Beats unveils its first Lightning-equipped speaker

We havent really seen much in terms of new hardware from Beats, the speaker company after Apple’s $3 billion aquisition over a year ago. As the holiday season is approaching the company is ready to show off some new hardware, the Beats Pill+.

The new Beats Pill+ will cost $230 and will start shipping in November to Apple Stores and other retailers that sell Beats products. We’ll also see a new Beats iOS (and Android) app alongside the device’s release. The app will allow users to connect to another Pill+ to amplify the sound, set up dedicated stereo channels and allow friends to sync their device to the speaker.

The Pill+ is bigger than the Pill before it but is smaller than the Pill XL that was later recalled after a fire risk when charging. The new Pill+ has a 12 hour battery life and can even charge your devices via USB or its Lightning port.

Tech news site The Verge was able to get some hands-on time with the new speaker. “Everything comes through full and clear, and all the music sounded much better than [I] expected from yet another portable Bluetooth speaker.”
