Apple is Planning to Bring Back the iPod Touch in 2019

The folks over at MacRumours first reported on the handful of iOS 12.2 beta references revealing the existence of four new iPads.

The iPad 11.1, iPad 11.2, iPad 11.3 and iPad 11.4 designations all relate to WiFi and cellular models but each lack in Face ID.

This code also references the new iPod touch. The TrueDepth camera technology associated with Face ID would warrant a thorough redesign, one that hews off the slates' "chin" region where the Touch ID home button is now found. The new iPad can get 10-inch screen with a thinner framework is now used 9.7-inch. To retain symmetry, the incorporate of TrueDepth camera technology would also necessitate the removal of the forehead section that supports Apple's front-facing FaceTime camera.

One such device is Apple's rumoured new range of more affordable iPads, which the company is expected to announce in the next few weeks.

Doncic's three-pointer made it 104-99 before the Raptors made their charge to grab the much-needed victory. The Dallas Mavericks suffered a home defeat to the Toronto Raptors despite the Slovenian's triple-double.

While this would possibly reduce the price of iPads, it would also mean that users can not use any sort of biometrics since Apple has already chose to remove Touch ID from iPads.

Apple will release a budget version of the iPad that will not be the scanner face ID. According to the forecast, Apple could release the iPad mini 5 early this year, while the entry-level iPad could follow this schedule as well. The mini has not received a makeover since 2015 now.

But beyond a low-priced iPad and a new, faster iPod touch, there might be more up Apple's sleeve. The sixth generation of iPod Touch is available in Apple's Store and it is one of the devices that helped Apple become the giant tech company that it is today.
