Rumor | Apple just might resurrect its Time Capsule at the 2021 iPad and iPad Mini event
Apple dedicated part of its latest Special Event to its 2021 iPad Pro: therefore, the next one might have scope for the sixth-gen iPad Mini and ninth-gen iPad. This idea may have been given more weight by a new leak from the EEC device-certification authority.
It has reportedly approved a number of new Apple model numbers, associated with tablets registered as running on iPadOS 14. This sequence of new product identifiers runs as follows: A2459, A2460, A2461, A2567, A2568, A2569, A2377, A2378, A2588, A2589, A2602 and A2604.
The similarity between some of these numbers might hint at multiple variants of what could be 2, 3 or even 4 different tablets. Besides these intriguing new signs, the EEC has also registered what is described as an access port for the pre-existing AirPort Extreme, Time Capsule and Express.
For those who might have justifiably forgotten about these products, they were most recently on the market as Apple-brand Wi-Fi routers with extra functions such as hard-drive storage in some cases. Therefore, it now looks like this line might be making a comeback of sorts in 2021.
