(Update: Delayed again till July) Powerbeats Pro to be delayed outside of US and Canada

Only the United States and Canada will be getting the Powerbeats Pro in May, while other “launch” countries like Japan and Singapore will have theirs starting from June, due to Beats’ wishes to “make sure that the product quality is up to notch”.

The first units will also only be available in black with other countries following, similar to the initial launch of BeatsX two years ago.

Beats also mentioned that Lightning will slowly replace micro usb as the default charging connector for their products over time.

Update: Apple has announced that the Powerbeats Pro will be available for preorder on the US and Canada sites on May 3rd with release on May 10. As previously reported here other launch countries will follow suit in June.

Update again: Beats just announced the remaining “launch countries” will now get the black model in July.
