The Cupertino-based tech giant is currently working on a budget variant of the earbuds. The next model would target the mid-range market, just as iPhone SE 2 will.
There are many rumors on the internet, and some of them are faulty, so we need to take this with a pinch of salt. We are here to tell you all we know so far about it.
The cheaper version is in works
Apple has had in its plans for quite some time to release a cheaper model of AirPods since they launched AirPods Pro. They really surprised us when launching two AirPods in the same year, and AirPods Pro was quite expensive, with a price of $249. But even with this price, they were a success, thanks to the noise cancellation features. Ever since that, we have started to hear more and more about this budget variant.
The word ‘Lite’ has been mentioned in every rumor on the internet, but we shall take it with a pinch of salt, as we do with all the rumors out there. If Apple is offering these cheap earbuds, they might change the market.
What are the stock issues at Apple?
People need this lite variant, not only because they might be cheaper, but because the Pro earbuds are mostly out of stocks. Apple has found it hard to maintain the production schedule because there are so many people out there who want the AirPods Pro earbuds.
This version will also allow Apple to remove the headphone jacks from their products. AirPods Lite will probably not have the active noise cancellation feature, and they will use low-quality material, but it will be solid and will make the product perfect.
