In the new episode of HomeKit Insider, Andrew's Mac Pro refuses to start, iPhone 13 setup bugs, IKEA launches the Symfonisk combo and speakers, Home + 5.2 update and we share our favorite sleep tracking apps.

Last week, Aqara announced the availability of its HomeKit-compatible smart roller adapter, which allows users to control shades of beads or chains on Apple's smart platform.

The biggest HomeKit news this week was the launch of the long-awaited second-generation Symfonisk lamp speaker, which includes support for AirPlay 2. It has finally arrived with changeable shades to make it more customizable for your home and can work with Apple's smart platform.

In addition to the new Symfonisk speaker, we also received a nice update of the Home + 5 application, which brought new icons and other changes.

Then we spent a good chunk of the show talking about our setup issues with the new iPhone 13, including issues with the correct pairing of our watches.

Finally, we talked about sleep tracking in your smart home and recommended several different applications that can help you rest.
