An international regulator is showing five unannounced Apple Mac models running macOS Big Sur, although unusually, the new listing also includes multiple Macs and iOS devices that have previously been registered.
Four new entries in the Eurasian Economic Commission’s regulatory database together list a total of 64 Apple devices — though only five have not appeared before. It’s unusual to see so many re-listings, and the EEC database does not explain them, but the new devices are required to be listed before they can go on sale.
All five of the entirely new entries are Macs listed, in translation, as “personal computers of the Apple trademark, and spare parts for it.” They are running “macOS software version 11.0.” These new devices have the model numbers A2348, A2438, A2439, A2337, and A2338.
Also listed and not yet released are Macs with macOS Big Sur model numbers A2147, A2158, and A2182. These three were previously listed on the EEC database in June 2019.
Given that this original date comes before the release of macOS Catalina, it’s possible that the re-listings are all to do with the devices now being registered as coming with macOS Big Sur installed.
Similarly, the EEC database shows 39 iOS devices as being new, but all are either existing devices or if they are yet to be released, have previously been listed. The nine iOS devices that have yet to be released were all listed in June 2020.
It’s likely that these refreshed iOS listings are in reality for the “iPhone 12” range that is expected to be launched at Apple’s “Hi, Speed” event. The timing of the re-listing is likely to be coincidence, however, and there is
Apple has debuted the iPhone 12 in four models with 5G connectivity for mobile internet. These models are:
- iPhone 12 mini, smaller than the iPhone 8 but has a 5.4″ screen. It starts at $699.

An OLED screen will be featured across the entire lineup. The main iPhone 12 will have a dual camera system. The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max
No wall adapter will be included in the box with the new phones, as well as removing any headphones. This move, Apple said, is made for environmental reasons. It will still include a USB-C to Lightning power cable.
The iPhone 12 will have a 6-core CPU and 4-core GPU with the company’s proprietary A14 bionic chip. It is the same chip that is in Apple’s iPad Air that was announced in September.
The main phone will have a dual-camera system with an f/2.4 aperture on its ultra-wide lens, 13 mm focal length and 120-degree field of view. The wide-angle lens will have an f/1.6 aperture, 26 mm focal length and optical image stabilization. Night mode will be available on all iPhone models for the first time.

Goldman Sachs senior strategist warns stocks could see ‘considerable’ pre-election downside that isn’t being factored into models
- Goldman Sachs’ Abby Joseph Cohen told Bloomberg on Thursday that markets could see “considerable downside” before the election due to factors that financial models aren’t picking up.
- These factors include the outcome of the election and what Congress and the president will do next before election day, Cohen said.
- The senior investment strategist added that the market is vulnerable to volatility and disappointment given the”wide gaps” in the relative valuation of stocks.
Goldman Sachs’ Abby Joseph Cohen told Bloomberg on Thursday that markets could soon see “considerable downside” based on factors that financial models cannot predict.
What Congress will do next, what the president will say, and how the election will end cannot be forecasted by modeling, the senior investment strategist said.
“Those of us who have lived our professional lives really focusing in on the math, I think should feel very humble right now,” Cohen said. “Because what we recognize is that the models may not be able to properly reflect all of the volatility not just in the markets, but in the economy, in policy, and of course in investor sentiment.”

While Cohen said that it’s not unusual for volatility to rise before an election, there’s also been “erratic movement” with regard to fiscal policy. Stocks quickly sold off on Tuesday after Trump tweeted that negotiations for the next stimulus plan would be halted until the election.
The famed strategist also said there are “wide gaps” in the relative valuation of stocks. Just a handful of stocks drove the market’s record rally following its March lows. Cohen said this can make the market more volatile, and
