Apple set to release AirPods Pro Lite

Lost Air Pods Pro Found in a Bag of Chips

"Apple, maintaining partnerships with supply chains in both Taiwan and China, may have its Taiwanese partners handle more production of new-generation ‌iPad‌, ‌Apple Watch‌, AirPod Pro Lite and ‌iMac‌ devices to be released later", DigiTimes wrote. If that is indeed the case, the AirPods Pro Lite could also be the replacement for the regular AirPods.

Apple is reportedly rumoured to be working on a new version of "AirPods Pro Lite" with its supply chain partners in Taiwan, according to a report by Taiwanese tech site DigiTimes (via MacRumors).

It's interesting to note that the product was spelled as AirPod Pro Lite and not AirPods in the report. 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.


While DigiTimes has some insight into Apple's upcoming products through its links with the supply chain, it isn't quite as accurate when it comes to specific details like names and product launch timelines. As per the report, the mention of these alleged AirPods Pro Lite is buried in a report that talks about how Apple is trying to ramp up production with partners in Taiwan as China is massively impacted by the widespread Coronavirus. The reports are only about the new gadgets to launch this year. And would the earbuds be priced cheaper than non-Pro models that are available? This is expected to be a low-cost alternative to the main AirPods Pro and may be low on some of the features as well.

There's never a bad time for cheap AirPods - these headphones are always popular and always expensive, so any discount we can get our hands on is much appreciated. Answers to those questions will have to wait for another day.
