The Beats Pill+ Bluetooth speaker has been around for quite some time. It was a pretty popular product for the Apple-owned company. However, despite that, the speaker has not received a replacement model. And now apparently it has been discontinued.
That’s according to a report today from 9to5Mac, which has noted that the Bluetooth-enabled speaker, which is small enough to move around with you, is no longer listed on the Beats website. It is also not available on Apple’s Online Store, either. And even searching for the product on Apple’s site doesn’t bring anything up anymore.
Apple and Beats launched the Pill+ in 2015. At the time, it was priced at $230. That price point fluctuated quite a bit over the years, and it’s mostly been made available for around $180 or so. One of the more interesting elements of the Pill+ is the fact that while the speaker has not been updated in any meaningful reason since its release, it has been offered up in new colors.
The Pill+ was equipped with a battery that could last around 12 hours on a single charge. As mentioned above, it has a small form factor that makes it ideal for moving around, either while in a house or out and about. It connects easily enough to an iPhone (or other device, like an iPad), and even offered a companion app.
Now that the Pill+ Bluetooth speaker is discontinued, the Beats brand is essentially focused on headphones.
