A slew of new Apple products are on the way, if the latest iOS beta is to be believed.

Four new versions of the iPad are referenced in the iOS 12.2 beta, according to developer Steve Troughton-Smith, who made the discovery. The iPads are designated as iPad 11,1 to iPad 11,4 and include two WiFi and two cellular versions.

In theory, iOS 12.2 references four new iPads in WiFi & Cellular variants (perhaps mini, and 9.7″?), all without Face ID, and a (seventh-gen?) iPod touch with no Touch ID nor Face ID

Troughton-Smith says that the iPad models mentioned in the iOS beta do not match currently released devices. He also explains that the iPads referenced do not have Face ID, leading him to speculate that these may very well be new iPad Minis.

However, a new 10-inch iPad could be released along with a refreshed line of Minis as well. A report last week found seven new iPad models running ioS 12 had recently received certification from the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC).

Also found within iOS 12.2 is a mention of an iPod 9,1. MacRumors points out that the current generation of the iPod Touch is referred to as iPod 7,1 meaning a new version of the device may also soon be on the way.

Just earlier this month, a report said that two Apple suppliers were producing touchscreens for two new iPads: a new entry-level iPad and a new iPad Mini, which hasn’t seen an update since September 2015. A separate report found that another device that hasn’t been refreshed since 2015, the iPod Touch, was also going to see a next generation model released this year.

Couple with the latest AirPods 2 rumors, it’s looking more and more like Apple will have some new product announcements to coincide with the official release of iOS 12.2 in the next few months.
