The hunger for new products from Apple is almost insatiable. Rumors continually fly concerning what steps the Cupertino giant will take next. According to Japanese website Mac Otakara, those steps involve the iPad Pro, iPhone SE, and iPhone 7.

Speculation has it that Apple will update the iPad Pro line with several new sizes: updated 7.9-inch, 9.7-inch, 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch models are all in the works. While Apple currently sells a 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch version of the iPad Pro, the rumored 7.9-inch device could replace the iPad Mini completely. Apple has supposedly killed the Macbook Air line in lieu of the 12-inch Macbook; a move to dethrone the iPad Mini as Cupertino’s chief small form factor tablet would not be out of the ordinary. The 7.9-inch iPad Pro would feature a Smart Connector, four speakers, and a 12 MP camera like its bigger siblings.

The interesting model to watch is the supposed 10.5-inch model. Mac Otakara has stated that this flavor of iPad Pro will have the same footprint as the 9.7-inch model thanks to a new edge-to-edge display. In a world with increasingly narrow bezels (á la the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge), Apple’s products have met with some criticism on the size of their sides. A thin-bezelled iPad Pro would be a new direction for the device line as a whole and would be interesting to see.

The report also claimed that a 128 GB option for the iPhone SE was coming as well as a new red color option for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. It should be noted that Mac Otakara has a decent track record with guessing the next Apple products, but as with all rumors, nothing is firm until it’s officially announced by the tech giant itself.
