As the name suggests, "AirPods Pro Lite" could be a lighter and less feature-filled version of the AirPods Pro. With AirPods Pro and the wireless charging case version of the second-generation AirPods just $50 apart, it's unclear why Apple would manufacture a Lite version of its headphones for a lower price. A cheaper version might be around the corner, ago, according to the latest unconfirmed chatter. It is advised that avid Apple users out there should look out for the company's announcements regarding this matter while it is only to be rumored at the moment, but without a doubt, if there is some truth to this device being worked on, "AirPods Pro-Lite" could also be another reason for Apple to elevate their name more when it comes to technology development.
If you're interested in the AirPods Pro, but don't want to shell out for their high price tag ($249 / £249 / AU$399) there might be a new product coming for you - as we've heard that Apple might be working on a "Lite" variant of the popular true wireless earbuds.More news: Japan confirms first death from coronavirus
It's interesting to note that the product was spelled as AirPod Pro Lite and not AirPods in the report.
The revelation came as reports from Taiwanese publication, Digitmes reporting Apple wanting to move production of some of its products to assembly lines in Taiwan out of fear of the deadly Coronavirus that is now affecting China and some parts of the globe. Apparently Apple is looking to "diversify production risks associated with the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak".More news: Blue Jackets’ Seth Jones out indefinitely with ankle injury
"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. Case in point- a guy tweeted that he had lost his AirPods Pro right earbud, which is nothing new. And would the earbuds be priced cheaper than non-Pro models that are available? Answers to those questions will have to wait for another day.More news: Flu Kills Another Child In Wisconsin; Problem With Coronavirus Test Kits
