According to DigiTimes, Apple is reportedly working with Taiwan-based supply chain partners for several new products, including merchandise called AirPod Pro Lite.
This partnership also involves the next generation of iMac, Apple Watch, and iPad, with the latter two likely be launched after September.
No further information on the production of AirPod Pro Lite is revealed. However, the rest of the report gives us an idea of what Apple is planning to do next. It appears that the iPhone maker is looking to diversify its manufacturing partners as the Coronavirus outbreak has had a negative impact on its production happening in China.
The source also said that Apple has partners in both China and Taiwan, but as the outbreak of Coronavirus showing no sign of being contained, Apple might shift its focus to Taiwan’s for the production of its next-gen AirPod Pro Lite, iPad, and iMac.
DigiTimes does not elaborate on what AirPod Pro Lite is. Apple launched its AirPods Pro in October 2019 and in the same year, it introduced the next generation of regular AirPods. With just an Rs. 3,576 distinction in prices, we have no idea where a Lite version would fit in this whole lineup.
DigiTimes does have some credit when it comes to Apple’s future plans but the accuracy stops there. It is possible that the Lite version is simply the third generation of the AirPods we know.
Take this with a pinch of salt and wait for more rumors to surface to have a better idea of what to expect.
