Apple’s new Beats Pill+ is its first Lightning-equiped Bluetooth speaker
If you thought that Apple spent so many billions of dollars on Beats by Dre just for Apple Music, you’re mistaken. The company has made a few updates to some of the Beats headphones in the market as well. After the recent recall of the Beats Pill XL, Cupertino now responds with a new product.
Apple has just announced the Beats Pill+, which stands in-between the Beats Pill, and the defunct Beats Pill XL. It offers a whole new design, up to 12 hours of battery life, and this would be the first Beats product with some Apple footprint in its labels, and even the fact that it includes Lightning connectivity for charging, or even using this port to charge your iPhone while it plays music. The weird part is to notice that this product only supports Bluetooth connectivity, and doesn’t provide support for Apple’s AirPlay. Still it is a nifty new product that even includes an iPhone app to control the speaker, and even connect multiple devices to play the same music.
It should be available soon for a price tag of $229 in white and black color options.
