Apple registers 11 new iPhone models in Eurasian regulatory database

“Like clockwork the past few years, Apple devices have been showing up in the Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory database ahead of their official announcement and release,” Benjamin Mayo reports for 9to5Mac.

“The 2019 iPhones have just appeared in this database with model numbers A2111, A2160, A2161, A2215, A2216, A2217, A2218, A2219, A2220, A2221, and A2223,” Mayo reports. “In January, the iPad Air and iPad mini 5 were registered a few months ahead of their official launch.”

“The filing describes the eleven device SKUs as ‘Apple smartphones,'” Mayo reports. “There are so many as Apple sells different variants of the iPhone in different geographies, offering alternative cellular band compatibility and a physical dual SIM phone for China.”

  1. I think this is going to be another less than spectacular year for Apple. Given no 5G compatibility in this year‘s model I just have a feeling many people will hold off from purchasing one this year and wait until next year. For me, I don’t feel like I need a new iPhone and would prefer to wait until a 5G model becomes available. It also doesn’t mean for me that I absolutely plan on paying $10 or more a month for 5G but to be current would only make sense
