We have been hearing for a long time that 2024 is going to be a year of new devices, starting with a comprehensive renewal of all iPad models that will arrive in the month of May. Furthermore, everything suggests that The entire range of AirPods will be renewed at the end of 2024 with two new AirPods 4 models as well as new AirPods Max. However, a new rumor suggests that Apple may be working on some AirPods Lite, lower-end headphones than They could cost around $99. and would allow Apple to seduce a large portion of users who do not opt ​​for the most expensive models.

AirPods Lite for $99? Apple could be working on them

A report published by Jeff Pu states that Apple would be thinking about launching AirPods Lite at some point in the second half of 2024. It is likely that this hypothetical launch would go hand in hand with the rest of the launches and updates to the AirPods range.

Production of the two new AirPods 4 models will begin in May

Pu assures that Apple will increase production of all its models thanks to the launch of a low-cost model which they have named AirPods Lite. However, Apple will sell fewer AirPods due to the high demand they have had in recent years. The fact of having headphones that work well and are not old is not an incentive for the user to renew them even if there is a new model.

There is no news about the features of these AirPods Lite. We also do not know if these AirPods have been named that way for a reason, or if it would be the low-cost model integrated into the two new AirPods 4 planned for the end of the year. If so, the two AirPods 4 models would differ in small functions but one model would be higher-end than the other, which would be the Lite model. Thus It would avoid creating a new name to add to Apple's AirPods catalog: Pro, Max, etc.
