4 surprises that Apple will launch this 2018

Over the past few months we have spoken on several occasions about Apple's future releases . The products that the company of the bitten apple plans to present this year are very varied.

From an iPhone X Plus to a second generation iPhone SE through other devices and accessories such as the AirPods 2 or the HomePod speaker. But if you think that the thing ends here you are very wrong, because Apple has prepared many more surprises for its consumers ...

But the best of all is that these surprises will come at a cheaper price. That's right, rumors suggest that Apple will launch up to four devices "low-cost" during this year 2018. Do you want to discover what they are?

HomePod low-cost

Apple plans to market a new, more affordable HomePod in the second half of 2018. It will be a smaller version of the original smart speaker, and its price will range between 150 - 200 dollars. It's a somewhat risky move, since HomePod's competitors have been on the market much longer.

MacBook Air cheaper

Ming-Chi Kuo, of KGI Securities, revealed that Apple could present a much cheaper MacBook Air with a 13-inch screen for its line of laptops . Its estimated price would be less than 1,000 dollars. Specifically we would talk about a cost between 799 - 899 dollars.

9.7 inch iPad

Another leak indicates that Apple will sell a low-cost iPad with a 9.7-inch screen . Last year already presented a low-cost iPad with an A9 processor, a rear camera of 8 MP and a price of 399 euros. On this occasion, the low-cost iPad of 2018 could cost about $ 259.
6.1-inch iPhone

From the supply chain of Apple there are also rumors about the possible launch of an iPhone with a 6.1-inch LCD screen in 2018 . It is expected that this iPhone incorporates Face ID technology and has a price between 649 - 749 dollars . Probably its cost is higher outside the United States.

It is also interesting to add that the company could also present an even cheaper iPhone. Specifically we speak of the successor of the iPhone SE.
In summary…

These are the low-cost products that Apple could present in 2018:

    HomePod (reduced version)
    MacBook Air (13 inches)
    iPhone (6.1 inches)
    iPad (9.7 inches)

Release dates

The low-cost iPad of 2018 could be presented first, sooner than we think. Recall that the iPad (2017) was presented in March.

As for the MacBook Air, it is possible that the company of the bitten apple will be present during the WWDC developer conference to be held in the first week of June at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

In relation to the 6.1-inch iPhone and the HomePod in a reduced version, both products could be released at the end of 2018 . It is possible that the two devices arrive after the expected Apple keynote of the month of September.
