iOS 13 HomeKit doesn't allow (very) hot color temperatures anymore?

Cupertino, October 16, 2019

So with my Hue Ambience lights during iOS 12, I was able to set the color temperature very warm, exactly the same as the hue app.

But now in iOS13, when I use the Home app, the color temperature may not go so hot. Even when manually changing color using the color wheel, the hottest option is noticeably cooler than what's possible in the Hue app.

This basically broke the opportunity to make scenes with mood lighting.

Does anyone experience this and is there a solution? (Besides not using HomeKit and using the Hue app directly)
