To recall, Apple launched Beats Pill + in 2015. It was the first product the company launched following Apple’s acquisition of Beats in 2014 for $ 3 billion from Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine. The Pill + was similar to the original Pill, only with the addition of a Lightning port, with a much cleaner design. Also Read: Foxconn India To Reopen Its iPhone Manufacturing Facility On Jan 12

After launch, Apple did not update the Beats Pill +, however it kept updating it with new color options over the years.

To recall, Apple discontinued its original HomePod last year, and now that the Beats Pill + also receives the same treatment, the HomePod Mini is the only proprietary speaker the company sells.

With this, Beats will now focus solely on headphones and over-the-ear headphones. The Apple subsidiary recently refined its line by discontinuing its Powerbeats, Solo Pro and EP headphones and earphones. After which he released Beats Fit Pro and Beats Studio Buds.

The Beats Studio Buds have a truly wireless design similar to Apple’s AirPods Pro. They come with active noise cancellation, up to 8 hours of battery life, replaceable tips, and Class 1 Bluetooth for quick pairing.

While the Beats Pill + is currently not available through Apple’s official retail lines, the company has not officially discontinued the product, so we could see it return or see the launch of a new portable Bluetooth speaker under the Beats brand soon.
