Apple may be working on cheaper version of AirPods Pro

Apple Reportedly Working on 'AirPod Pro Lite' Earphones

Apple Reportedly Working on 'AirPod Pro Lite' Earphones

While DigiTimes often has some insight into Apple's product pipeline through the supply chain, the publication is less accurate when it comes to specific details like product naming and timing, so it's possible these could be a third generation of the regular ‌AirPods‌, but we'll have to wait for additional rumors to surface before we have a better picture of what to expect.

But it'll be interesting to see if Apple will bring the better fit of the $249 AirPods Pro to a cheaper pair of truly wireless earbuds.

Taiwanese tech site DigiTimes (via MacRumors) name-dropped the AirPods Pro Lite in a report about Apple shifting the production of certain devices - the iPad, Apple Watch and iMac - to Taiwan as the Coronavirus causes disruptions in China.

Boss added: 'When certain Federal Bureau of Investigation agencies are looking for you, they are going to block the airport. You can write a fiction story but this is not a fiction. "This is facts through certain people I know", said Boss.

Apple's AirPod Pro headphones were launched a year ago, 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. It also comes with a charging case, and if you factor in the built-in battery, Apple claims the AirPods Pro can last up to 24 hours per charge before needing to hunt down a wall outlet.

AirPods Pro for the masses? Also, the fact that there's just $50 separating the AirPods Pro and the AirPods 2 with wireless charging case, the chances of an AirPod Pro Lite happening anytime soon seem even slimmer. Depending on where pricing lands, and what features get stripped for a cheaper price tag, an AirPods Pro Lite SKU could have mass appeal.

We don't know anything about these AirPods Pro Lite, but judging by the name they could be a more affordable version of the popular AirPods Pro earbuds. Only time will tell if Apple is indeed working on developing new products with Taiwan while being in the middle of the virus outbreak. 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.
