Name AirPods Pro Lite I have to raise my eyebrows at least one. Aside from that, DigiTimes has returned to responsibility with a report (via 9to5Mac) in which it mentions the fluctuations in sales in Apple's collection. If we go back in time, those AirPods Pro Lite could be Apple's other wireless phones.
In that case, the next question we should ask is, to whom?
Continuation of previous report
If in the last few weeks, DigiTimes has revealed a move in the Apple supply chain for AirPods Pro Lite, the publication has come back offering more details. Instead of talking about the production centers spread between Taiwan and China, and the potential impact of Coronavirus, we now turn to suppliers with names and surnames
According to their sources, Universal Science Science Industrial (USI) will be responsible for making a SiP chip for these types of AirPods. This Taiwanese supplier will join the production of this segment in Amkor, JCET and Murata, from the US, China and Japan respectively. Obviously, the USI will be able to receive a significant portion of the total orders.
It is projected that the introduction of these new heads will be mid-2020. Definitely a production not affected by the impact of Coronavirus. The report goes on to describe the variations of suppliers and the combinations that Apple uses to make different products.
The demand for AirPods Pro took weeks to stabilize, now the rumors put them in production by 40-50% by the end of the year
Finally, explain that AirPods 2 remains the best-selling model. But that the AirPods Pro can achieve between 40-50% of total production by the end of 2020. Most interestingly, given that this model costs over $ 90.
Beats Solo Pro brand Apple, Powerbeats 4 and AirPods Pro Lite
AirPods Pro Lite joins a salad of mixed models from rumors. The arrival of many Apple or wireless Beats, which we remember was supported by an apple. To collect them all, they are as follows:
- Powerbeats 4: may be a form of Powerbeats Pro, but with a cord. It is known for its presence with an image found in iOS 13.3.1.
- Apple headphones: like Beats Solo Pro, Ming-Chi Kuo is the one who put it on the table.
- AirPods Pro Lite: the ones we mentioned earlier and that can just be AirPods Pro without sound cancellation.
All will be proven by having an H1 chip inside. More than that improve independence and communication, this processor will be responsible for allowing Hey Siri on all models. The funny thing is we don't know that they will finally see the light.
It may be the case that all rumors point to the same model (Powerbeats 4). Or two of them (Powerbeats 4 and headphones). Regular provider reports they do not know what they mean by the final product, and what his name will be. Of course, if these predictions are met, many models of headphones can expect to see us in 2020.
