Apple Recalls Beats Pill XL Speakers

Apple announced the recall of one of its products, due to some overheating concerns. The famous company stated that it is recalling Beats Pill XL portable wireless speakers, due to a fire hazard, which may be caused by overheating batteries.

Apple announced that a number of no less than 220,000 speakers will be recalled in the United States, while about 11,000 will be recalled in Canada. The recall was also confirmed by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), which also claimed that the company received no less than eight reports of overheating speakers.

In some cases, these overheating speakers have turned out being quite dangerous for customers, as reports indicated that they burnt one customer's finger, while damaging another customer's table.

Also, it seems that the recall was limited only to this product, Apple stating that the recall did not affect any other Beats or Apple products. The famous company also claimed that it will issue store credit or a full refund, worth no less than $325, in about three weeks after receiving the faulty speakers back. So, this means that customers will be able to get a full refund, in case they possess one of the products that was recalled at this point.

As imagined, this is not the first time when a tech company finds itself in the situation of having to issue a recall. And it definitely is not the first time when Apple finds itself in such a situation. The popular company also announced an iPhone replacement program, back in August, 2014.

Then, Apple recalled some of the smartphones it sold between September 2012 and January 2013. The cause of the recall actually was quite similar to the reason why Apple announced the recall it issued at this point: faulty batteries.
However, recalls are not very common for Apple, after all. In fact, the famous company has rarely made such announcements. Apple purchased Beats for no less than $3 billion last year. The Beats Pill XL were introduced in November 2013, about half a year before Apple singed the deal with Beats.
