Apple has confirmed that it is working on releasing an AirPods Pro ‘Lite’ version.
According to the reports, a new variant of the popular TWS earbuds from the company arrives without its popular active noise canceling feature and is expected to launch at a lower price tag.
The Cupertino based giant is working on such a product to expand its presence in the wireless earphones market, which has grown immensely in recent times. The report states that the Lite variant of the AirPods Pro without the noise cancelling feature will launch sometime within the first half of next year.
At the moment, the company is developing a system-in-package (SiP) product containing ‘H1’, an AirPod audio driver chip, through a domestic materials partner.
The upcoming Lite variant is expected to feature a simple square design.
It is scheduled to undergo quality verification within this year and start production in 2021, the price of these new hearables will be around 20 percent lower than the price of the AirPods Pro that arrives with the active noise cancelling technology.
