Well it is very clear now Apple wants the Air brand name to be Mid Range. So Pro > Air > Original ( MacBook / iPad ).

MacBook Pro > MacBook Air > Macbook

iPad Pro > iPad Air > iPad ( The Mini actually fits into the Mid Range )

It is similar on iPhone, where I expect Apple to drop the number from naming scheme and just go with

iPhone S > iPhone R > iPhone

Basically Apple is transition all of their product line into three different segment, each with different display size and prices. And I guess these transition will make a lot more sense once the 2019 and 2020 product are out.
