We only have a short time to wait until Apple finally unveils its new entry-level iPad and the first iPad mini update in four years.

Both the Apple iPad and iPad mini 5 have popped up on a certification document posted on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website.

It lists two model numbers, A2124 and A2133, thought to refer to the new devices. Their appearance at this stage suggests release has been approved in India and they are surely soon to be launched.

The listing, spotted by MySmartPrice, follows similar certification details seen on the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website at the end of January. The exact same model numbers appeared there too.

No other details are apparent from either "leak", however, aside from the listed manufacturer being revealed as Hong Fu Jim Precision Electronics.

There is no specific date yet for the big reveal, although current thinking suggests that they simply could appear on the Apple Store without much hurrah - just a press release sent to us and other press members.

Apple is thought to be hosting an event at the end of next month, possibly 25 or 26 March, but that is said to focus on services and software not hardware.
