesigned M1 Pro and M1 Max Mac mini. I have not yet confirmed that the regular $329 iPad will be seen at this event, although it really looks like it could happen.
