Apple is now rumored to delay the new "lite" version of AirPods Pro
A new, "lite" version of the AirPods Pro was last rumored to be unveiled next month, alongside a 13-inch MacBook Pro, though if the unconfirmed claims are correct, Apple may be shelving the cheaper AirPods Pro for a later date.
The so-called AirPods Pro Lite have been reported on by Taiwanese publication DigiTimes for a few months now, with local supplier Universal Scientific Industrial (USI) reportedly trying to gain backend orders relating to the unconfirmed earbuds.
The AirPods Pro Lite are to be Apple's entry-level true wireless stereo headphones offering, with a speculated price of around $129, similar in idea to the new iPhone SE, being an identical in design, cheaper and downgraded version of a flagship Apple product.
We also reported on Apple preparing a more affordable and smaller HomePod for release, which may also help increase the initially disappointing HomePod sales. This will add to the Cupertino company's recent trend of offering affordable versions of their products alongside with the flagships.
