Following an influx of rumors surrounding the "iPad Pro" and a possible stylus accessory launching around the same time, well-known 3D modeler and designer Martin Hajek has created a series of concept renderings for each device on his blog.

Hajek's models include several details rumored for the iPad Pro, which has been claimed to carry a 12.2 - 12.9 inch display and fall in line with the rounded design of the current iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3. The renderings are based on some design drawings that surfaced last November, with Hajek noting the design brings back the larger bezels seen in earlier-generation iPads. Consistent with the schematics and other rumors, he also places speakers on the top and bottom and edges of the device, allowing for stereo sound when used in landscape orientation.

Otherwise, the iPad Pro sticks by most of the current-generation standbys, including volume rockers on the right side of the device, a lock button on the top right, a Lightning charger on its bottom center, and a Touch ID capacitive home button sitting in its normal central position.

Beyond the iPad Pro itself, Hajek also imagines a possibility for Apple's rumored in-house stylus. Borrowing "the design language of the iPad Pro", he added in a capacitive +/- slider for additional operations, and also elements of the Apple Watch as well, including biometric sensors and a digital crown. While the stylus renderings are interesting, a lack of leaks or even specific details about the accessory means the images are not based on any actual information.

The new renderings show off the iPad Pro mostly in the Silver option, though it's likely to receive the other two usual color options of Space Gray and Gold. The latest rumors suggest the iPad Pro may launch sometime in the late spring or early summer of this year. The full suite of renderings featuring the iPad Pro and stylus can be found on Hajek's blog.

How in the world is this newsworthy? These renders aren't based on anything substantial. He just took an iPad 4, made it 12" and added a pen that may or may not look anything like an Apple stylus (assuming one is in the works).

The stylus won't glow.

Hm. 12 inch iPad? 12 inch MacBook? Anyone wondering if Apple might do a laptop/tablet hybrid like the Surface? Starting to wonder, because the leaked MacBook photos only showed the 'screen'.

I still don't believe that this product is going to be a reality. I can't imagine them selling more than a couple million.

Holy Bezel, Batman! No way Apple would do that.

Stylus: Looks nice, but I think any pen would have an eraser on the end, a la Asus and a few others.

Wow, that stylus looks almost exactly like my 90's era Mont Blanc metal bodied rollerball (I have one here on my desk and the similarity is striking). Cut out the Mont Blanc logo and paste in the Apple logo and there you have it.

And that tablet thing is seriously fugly, cheap Chinese knock-off fugly.

Martin, kind of rediculous to go through the work of mocking up a huge iPad Pro and keeping the same number of home icons as the iPad Mini. Come on...

Cool, the stylus has a digital crown. Wait until you see my rendition I am gonna do in Microsoft Paint. No seriously, you need to wait because I have to use VMWare to boot XP and it takes forever.
