When one thinks about Apple, one of the first things that come to mind is often the price, given that their devices are not inexpensive. The firm has done a good job throughout the years of broadening its iPhone portfolio, providing an alternative at practically every price point. However, some of Apple’s product lines are not accessible, and the prices for those products continue to be exorbitant.

Regrettably, one such example is the AirPods 2, which were first introduced in 2019 with a price tag of $129 but do not actually provide that much when compared to the products offered by its rivals. Furthermore, you have wonderful higher-tier alternatives, such as AirPods Pro 2 and AirPods 3 that give amazing sound quality and functionality, which helps make the purchase of these devices seem a little more acceptable.

As per 9to5Mac, which cites an analyst named Jeff Pu of Haitong International Research Ltd as a source, Apple may be in the process of developing a more affordable version of the AirPods right now. To our regret, there does not appear to be any data on the product at this time; the analyst Pu has just said that it would be a lower cost product. There are now four distinct versions of Apple’s AirPods available on the market, with the AirPods 2 being the most affordable option.

As per Nikkei Asia, the demand for Apple goods seems to be decreasing. This comes on the heels of news that the firm has told its suppliers to create less components for several of its most popular items, such as the MacBook, Apple Watch, and AirPods. In the present market, there is undoubtedly a great deal of rivalry for earbuds that fall into the category of costing less than one hundred dollars.

We will simply have to be patient for the time being since 2023 has the potential to be a banner year for Apple in spite of the company’s production reductions. It is anticipated that the firm will reveal new iPhones equipped with USB-C, updated versions of the MacBook Pro 14 and 16, and other exciting products.
