iOS Friendly BEROs have now shipped

Dear BERO Backers:

It has been quite the journey in designing, engineering and developing BERO.

After many hurdles, including the long time waiting time for approval for the MFI, we finally were able to get the required components and to produce the remaining BERO units (and a few extra).

Remaining iOS friendly units have been dispatched from Hong Kong today and are expected to arrive to their destinations in the next few weeks.

The BERO App is now on the APP Store:

The version on the Android market is here:

We will be updating you a bit later as to how we can say “Thanks” for your patience.

Hope you enjoy your BERO!

Regards,

Team BERO

Next batch of BEROs expected to ship mid July....

Dear BERO Backers:

Thanks for your patient wait for getting the second round of BEROs out to you. We never anticipated the MFI approval process would be a 6 month endeavor. Now all that remains is to get the APP approved and uploaded to the Apple APP store.

From a manufacturing perspective, all the MFI specific components are now in house and we have started to manufacture the second batch of PCBs and will be populating them with components next week. Injection molding has started and we anticipate to start shipping these BERO units in mid July.

For those that have asked about a perk for waiting so long…we are working on something here as a way of saying “Thanks!”

Great News – BERO is MFI Approved!

Dear BERO Backers:

Great News – BERO is MFI Approved!

We will now start the process of ordering the CP chips to enable BERO to work with iOS. Other materials are already in house from beforehand and we will be running the production in the next few weeks.

We hope to have the remaining BERO units shipping in early July. Thanks for your patience with this one. We had no idea that this process would be so lengthy and require so much back and forth.

Regards
