LG will roll out AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support to its TVs starting ‘mid-year’ 2019

There’s a catch to that, though. LG is limiting the addition of AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support to its 2019 TVs. The functionalities are expected to land “mid-year” this 2019. Owners of these TVs are also expected to get a firmware update that will add Amazon Alexa support on top of the Google Assistant support that these televisions come with. LG hasn’t announced any plans yet of possibly bringing the tech to its slightly older TVs. For now, the LG models that will support AirPlay 2 include LG OLED (2019), LG NanoCell SM9X and SM8X (2019), and LG UHD UM7X series (2019).

Apple's latest iOS ad focuses on Home

Apple's latest advertisement titled Home App- Welcome Home focuses on Apple's HomeKit enabled ecosystem as controlled by iOS on an iPhone using the Siri voice assistant. The Apple Home app was launched around three years ago and since then has been able to control smart lights like Philips Hue, locks, thermostats, smoke detectors, cameras and a variety of other devices.

Unlike competitors like Google Home and Amazon Echo, which both have standalone smart speakers/home automation hubs, Apple relies on iOS devices like the iPhone or the iPad to control these devices. Will Apple soon make the Apple TV a similar HomeKit hub, or will it create a whole new way to free Siri from iOS, so she can operate independently? Only time will tell.

New Philips Ambiance Hue Lighting Set is HomeKit-compatible

Philips has announced a new set of HomeKit-compatible Hue-branded lighting products. What’s different this time around is that these Hue White Ambiance lights are geared towards people who want adjustable white lights and don’t need the varied color options. These Wi-Fi-connected bulbs promises to show “every shade of white light,” ranging from 6500k daylight to 2200k warm light. And like other Hue bulbs, these 800 lumens bulbs rated at 4000k can be adjusted throughout the day with varied light recipes, routines, and HomeKit scenes. And with HomeKit support, it responds to Siri voice commands, too.

The package comes with two Philips Hue white ambiance bulbs, a HomeKit-compatible bridge, and one wireless dimming switch that can be controlled from anywhere in the house even without the iPhone app. The entire kit retails in the US for US$129.95 (around CA$170), while each bulb costs US$29.95. You can check out Philips’s website for more details.
