Looks like Apple will be bringing back one of its more popular laptops, the MacBook Air, in a more attractive price package.
If Apple does launch it in Q2 of 2018, that would mean we'll see it on shelves sometime between April and June, which infers it could be announced at WWDC, which is believed to be taking place at the very beginning of June.
This news comes from none other than Ming-Chi Kuo, the KGI analyst with a solid track record when it comes to Apple's upcoming releases.
The assumption is that a cheaper 13-inch MacBook Air could refresh the brand; which has been almost forgotten as Apple focuses on smaller a smaller MacBook and MacBook Pro. If Apple is working on new MacBook Air, we can except details at the event. Kuo said that he expects the new version will lead to higher MacBook shipments this year by 10-15 percent this year. The laptop was given a slightly faster processor, with a default RAM of 8GB.
Another big reason for the demise could be its 1.35kg weight, as the name speaks "Air", it can drop MacBook air from the lineup.
When Apple released the new MacBook Pro models in 2016, enthusiasts thought that it would have been better if the laptops were instead given the MacBook Air name. The analyst offers new supply chain details on the new iPhones coming this year, AirPods demand, and more. Described as a "13-inch entry-level MacBook", it sounded like a successor to the MacBook Air, however cheaper.
Will Apple finally give the MacBook Air its due attention?
