On this week's episode of the AppleInsider podcast, "iPhone 14 Pro" will include 8GB of RAM, M2 MacBook Pro is expected at March event, there are more AirTag anti-stalking features, plus we have a long-term review of the iPad mini.

Leaker "yeux1122" now claims that the "iPhone 14 Pro" will sport 8GB RAM for the first time this Fall. iPhone 13 Pro only features 6GB of RAM, and its upgrade to 8GB would match the latest Samsung Galaxy phones.

In preparation for a possible March even, Apple has registered three new Macs in the Eurasian Economic Commission's regulatory database. These registrations do not provide any details, but with a rumored March 8 keynote, these could be the anticipated 27-inch iMac and updated Mac mini.

An updated "M2" 13-inch MacBook Pro is also expected to arrive in March, but with no design updates. We discuss the possibility of Apple keeping the Touch Bar on the base model MacBook Pro, and whether we expect two high-end iMac models including the rumored iMac Pro.

Next, New York Attorney General Letitia James recently warned New Yorkers of the nefarious use of AirTags. This comes on the heels of Apple announcing changes to Find My, and adding more anti-stalking features to limit misuse of AirTag.

Four months after launch, your hosts provide a long-term review of iPad mini and what we hope to see updated in future models. iPad mini still suffers from display spacing issues, and ProMotion is a noticeable omission with Apple's latest MacBook Pro and iPhone models including that feature.
