Developer Steven Troughton-Smith has discovered references to four new iPad models, ranging from iPad 11.1 to iPad 11.4 two of them are WiFi and two of them are mobile. These model numbers do not match a well-known iPad model.
Troughton-Smith speculates that the iPad model numbers could be new iPad mini-devices, which would stand in the works with rumors suggesting a new iPad Mini 5. According to Troughton-Smith, none of the iPads has a face ID. This is what we would expect as a new iPad iPad which is likely to be positioned as an affordable lower-end device.
There is also a reference to "iPod 9.1
Earlier rumors suggest that Apple is working on an iPod touch 7th generation iPad mini 5 and a new version of the cheaper 9.7 inch iPad which can actually be upgraded to 10 inches in the next iteration.

We first heard of Apple's work on a new iPad at the end of 2018, and since then the Chatter has strengthened again. Rumors suggest that a fifth generation iPad will be launched in the first half of 2019. The ads appear in iOS 12 .2 and in the Eurasian database (where Apple is required) to register all new devices), this prediction sounds more accurate.
There was mixed information on what to expect from a iPad mini-update. A fall leak indicated a vertical camera and quad speakers, but a photograph of an unpublished iPad mini, which could be the new iPad mini, contained an older one A9 processor and similar design to the fourth generation iPad mini.

We need to wait for additional information to find out what the iPad is. Mini is included, but it sounds like it's more like the current 9.7-inch iPad than an iPad Pro. As a start date, it looks like it might happen when iOS 12 .2 is released, maybe in late February or early March. At the same time, the rumored iPod touch of the 7th generation could be released.

for the Apple in March for the last few Events has held years, so it would be no surprise to see another event in March 2019.
