    By now, you've probably heard about a countless number of iPad Pro rumors. But we know that when there's a lot of hearsay and talk surrounding an upcoming, but not announced product from Apple, it most likely points to the fact that we're talking about a real device.

    And we know have some fresh data to share with those that believe a bigger-sized iPad is on the cards. French publication NoWhereElse has managed to obtain a new picture of the iPad Pro which seems to depict an additional speaker grille space at the top of the device next to the lock button.

    If this turns out to be true, then Apple's larger tablet could include a more powerful speaker array. And it makes sense, since the device is said to have a size between 12-2 and 12-9 inch, which represents an increase of around 30 percent. So, naturally, in order for the sound to be just as fluid, you need more speakers.

    The image is said to have been captured from a Foxconn factory by a worker. However, the image seems to represent an alleged 3D rendering of the anticipated device, which means it hasn't entered production yet.

    An additional speaker on the iPad Pro would also allow users to hear stereo sound from the device regardless of whether it is used in portrait or landscape orientation. The report also mentioned that the new, larger iPad is expected to be between 6.9 and 7.5 millimeters thick, with a screen size between 12.2 and 12.9 inches.

    Sounds intetesting. I'm pretty content with my Air and it's size but next time around the pro has some potential. Better speakers would be welcomed on the iPad in general. They really aren't that good.

    Upgrade in speakers? I was always disapointed with the speaker of my iPad 2, but not worth it. The size of my iPad is just perfect.

    Decent (forget good) speaker quality in a tablet would mean adding an inch or so to the bezel, or making the device significantly thicker. You don't get good speakers into that small of a space.

    That's not to say the iPad's speakers couldn't be better. There's always better. It's just a question of whether it's can get better enough to justify the compromises, like price or size.
