Apart from these, prices of other Apple products have not been hiked. The hike in price could be due to supply chain issues being faced by the company due to Covid-19 lockdowns in China.
Apple is reportedly working on AirPods Pro 2 and they are expected to launch in the second half of the year. They will likely be priced above the existing AirPods Pro when they are launched.
