In Apple's continued tidy-up of Beats following their acquisition of the company last year (having already dropped the name "Beats Music"), they've decided to recall a much hyped, product placement-friendly member of the Beats family, the Beats Pill XL speaker.

Despite being launched in 2013, before the takeover, it remains Apple's responsibility to identify, alter or discontinue faulty goods being sold under their jurisdiction. Like many things Apple, and despite not being an Apple product, it's a battery problem. Ironic, isn't it?

"Apple has determined that, in rare cases, the battery in the Beats Pill XL may overheat and pose a fire safety risk," said the company in a press release.

They're offering a refund to anybody with a potentially defective unit. Usually priced at $300, Apple are putting an extra $25 as a little bonus to make their inherited problem seem less embarrassing for them and more of a boon for customers wishing to make a profit on their overpriced Beats speakers.

Apple's new streaming service launches next week, so this news doesn't exactly arrive coincidentally.
