New Beats Pill iOS 17
We don't know much about the new speaker, but it has the same pill-shaped design as other Pill speakers, and it has a lanyard that we have not seen on prior models.


Beats has not yet announced the Beats Pill, and a release date remains unknown. NBA superstar LeBron James and F1 Driver Daniel Ricciardo have both been seen carrying the speaker.

Not sure why any hate on these. I have one of the originals, still going strong and sounding great as my garage speaker. Use it all the time when working on the cars, or sitting out on the patio.

These mini speakers are becoming obsolete with how good phone speakers have become.
I think there is still a market for these..

Although phone speakers can get very loud indeed… it has to be said a physically larger driver and all the rest truly does make a difference to sound quality.

Lets see what the reviews of this one are like… but there are some very high end portable speakers about.

Agree with the above. I love the pill+ esp at the prices I got them. $79.99 at Costco! I did want more air in the highs, but hopefully Apple fixes this problem on these. If they can price them at $149.99 they will sell.
