Apple Reportedly Working on 'AirPod Pro Lite' Earphones

Apple may release Airpods Pro Lite

That followed the launch of second-generation regular AirPods in March 2019, and with only $50 separating the ‌AirPods Pro‌ from the wireless case version of the regular ‌AirPods‌, we're not sure how a "Lite" version of the ‌AirPods Pro‌ would fit into Apple's lineup. The non-Pro models run $159 with charging case, or $199 with a wireless charging case. However, now once again, Apple is working on its new AirPods Pro Lite, which will be launched this year. If the report turns out to be accurate then we can expect an AirPods Pro variant that could be affordable to a larger user base. No information on potential pricing is available, however, so we are left to guess where the new earbuds could end up. Only time will tell if Apple is indeed working on developing new products with Taiwan while being in the middle of the virus outbreak. To diversify its production capabilities, according to a report by DigiTimes, Apple is now thinking of shifting the production of a few portfolio products to their factories in Taiwan.

Apple's AirPod Pro headphones were launched previous year, the headphones cost around $100 more than the standard AirPod headphones, according to a recent report there are some new AirPod Pro Lite headphones in the works. As luck would have it, Walmart's got a great offer on the latest model of Apple AirPods with a Charging Case for $139 (which is $20 less than normal).

No, Apple isn't going to make the AirPods Pro cheaper by giving it a price cut. Axing the noise cancelling technology seems logical, though would it still be deserving or the "Pro" moniker? But Tim Cook's comments back in October suggest that the AirPods Pro is a distinct line of its own and doesn't sit with the regular AirPods. Answers to those questions will have to wait for another day.
