Stunning iPhone 14 Pro Leak, Apple’s Missing Mac Pro, Find Your AirPods In GTA Online

Taking a look back at another week of news and headlines from Cupertino, this week’s Apple Loop includes stunning iPhone 14 feature, the cancelled Mac Pro, no more Intel in your MacBook, Apple’s Q3 success, Apple’s lightning port replacement, Steven Spielberg’s one-shot iPhone, and new AirPods in GTA Online.
