New IQOS ILUMA
Philip Morris International Launches New IQOS ILUMA to Accelerate the Achievement of a Smoke-Free Future.
Pioneering SMARTCORE INDUCTION SYSTEMTM that Introduces Bladeless Heating Technology to the World’s No. 1 Heated Tobacco System
Philip Morris International Inc announced the launch of IQOS ILUMA, the latest and most innovative addition to their growing portfolio of smoke-free products for adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use nicotine products. This range of better and satisfying alternatives to cigarettes includes multiple generations of the IQOS tobacco-heating system, the No. 1 heated tobacco product in the world. Uniquely, the new IQOS ILUMA becomes the brand’s first tobacco-heating system to introduce induction-heating technology, which utilizes no blade and requires no cleaning.
“Our objective is a world without cigarettes; a world where cigarettes are replaced by smoke-free alternatives that are a better choice than continued smoking,” said PMI CEO Jacek Olczak. “We have launched several generations of our IQOS heated tobacco system; expanding our portfolio to offer constantly improved, science-backed solutions that take advantage of advancements in technology and address pain points heard from consumers. This commitment to continuous innovation plays a significant role in our ambition to deliver a smoke-free future. The launch of IQOS ILUMA, our most innovative device yet, gives adult smokers another better choice and represents an important leap forward in our efforts to accelerate the end of smoking.”
The IQOS ILUMA series offers two devices: IQOS ILUMA PRIME and IQOS ILUMA. Both devices use new induction-heating technology but offer different designs to allow adult users to select the device that best suits their needs and preferences.
The innovative heating technology in these devices is the SMARTCORE INDUCTION SYSTEM that heats the tobacco from within the new TEREA SMARTCORE STICK. These newly designed sticks are to be used only with IQOS ILUMA, which features an auto-start function that detects when the TEREATM stick is inserted and automatically turns on the device. These bladeless devices offer a cleaner way to heat tobacco from the core, without burning it, to provide a more consistent experience, no tobacco residue, and no need to clean the device. Additionally, they generate no combustion and no smoke, and PMI’s market research indicates that IQOS ILUMA provides a more pleasurable experience compared to previous IQOS generations.
“IQOS ILUMA is our most innovative offering to-date and the new flagship in our portfolio of science-backed, smoke-free products. Its breakthrough induction-heating technology heats tobacco from within, without burning, so there’s no smoke, no ash and, like previous IQOS devices, it emits, on average, 95% lower levels of harmful chemicals compared with cigarettes,” said Michele Cattoni, Vice President Heated Tobacco Platforms at PMI. “However, unlike our previous tobacco-heating systems, IQOS ILUMA has no blade. That means no tobacco residue or cleaning—ever. With this, and other product features, we aim to address consumer pain points that may have hindered some adult smokers from beginning or maintaining their journey away from cigarettes in the past.”
IQOS ILUMA AND IQOS ILUMA PRIME
IQOS ILUMA PRIME is available in a new design that uses elegant, anodized aluminum combined with a texture wrap. The device is available in four colors and is customizable both in terms of connected features via the user’s smartphone and offline with a wide range of accessories, including charger wraps and holder rings. The design of IQOS ILUMA is similar to that of previous IQOS generations but provides an enhanced tobacco experience with improved draw and stick-by-stick taste consistency—available in five colors with further accessory options, such as holder rings and interchangeable doors. Both devices offer adult users the ability to have two consecutive uses without recharging the holder and include advanced features that can be enabled or disabled—by the IQOS app—such as smart gestures, auto-start, various illumination modes, alerts, and the ability for the user to lock and unlock their device when needed. IQOS ILUMA is our most robust device to date, and, as it has no blade, there’s no need to clean the device.
IQOS ILUMA is designed to be used only with TEREA SMARTCORE STICKS. IQOS ILUMA and TEREA SMARTCORE STICKSTM must not be used with previous IQOS generations, as this may cause damage to the device. As TEREA SMARTCORE STICKS contain a sharp metal part that can cause serious injury if swallowed, they must be kept out of reach of children and pets, and must not be ingested or disassembled.
