Rumors of a larger 12-inch iPad have been swirling for months now, but we’ve yet to see any credible parts or renders. That may have just changed, though: renders of a larger rear iPad Pro shell, allegedly from a Foxconn factory.

The leaked images were posted by, a French site that is often on-the-nose with leaked details about upcoming Apple products. The main difference in the picture is it shows a speaker on the top of the iPad, near the home button, which would indicate true stereo sound in the iPad Pro even when placed horizontally. It could even indicate quadrophonic sound, with two speakers on both the top and bottom of the device. (In fact, this is what postulates.)

According to, the leaks come from a Foxconn factory worker, and represent a 3D rendering of the upcoming iPad Pro. They go on to say that the iPad Pro will be between 6.9 and 7.5 millimeters thick, with a screen size between 12.2 and 12.9 inches.

What do you think? Is this the next major addition to the iPad family? Let us know in the comments.
