Last week a new rumor appeared that we did not expect, apparently Apple is working on a cheaper version of the AirPods Pro. According to the report of Digitimes these ‘AirPods Pro Lite’ will be launched in the second half of this 2020 and they will arrive with lower characteristics and a more affordable price.
Now again Digitimes, has completed part of this information ensuring that, although Apple had planned to begin production of these new AirPods in the second quarter of this year, it has been forced to delay this start of production.
‘AirPods Pro Lite’ are delayed
Although we don't really have more information about these new ‘AirPods Pro Lite’, we understand that they will have a design similar to that of the AirPods Pro and to give up some of its star functions, such as noise cancellation. This way Apple will adjust its price, although we don't know what will happen with the AirPods 2.
This is only mere speculation, since no media or analyst has given information about these ‘AirPods Pro Lite’, however Digitimes He has insisted on this device and its delay.
"The production of AirPods Pro Lite, a basic version of Apple's AirPods Pro series, is unlikely to begin in the second quarter as originally planned, according to industry sources."
At the moment little more is known about this new generation of AirPods, although if this information is true we should not wait for a launch until the end of the year. The first generation of AirPods was presented in September 2016 along with the iPhone 7, it took more than two years until Apple launched the second generation, in March last year. Finally in October the new AirPods Pro, a higher version, were introduced.
Watching the great reception that the AirPods have had, and that it is a market in full expansion, it does not surprise us that Apple wants to diversify its range of headphones. We will see at the end of the year whether or not we end up seeing some ‘AirPods Pro Lite’.
