New Beats Pill Appears in FCC Database Ahead of Launch

Multiple celebrities have been spotted with a new version of the Beats Pill speaker, and today the device showed up in an FCC database, suggesting that we're getting closer to a potential launch.

FCC filings typically happen just weeks ahead of when a product launches, so we could see this new Beats Pill speaker sometime in June. Apple plans to launch Solo Buds earphones in June, so the Pill could launch around the same timeframe.

Apple has clearly provided these Beats Pill speakers to a number of sports stars and celebrities to create hype for it, and the speaker has been seen with basketball star LeBron James, F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo, soccer star Lionel Messi, and Kim Kardashian.

New Beats Pill iOS 17
Apple has shared no details on the speaker, but it has a pill-shaped design that's similar to the Beats Pill that was discontinued in 2022. It also includes a lanyard that was not available on prior models, and that's been heavily promoted in the celebrity leaks. Colors will include gold, red, and black, according to leaked images found when iOS 17.5 was being beta tested.

The new Beats Pill speaker will likely feature USB-C charging, improved Bluetooth, and other similar improvements.

Ug, the tampon again?

And failed as far as I am concerned. I would love to know what they paid for these product placement pics, "celebs" don't do stuff like this for free. I would think Apple could do way better for their advertising dollars. I cannot think of anything that turns me off to a product more than blatant photo ops with questionable "celebs".

‘Beats’ logo = number 6 set slightly counter-clockwise; brand name itself also remarkably close to ‘beast’
Three colorways/three logos = 666
First Apple computer = priced at $666.66
Apple logo/branding = bitten apple/fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil in Garden of Eden (Book of Genesis)
Pill = φαρμακεία/pharmakeia in Greek New Testament (translated to sorceries/witchcraft in the King James Version Bible: “…For thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries [pharmakeia] were all nations deceived.” [Revelation 18:23 KJV])

If you want to listen to music on the move wouldn’t AirPods be a better bet?
This isn't the only use case for this. They're great to carry around the house, outside, pool side, gatherings, all kinds of stuff. Travel, hotel rooms, white noise at night, tons of use.

I bought 2 White Beats Pill+ speakers in 2016ish and used the heck out of them. Ran them in the ground. The batteries are so destroyed that the speakers can't even be on for more than a few seconds. I am sooooo excited about this. Love my HomePod and minis at home, but this is so great to take with you. Very excited.

Side Note: PLEASE HELP!!! Does ANYBODY know if you can replace the battery in the Beats Pill+? I can't find anything about it anywhere and if you have, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!

Thank you ?
