Designer Martin Hajek has posted concept images of Apple’s long rumoured 12-inch iPad Pro and its companion stylus. The renders shown below are based on photos published by Japanese Apple magazine “MacFan” in December 2014.
The back of the larger device is similar to the current iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. The front of the iPad Pro takes design cues from Apple’s current iPad lineup, however, the designer suggests the bezels around the display will be larger.
Several reports have noted that the device will be between 6.9 and 7.5mm thick, and will feature four integrated speakers (two on top and two on the bottom). The iPad Pro is expected to feature a screen size of 12.9 inches along with an A8X processor, 2GB of RAM, and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
Along with the concept images of the iPad Pro, Hajek also came up with a simple design for the rumoured companion stylus. The stylus features a capacitive +/- slider for various operations, bio-sensors (taken from the back of the Apple Watch), and a digital crown for additional operations.
The release date for Apple’s larger-screened iPad is still unknown. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested that production would begin sometime in the second quarter of 2015 due to the increased attention on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus production.
