It’s been two months since Apple debuted the redesigned M4 iPad Pro and the updated M2 iPad Air. However, we may already know what the Cupertino team has in store for us in 2025 thanks to a recent leak of the device’s identity.

Details spotted by Nicolás Álvarez and shared by @aaronp613 on X suggest that four new iPad models are in the works. Wi-Fi and cellular editions are coming soon. These devices include:

• iPad15,7 – A16 11th Gen iPad Wi-Fi
• iPad15,8 – A16 11th Gen iPad Celular
• iPad16,1 – A17 iPad mini 7th Gen Wi-Fi
• iPad16,2 – A17 iPad mini 7th Gen Cellular
• iPad17,1 – M5 11-inch Pro Wi-Fi
• iPad17,2 – M5 11-inch Pro Cellular
• iPad17,3 – M5 13-inch Pro Wi-Fi
• iPad17,4 – M5 13-inch Pro Cellular

The AppleDB team made some educated guesses about what model the code identifiers correspond to, based solely on the details of the leak. These are just speculations at this point, but given Apple’s penchant for following code identifiers, they could turn out to be very accurate.

The codes are often less than the price of the chip inside the device. For example, iPad (2022) is recognized as iPad 13,18 and iPad 13,19 because it has an A14 chip. The same group was able to detect four upcoming iPhones due to this trend, which could be released soon.

Similar methods are used in devices with Apple ‘M’ SoCs, but from different angles; The 13-inch iPad Air (M2) is known as the iPad 14,10 and iPad 14,11, while the 13-inch iPad Pro (M4) is known as the iPad 16,5 and iPad 16,6. is called. So, it makes sense to assume that the iPad 17,3 and 17,4 are tablets with M5 processors.

So, it looks like new iPad, iPad mini, and iPad Pro models could be on the horizon based on the identifiers discovered so far. Apple has updated a few iPad models this year, so it’s unlikely we’ll see another round anytime soon. New models are most likely to arrive in 2025.

Of course, the software is just as important as the hardware that powers the tablet. This year’s WWDC gave us our first look at iPadOS 18, and it appears that significant performance improvements — including the introduction of Apple Intelligence for tablets with M processors — are in store for several current iPad models.
