American manufacturing giant, Apple, is about to run riot in the tablet and smartwatch market. The tablet market is not too lucrative and Apple has a firm grip on the market. The market got some attention during the peak of the pandemic but that is not the case presently. As for the smartwatch market, it is more competitive. However, Apple has carved a niche for itself. According to speculations, the company is getting set to unveil seven Apple iPads & eight Watch Series 6′ models.
According to information on Eurasian Economic Commission’s website, seven new iPads and eight new Apple Watch Series 6 are on their way. Their appearance on the EEC website suggests that their official launch is not far away.
As of now, what we can see is seven new iPad SKUs. The most probable situation is that one or more models will arrive with multiple configurations. The new filings with the EEC spotted by Consomac show the iPads as running iPadOS 14. Furthermore, the smartwatches are all running watchOS 7.

Unfortunately, the EEC listing does not contain detailed specifications of these devices. However, each of these devices comes with its own Apple identification number. These devices are probably new with a few changes from one model to another. None of the model numbers have been filled on ECC before thus they are not an upgrade of a pre-existing device.

We strongly believe that the official launch of these devices is very close. However, it is pertinent to note that the arrival of a device on the EEC database is not a guarantee for release. Nevertheless, it is most unlikely for Apple to register a product with EEC and not launch it. All Apple products go through EEC so it is technically a prerequisite for launch.
As of now, there is no indication of the exact launch date for these devices. Nevertheless, Apple’s iPad that arrived at EEC in June eventually hit the market in September. Going by this timeframe, we expect these devices to be available in September or October.
Recall that the iPhone 12 series will arrive probably in October or November due to the delay by a few weeks. These devices may also arrive with the latest iPhone 12 series. However, there are also reports that Apple will hold a press conference where it will release its latest Watch Series 6.
