  • No further details were revealed about the product 

The Apple AirPods Pro is one of the most successful products of the Cupertino company. In fact, Apple is suffering from a supply crunch these days because it could not match the demands of the product. A new report claims that the Cupertino company could be working on a new Apple AirPods Pro Lite.

A new report from the Taiwan-based publication Digitimes reveals that Apple is working with supply chain partners on some of its upcoming products, including the AirPods Pro Lite. The report also mentions other products like iMac, iPad, and Apple Watch, which are all due to release a new version this year. Digitimes does not further elaborate on the details of the Lite version of the AirPods Pro.

What Can We Expect From It?

The AirPods Pro Lite could be a version that does not feature the high-end specs of the AirPods Pro. It might drop the active noise cancellation, as well as, the adaptive equalization feature that many users love about the AirPods Pro. Since this is the “Lite” version, consumers could expect a relatively affordable price of the upcoming products compared to its Pro sibling.

Last Oct., Apple CEO Tim Cook looked at the AirPods Pro, not as a successor of the AirPods but a unique product line. During this time, the CEO could already be hinting at the product’s future iterations. Several days ago, we also heard rumors that the Cupertino company is working on a high-end over-ear headphone that could arrive later this year.

Other Details 

A few weeks ago, several sites reported that Apple is suffering from the AirPods Pro supply crunch. Tim Cook, when asked when the company could resolve the issue, was also uncertain and said that they were working to find a solution to this problem as soon as possible. At this point, nothing is confirmed yet about the AirPods Pro Lite.

But, there is a high probability that the product might arrive in the market soon, considering that Digitimes has been accurate in most of its reports. Apple might have a lot of plans for its wireless earbuds segment since the success of AirPods and AirPods Pro.
