AirPods are the best-selling Apple products at the moment and they are most of the time out of stock, which is why the company wants to increase the production and the lighter version of AirPods Pro will be a good way to balance things. Here are more details on AirPods Pro Lite release date, specs, features and price for the budget Apple earbuds.
AirPods Pro Lite Specs and Features: Affordable Earbuds Version
AirPods Pro Lite will be similar to the AirPods Pro but won’t have the high-end specs such as active noise cancellation and adaptive equalization. One can expect them to use lighter materials, and having an average build quality. Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple announced last year that they will be working on other AirPods, which won’t be a successor of the previous models, but will be a unique product line.
There are also rumors that Apple is working on a high-end over the ear headphones which will arrive later this year. It goes with the report that Apple will have a biannual release pattern from 2020, mid-range products in the first half and premium devices in the second half. Apple AirPods Pro Lite could be launched in the first quarter of 2020, making them the first affordable mid-range wireless earbuds.
Apple AirPods Pro Lite Release Date and Price
Apple could release the AirPods Pro Lite along with the rumored iPhone / iPhone 9 in their upcoming March event. If the rumors are to be believed, the tech giant is planning a big event in March 2020 where they unveil all their new products slated to launch in the first half of the year. AirPods Pro Lite will be affordable but that doesn’t mean it would come cheap, it could easily be priced around $150 or more.
