If true, the iPad will be an excellent addition to Apple's 7.9-inch and 9.7-inch tablets.

Apple is reportedly planning to launch a 12.9-inch iPad, the company's largest tablet yet, according to Bloomberg. Sources, who asked not to be named, told the media company that Apple will begin manufacturing the said tablet in the first quarter of next year.

If true, the iPad will be an excellent addition to Apple's 7.9-inch and 9.7-inch tablets. Unlike the company's iPhone business, tablet sales declined in the past two quarters, although CEO Tim Cook blamed it on the company's changes to its channel inventory.

IDC analyst Jitesh Ubrani expects the tablet industry to grow, particularly in the enterprise market. That makes sense, considering tablets are now being used more often in schools, governments, and businesses. Compared to desktop PCs, tablets are lighter and compact.

In addition, Bloomberg is also confirming that Apple is working on two larger iPhones, with a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens. Apple is also expected to announce an updated 9.7-inch iPad, an iPad mini, and iWatch.
