Failure to pair the Philips Hue Bridge (or any real bridge) with Homekit

Failure to pair the Philips Hue Bridge (or any real bridge) with Homekit

Hi everyone, this might be a very stupid question, but I have a real problem associating something with Homekit. The Philips Hue deck code is recognized correctly, but the home application continues to show the spinner and never adds anything. Then, when I go back to the Philips hue app, it tells me that Homekit is already paired, yet I don’t see any lights or switches in the Home app. I try to do this only from a btw iPhone, I don’t have an iPad or a Homepod yet, I was wondering if this is the problem and one of these two or an Apple TV is actually needed for this? Or should I only be able to do this with an iPhone? If it matters, all software and firmware are updated for both iOS and Hue Bridge. Thank you in advance
