Apple hasn\u2019t done much with its ultra-thin MacBook Air in recent years, opting to\u00a0slim down some of its other offerings\u00a0instead. But the computer is reasonably popular, and according to Apple analyst KGI Securities (via\u00a09to5Mac), the company is reportedly planning to release a cheaper model at some point in the second quarter of 2018. According to\u00a09to5Mac, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects that Apple will release a 13-inch MacBook Air \u201cwith a lower price tag,\u201d later this year, and that the lower price could help boost Apple\u2019s laptop sales. While the line\u00a0celebrates its tenth year in 2018, the line has largely only received incremental updates, the last of which came last summer, when\u00a0Apple updated it with a\u00a0faster 1.8GHz Intel processor. Apple currently sells the MacBook Air for $999. The report also says that Apple will likely refresh its AirPods, and that the HomePod has been met with \u201cmediocre\u201d demand.
