Apple update fixes Music bug affecting the iPhone 13 and new iPads
You may have to update your brand new Apple device before you can use it to play music. As spotted by MacRumors, the tech giant has issued an advisory warning users about an Apple Music bug and advising them to update their devices. Apparently, people may not be able to access their Apple Music catalog and settings or use Sync Library if they restore their new phone or tablet from a backup. The bug affects the company's latest mobile devices, namely the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, 6th-generation iPad mini and 9th-generation iPad.
Apple unveiled its new smartphones and tablets at an event in mid-September. The largest and most expensive phone in the bunch is the iPhone Pro Max, with its 6.33-inch screen and prices that reach $1,599. Compared to their predecessors, the standard iPhone 13 and iPhone mini models have smaller notches, batteries that last up to 2.5 hours longer and brighter displays. Meanwhile, the new entry-level iPad now ships with an A13 Bionic chip, promising faster performance than the previous generation. As for the new iPad mini, it now comes with a USB-C port instead of Apple's proprietary Lightning port.
The new devices started shipping on September 24th, and MacRumors says users have already started getting notifications for a software update. To install it, you simply have to go to Software Update under General in Settings.
Google adds one-button group chats for Calendar meetings
Ever wish you could quickly share notes before a Google Calendar meeting, or follow up afterward? You can now. Google is trotting out updates to Workspace and G Suite users that let you easily create a group chat with everyone from your organization attending a given meeting. You just have to tap a button near the guest list to start the conversation directly from the event, whether you're on the web or your phone.
This won't work with people outside your organization. You may also have to be patient. Web users on a rapid release track are in the midst of a 15-day rollout that quietly began on September 20th, while mobile users and more cautious companies will have to wait until October 4th.
It's a welcome move, if also an expected one. Google is increasingly unifying its Workspace web apps, including Gmail's growing role as a hub for office conversation. The Calendar expansion is a logical extension -- it could make Google's chat service an easy choice for meeting organizers who want to message colleagues.

Ducati India had two big announcements today. The first one was that the company started taking bookings for the new Monster in India. And the second announcement is that Ducati will announce the prices of the new Monster on September 23, 2021. The new Monster is going to be Ducati's flagship middleweight naked sportbike and it will go up against the Triumph Street Triple R and the Kawasaki Z900 in India. The new Ducati Monster was unveiled globally late last year and comes to India nearly 9 months after its global debut, delayed because of the second wave of the pandemic.
The motorcycle gets a full revamp, top-to-bottom, for 2021. There's a new Aluminium swingarm in play and the Monster now loses its curves and becomes edgier, leaner and meaner. The LED headlight, chiselled fuel tank along with the new frame means that the motorcycle loses up to 18 kg of weight over the old model, having a dry kerb weight of 166 kg. The 2021 Ducati Monster gets a 937 cc L-Twin Testastretta engine which is liquid-cooled. The engine is seen on other Ducati models too such as the Hypermotard and 2021 SuperSport. On the Monster, it is tuned to make 110 bhp at 9,250 rpm along with peak torque output of 93 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox and Ducati offers a bi-directional quick-shifter as standard.
The Monster gets an all-new Aluminium frame inspired by the Panigale V4. The sub-frame at the rear is made of glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP), making it lighter and stronger than before. The motorcycle gets 43 mm upside down forks with 130 mm travel and an adjustable monoshock at the rear with 140 mm travel. The bike also gets new 17-inch alloys which are lighter than before. They are shod with Pirelli Diablo Rosso III rubber, 120/70 up front and 180/55 at the rear. Up front it gets twin Brembo M4.32 4-piston monobloc callipers that grip two 320 mm discs. At the rear the bike gets a single 245 mm disc gripped by a Brembo calliper. Like the front brake, it features sintered brake pads.
