Conformable The Verge, the new TVs, which launch on Wednesday, should “soon” receive support for Apple technologies. Both Amazon TV models support 4K HDR, Amazon Alexa voice commands and close integration with the retail giant’s other services.

AirPlay 2 support will allow Amazon TVs to easily play content from an iPhone, iPad and Mac. HomeKit will allow Amazon TV owners to control their devices via Siri voice commands or the Home app on an Apple device.

Amazon has previously introduced support for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit for some of the previous Fire TV devices, including those produced by Toshiba and Insignia. At the time of writing, the company did not support Apple platform on other streaming devices such as the Fire TV Stick.

More and more companies are slowly adding support for AirPlay and HomeKit. In early October, Ecobee launched support for Siri and AirPlay 2 on its SmartThermostat line.
