According to a well-known Apple analyst, the new AirPods Max and AirPods “lite” are coming as early as next year. The analyst in question, of course, Ming-Chi Kuo.
Next-Gen AirPods Max and AirPods ‘lite’ Coming Later Next Year
He said the next-generation AirPods will go into mass production in the second half of 2024 or the first half of 2025. In addition to his regular AirPods and AirPods Pro models, Apple is also working on his AirPods “lights.”
Currently, the name “Lite” is neither official nor suggested by analysts. However, these AirPods of his will be more affordable. Analysts say Apple is targeting his $99 price.
Along with these cheaper AirPods, you’ll also get the successor to Apple’s most expensive pair of headphones, the AirPods Max. Nothing is known at this time other than being assembled by Luxshare ICT and Hon Teng.
Ming-Chi Kuo is well known in the tech world. He often shares his Apple-related news and is usually to the point. So there is no reason not to believe what he said here.
Recently, a lot of iPhone-related information has come out.
In fact, a ton of Apple news has surfaced recently. In addition to these AirPods news, some iPhone information has also surfaced. It looks like the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will join the ranks of Dynamic Island. That’s why all iPhone 15 smartphones will have dynamic islands.
However, iPhone 15 Pro models may also include solid-state buttons. Apple is said to be considering replacing regular physical buttons with solid-state ones.
On top of that, another rumor suggested that the iPhone 16 Pro series may drop Dynamic Island altogether. The iPhone 16 Pro series is said to include an under-display selfie camera and Face ID hardware.
We don’t yet know how many of these rumors are accurate, but they’re probably all. I don’t know if it’s realistic.
