The analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo says the company will launch the 13 Inch MacBook Air with more cheaper price tag compare to what it is now costing.

Kuo expects that the introduction of a sub $1000 (RM3900) MacBook Air could help boost sales by between 10 and 15 percent. The same rise was observed when Apple released the affordable 9.7-inch iPad past year, boosting iPad sales overall.

If you've ever wanted to own a MacBook but just couldn't stretch the budget, you may be in luck as Apple looks set to release its first properly affordable MacBook Air, soon.

This would suggest that the crew at Cupertino will not be looking at drastically redesigning the now venerable MacBook Air, but instead will give it a few tweaks, such as new Intel Core i chips, keeping costs low and thereby allowing the price to be decreased. According to reports, the Cupertino major is gearing up to announce a huge 6.5-inch OLED iPhone with dual-SIM support, while the other two iPhones will be slightly cheaper and are tipped to come with LCD displays. If the information is accurate then we may not have to wait for long before the company's cheaper MacBook Air hits the market.

To recall, in 2016, the company made a decision to officially discontinue the 11-inch MacBook Air. In the third quarter of 2017, the company shipped 4.43 million MacBooks.

Kuo says that KGI is "positive" on shipments of AirPods and predicts the refreshed model will come in the second half of the year, driving strong year over year growth.

Kuo also notes that demand for HomePod has been "mediocre" thus far. The analyst hopes that the company will release the smart speaker based on "shipping time".
