iOS 15 Philips Hue HomeKit issues

Cupertino, October 5, 2021

Hello everyone! [SOLVED]

Today I upgraded to iOS 15 and immediately when I got home my Phillips Hue lights were not responsive in the Home app and control center. And I can't seem to connect them to HomeKit…

The weird thing is, they still work **fine** when I control them via the **Philips Hue app** itself. Also, my Nanoleaf lights still work fine with iOS 15.


I really don't understand what going on, is this a bug or am I missing something?


What I already tried:

- resetting my bridge and Wi-Fi and reconnecting my iPhone to the Hue app and bridge. It resulted in the same behavior as before (works fine via the Hue App, but can't connect it to HomeKit).

- Private relay is turned off.

- My Wi-Fi supports both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz and the 2.4Ghz still works fine because I can control my HomePod (requires 2.4Ghz) without any problems.


Thanks a lot!

I completely resetted HomeKit via the Philips Hue app and suddenly it all worked again. You can reset it by going to voice assistants > Siri & HomeKit and try to connect it. If it doesn’t work it’ll give you an option to get help and then you can press reset HomeKit.
