Apple (AAPL) certainly seems committed to the idea that bigger is better.

The tech giant reportedly plans to introduce a larger version of its iPad early next year. That’s according to a Bloomberg report, which cites anonymous sources saying that a new iPad measuring 12.9 inches diagonally is set to go into production in the first quarter of 2015.

Apple’s current iPads come with 7.9-inch or 9.7-inch displays. New versions in those sizes are expected to be unveiled early next month at a much-hyped, but as yet unconfirmed Apple event, according to a recent report.

The company is also expected to use the occasion to premiere its iPhone 6, including a model with a bigger 5.5- inch screen. Currently iPhone 5s models have a 4.9-inch screen.

Rumors of a larger iPad called the “iPad Pro” emerged last summer, but MacRumors later reported that the company had put those plans on hold.
