Apple Service Providers are preparing to offer after-sales service for Beats headphones and speakers, reports the Greek site Techingreek (via 9to5Mac). Since Apple has acquired Beats, this would be a logical step to take.
The Greek site posted the above image showing a message sent to an Apple Service Provider in Greece, which reads (in part) “. . . in the near future Apple will be responsible for providing service to customers with Beats Electronics [products] and accessories”.
Considering that Apple acquired Beats for $3 billion back in May, this move is a logical step toward fully incorporating their acquisition. We could see after-sales Beats service in every country with Apple retail stores “in the near future”, as the letter suggests.
Since Apple announced the Beats deal, no major headphone-related announcement has been forthcoming: we’ve seen the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and now the company is preparing to announce the next-generation iPads and Macs.
