The AirPods are one of the devices that are having more success today and for that reason Apple reinforced in 2019 its entire range of 100% wireless headphones. At the beginning of the year we saw the arrival of the AirPods 2 in two different versions, one with a carrying case, and in the second half of 2019 the AirPods Pro arrived, a Leap forward with new features and features.
Since then we haven't heard any other rumors about the AirPods, until now. According to the media Digitimes, Apple is working on new AirPods to which have called ‘AirPods Pro Lite’ that may come this year and revolutionize this product category.
AirPods Pro ‘Lite’ in this 2020
The mention made by the medium of this new model is not that it is very deep and comes in a report that talks about other possible devices of the company that will be launched this year. This information ensures that releases of these devices may be delayed at the end of the year due to the coronavirus epidemic in China and that Taiwn could occupy an important place.
"Apple, which maintains partnerships with supply chains in Taiwn and China, can make its Taiwanese partners handle the production of new-generation iPad, Apple Watch, AirPod Pro Lite and iMac devices to be launched later, as the epidemic has increased the risk of raw materials. The shortage of supply and interruptions of shipments arising from the uncertain resumption of normal operations in suppliers of components and assembly plants in China".
We have nothing clear what it means DigiTimes with “AirPod Pro Lite”, in theory it should be a version similar to the AirPods Pro but with fewer functions, perhaps eliminating active noise cancellation. But for that Apple already has the normal AirPods, which barely cost 50 euros less (those with wireless charge).
In case Apple launched them there will probably be a restructuring of the range, the AirPods 2 disappearing without a wireless charging case and the wireless charging model takes its place. The "AirPod Pro Lite" will take the place of these last ones. an approximate price of 229 euros, 50 euros less than the AirPods Pro.
However all these are mere speculations since we have no more information apart from the mention of the device that makes Digitimes. But it will not surprise us that Apple continued to reinforce its range of headphones, the “AirPods Studio” headband is also highly anticipated.
