Apple has registered new iPhone model numbers with the EEC, ahead of the iPhone 13 series presumed launch this autumn. The model numbers are brand-new and could only refer to upcoming iPhones.

Apple has registered new iPhone model numbers with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), the executive arm of the Eurasian Economic Union. Typically, Apple registers upcoming devices with the EEC a few months before launching them, as has also been the case with graphics card manufacturers.

So far, Apple has registered the following iPhone model numbers:

  • A2628
  • A2630
  • A2634
  • A2635
  • A2640
  • A2643
  • A2645

These model numbers do not correspond with current or old iPhones, although most recent models have started A2xx. In fact, Apple is yet to release an iPhone with a model number starting A26xx.

Presumably, these model numbers correlate to the iPhone 13 series, due in the autumn. Apple is expected to release five models, mirroring the iPhone 12 series, ranging from the iPhone 13 mini to the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Generally, the company assigns multiple model numbers to the same handset, often because it produces regional variants. Hence, we could not determine to which devices these model numbers refer. Nonetheless, the EEC listing demonstrates that Apple is closing in on releasing the iPhone 13 series and has finalised some of the series' model numbers, at least for Russia or Europe.
