Apple HomeKit Accessories Set to Hit Stores Next Month

Cupertino, July 8, 2024

By Julia Love (Reuters) - The first wave of home automation accessories, including thermostats and garage door openers, that are compatible with Apple Inc.'s software platform will be available for purchase starting in June, the technology company announced on Thursday.

HomeKit, a set of tools integrated into Apple's iOS 8 software, is specifically designed to operate with smart home devices. The company introduced this home automation platform during its developer conference last year, but until now, there have been no devices on the market compatible with the software.

"HomeKit has only been available for a few months and we already have dozens of partners committed to bringing HomeKit accessories to market, and we look forward to the first ones shipping next month," Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller said in a statement. Apple has not disclosed the locations where these accessories will be sold.

Apple's announcement came after a report from Fortune suggested that the first HomeKit devices would not be available until August or September.
