- Apple is tipped to launch a new pair of AirPods next month
- The AirPods are expected to be an affordable offering
- They are tipped to be called the AirPod Pro Lite
After launching a new affordable smartphone in the iPhone SE (2020), Cupertino-based tech giant, Apple, could now be looking to launch a new pair of cheaper AirPods as early as next month.
The information comes courtesy of noted tipster, Jon Prosser, who claims that a new generation of AirPods are ready to launch as early as next month. As per the tipster, the AirPods were initially meant to be announced at a March 31 event. However, since the event never really saw the light of the day because of the Coronavirus pandemic, Apple is now looking at debuting the product with the new 13-inch MacBook Pro in May.
Interestingly, the tipster did not offer any source to back up his claims, and also revealed little about the device itself. Yet, it looks likely the claim could indeed end up coming true as the Apple has long been speculated to come with such a device. As such, many analysts are treating the info as the first big leak of what could eventually be AirPods Pro Lite.

Probably alongside the MacBook Pro next month.
Reports in the past have spoken about the AirPods Pro Lite which are tipped to bring features of the second-generation AirPods but at a relatively affordable price. This would also make a lot of sense because wireless Bluetooth AirPods are part of Apple's fastest-growing unit called Wearables, Home and accessories. AirPods line-up is currently one of the most popular from Apple, as such any addition to the product list should serve Apple well.
However, it would be prudent to sound a word of caution here and remind our readers that since there is no real source here, the latest leak should be taken with a pinch of salt.
