The report further added that the production of the tablet had been scheduled to start this quarter.
The production of Apple’s larger 12.9-inch tablet will apparently be called iPad Pro was to start last year. However, it was delayed due to excessive demand for the iPhone 6 Plus. Apple has achieved record-breaking numbers with its new iPhone 6 models, and even managed to dethrone Samsung from the top spot.

A KGI report by Ming-Chi Kuo in January revealed that the Cupertino Company is working on a new stylus for its iPad products. It was highly speculated that the new iPad Pro along with the stylus will be launched sometime in the second quarter of this year. The stylus is expected to charge using the Lightening cable and be made available with the large iPad as an optional accessory.
