Apple AirPods are some of the most popular headsets on the market. They’re about to get even better if rumors are to be believed. Reports suggest that Apple is working on new AirPods Max and a more affordable option for 2024. Read on to find out all the details!
There will be new Apple AirPods models soon.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is expected to launch its next-generation AirPods Max and the more affordable AirPods TWS by next year. Luxshare ICT and Hon Teng are expected to assemble the new AirPods models in the second half of 2024, although this may also move to the first half of 2025. The mass shipment is expected to begin in the second half of 2024.
AirPods Lite is expected to compete with other affordable TWS options currently available in the market and will be referred to as AirPods Lite by another analyst Jeff Pu (via 9To5Mac).
This price tag seems much lower than those of the AirPod 2 or AirPod 3, which retail for $129 or ₹14,900, and the AirPod 3 at $169 or ₹20,900.
While we don’t know what the AirPods Lite will bring, we can expect details similar to the existing AirPods 2 with some modifications.
AirPods Max will replace the existing AirPods launched back in 2020. No significant changes are planned, but there may be some sound quality improvements, a longer battery life, and new features.
These details should be taken with a grain of salt since we are over a year away from a launch. We will keep you posted as soon as something concrete comes out. So stay tuned, and let us know what you think about inexpensive AirPods in the comments.
