A Spanish distributor has allegedly been provided details about a case from an unnamed manufacturer gambling on the imminent release of a new Apple 10.5-inch iPad.

The information tweeted by Twitter user Marc Alonso is heavily redacted, with document titles putting the 10.5-inch size in the iPad Pro line, as expected. Dimensions for the case aren't available, and are said in the graphic to be pending, awaiting a definitive announcement by Apple.

There have been no firm iPad casing leaks, or even much in the way of solid, consistent data about new iPads, other than the diagonal size of the screen.

Apple is rumored to announce a second-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro, a new 10.5-inch model, a cheaper 9.7-inch variant expected to replace iPad Air 2 and, curiously, a refreshed 7.9-inch iPad mini.

Rumblings of a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro first surfaced in August when predictions emerged that the device would replace the current 9.7-inch iPad Pro as Apple's flagship tablet.

More recent rumors suggest the 10.5-inch tablet might arrive without side bezels, a design choice that could allow Apple to squeeze a larger display into a device with dimensions similar to the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

While reports disagree on a launch timeline for the supposed 10.5-inch iPad Pro, Apple and its reseller network are experiencing stockouts of the largest 12.9-inch model. The tablet, unveiled in September 2015, is long overdue for a refresh.
