Looking to make an upgrade on your iPad? Then Japanese blog Macotakara might have some welcome news for you. According to their sources, Apple will be readying three different sized variants of its iPad Pro tablet next year.

At the moment, consumers have the choice of either the 12.9" iPad Pro or 9.7" model. The reported third offering will add a 7.9" version to the mix, prompting Macotakara to christen it the iPad Pro mini, with the current iPad mini featuring the same screen dimensions.

Along with adding a new model to the lineup, Apple is also said to be revamping the smaller 9.7" iPad Pro, opting for a slightly larger 10.5" design instead, according to the The Verge. Such a move would make sense, especially as it would give consumers more options in terms of different tablet sizes.  

For now, whether these new iPad Pros will sport headphone jack-less designs like the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, remains to be seen, but Macotakara noted that we may see them during Q2 next year.
