Of course! But these rumors are from the most reliable leakers that called the last few iterations, including how the 14 was supposed to have new features and a more significant processor speed increase, then the same leaker(s) announced they were going to be delayed until the next year, and they were right again.

Right, but the 14 Pro wound up being an iteration. It was supposed to have ray tracing and a completely rethought camera system. But it didn’t. The 15 is going to be the one to get. So unless your current phone is unusable I would hold out because the 14 Pro is not worth the upgrade from my 13 Pro.

The 70s were weird. I was only a kid but it seemed like the entire world in the 70s was a bell-bottomed was a filthy, rapey, child-abducting, cigarette-smoking, Quaalude-popping, bell-bottom-wearing, airline hijacking, am-radio-listening fever dream has crisis with big dumb collars. I mean, the decade started with The Beatles breaking up. Talk about a harbinger.

When I was relatively young and dumb, I saw this with a group of friends in a theater in Schaumburg, IL, with plans of grabbing dinner then hitting Shelter in Chicago afterwards. Turned out the theater was filled with camp survivors and their families. It is already a powerful film, but the reverent, pin-drop silence of the audience punctuated only by muted gasps and sobs was extra devastating. Needless to say there was no dinner or clubbing afterwards; we decided to just go straight home and hug our parents.
