AWT News Update: October 24, 2016

Today was a “kinda slow” news day to start off what should be a rather exciting week of Apple news. Tomorrow’s the Q4 2016 Earnings Call, while Thursday Apple is holding its “hello again” Mac event. So what happened on this slow Monday?

  • Some readers reported having issues connecting to Apple’s iCloud Music Library today
  • The Apple Watch Nike+ will be available on Friday, October 28
  • T-Mobile says the iPhone 7 was partially responsible for better-than-expected quarterly earnings
  • Mac sales are expected to be down yet again for the quarter that ended on September 30, but Thursday’s event will hopefully provide a much needed boost to the Mac line’s bottom line.

It’s obviously designed to fill the void left by Samsung’s discontinued Galaxy Note 7. The Mi Note 2 sports a 22.56-megapixel camera on the back, an 8-megapixel camera on the front, and up to 6GB of RAM.

The phone starts at 2799 yuan (approximately $413) for a 4GB model with 64 GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. A 3499 yuan ($516) model sports 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM.
