A recent report from Nowhereelse.fr claims to show an internal sketch of the iPad Pro, the rumored 12.2 inch iPad Apple is supposedly working on.

According to the sketch, purportedly sourced from a Foxconn employee, the iPad Pro will be between 6.9 and 7.5 mm thick and will sport four speaker modules. Indeed, this jibes with previous reports claiming that the iPad Pro will feature stereo speakers.

As for a release date, well, that remains up in the air. Recall that early reports last year claimed that the iPad Pro would see the light of day this past Fall. But when the dust settled following Apple's media event a few months ago, the only iPad updates to speak of were the iPad Air 2 and a mildly revamped iPad Mini. Most recently, reports have claimed that the rumored iPad Pro will see the light of day during the second half of 2015. On this note, the typically reliable Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities relayed that production won't likely begin until the second quarter of 2015. If that pans out, we likely won't be able to get our hands on the rumored iPad Pro until sometime in late spring or early summer.

As for other details regarding Apple's rumored tablet, previous reports have suggested that the device will feature 2GB of RAM and an A8X processor.
