As the name suggests, "AirPods Pro Lite" could be a lighter and less feature-filled version of the AirPods Pro. The non-Pro models run $159 with charging case, or $199 with a wireless charging case. A cheaper version might be around the corner, ago, according to the latest unconfirmed chatter.

Another rumoured evidence to support this is due to the coronavirus outbreak, it's said that Apple might move their factory to Taiwan and start with the next generation of iMac, iPad, Apple Watch and the AirPods Pro Lite.

It's interesting to note that the product was spelled as AirPod Pro Lite and not AirPods in the report. No information on potential pricing is available, however, so we are left to guess where the new earbuds could end up.

This comes from Taiwan news site Digitimes, which has published a report on Apple product assembly lines in the country.

While DigiTimes often has some insight into Apple's product pipeline through the supply chain, the publication is less accurate when it comes to specific details like product naming and timing, so it's possible these could be a third generation of the regular ‌AirPods‌, but we'll have to wait for additional rumors to surface before we have a better picture of what to expect. The reports are only about the new gadgets to launch this year. They offer active noise cancellation technology, three different ear tip sizes, and up to 5 hours of listening time (or 4.5 hours with active noise cancellation enabled). It is being told that AirPods Pro Lite will be an upgrade version of AirPods launched in the year 2018. Lost AirPods can be located using the Find My app and iCloud, to which sound will emanate from the earbuds, but Sigmon said he thought it only worked on the case and that his AirPods Pro may have run out of charge.

First released in 2016, Apple's Airpods skyrocketed as users quickly purchased the wireless earphones making it the company's best product yet.
