Apple launches rebranded mobile app for select Beats headphones
Apple has quietly updated the Beats app with new important features and a name change. The app that was previously known as Beats Pill is now known as Beats and addresses to a larger pool of Beats fans. Up until now, the app was meant for those who own the Beats Pill+ speaker, allowing them to control various aspects.

The new Beats app does a lot more and caters to a much larger audience – audiophiles. Spotted by AndroidPolice, the rebranded Beats app is now compatible with five of Beats' more popular Bluetooth-enabled headphones, such as Studio3, Solo3, Powerbeats3, BeatsX, and Powerbeats Pro.

The Beats app unlocks a number of interesting features for Beats headphones users, such as the ability to see the battery status and access to key functions when you turn on the headphones. Those who own the Beats Studio3 wireless headphones will be able to control the Pure Adaptive Noise Canceling (ANC) feature directly from the Product Card of the Beats App.

If you're using an Android smartphone with your Beats headphones, you can now download the new Beats app for free via Google Play Store. The iOS Beats app remains unchanged though, at least for the time being.
