Apple AirPods headphones are extremely popular. And that’s a no-brainer. Logically enough, the Cupertino company capitalizes a lot on this product.
Apple has pulled it off perfectly with its true wireless AirPods headphones. Since the first generation, these headphones have been extremely popular, so much so that breakages are quite frequent with each launch. The Cupertino company would ultimately be wrong not to multiply models to multiply income. A new reference could thus arrive at the beginning of 2021.
Any Apple AirPods Pro Lite for next year?
A few months ago, we learned that Apple could be hard at work on a new model of AirPods, a model that would be located between AirPods and AirPods Pro, a model that could be dubbed AirPods Pro Lite. The first rumors suggested a possible launch in the summer of 2020 but it is clear that this did not happen.
Today, according to a report from The Elec, it looks like these AirPods Pro Lite are now due in the first half of 2021, with a public price of $ 200. The report also shares a number of interesting pieces of information regarding the headphones, including the fact that Apple initially planned to launch these AirPods Pro Lite right after the AirPods Pro.
This is what The Elec understands
That being said, the Cupertino company finally had to change its mind and postpone the launch of these AirPods Pro Lite when the Pro version was selling much better than expected. If this information is true, then it would be logical that Apple did not wish to “disrupt”, so to speak, the sales of the Pro model with the launch of a more affordable model which could have cannibalized sales. .
Still, if the price of $ 200 is true, it means that these AirPods Pro Lite would cost $ 50 less than the AirPods Pro. What features can you expect in this model? Hard to say. But for now, without official communication from Apple on the subject, this new information will have to be taken as a mere rumor. To be continued !
