The affordable version of the wireless earbuds called AirPods Pro Lite will enter production this month and will be ready for a Summer 2020 launch. Here are more details on Apple AirPods Pro Lite release date, specs, price, features, and rumors.

Apple will most likely remove the advanced features and offer simple earbuds for calling purpose. The materials used in AirPods Pro Lite might be of different quality but it won’t be still cheap. There is no way Apple could market AirPods Lite as the next-gen wireless earbuds, it will mainly cater to the mid-range budget markets.

There are also rumors that Apple has shifted the assembly line factories to Taiwan over the fear of Coronavirus (Covid-19) infection in China. AirPods Pro Lite can release around the second half of the year at price ranging from $149 to $199.
