On this week's episode of the HomeKit Insider podcast, your hosts discuss new product releases from the past week, discuss Sonos headphone rumors, and review a few products. Last week we saw that the Briiv Pro indoor air purifier hit Kickstarter. We reviewed the original model and it uses more environmentally friendly materials for the filter, such as coconut husks and moss. Signify has updated the Philips Hue contact sensor and now adds support for Apple Home and Matt. That way you can use it for your other automations, and not just for Hue lights. Sonos has been in the rumor cycle for a while now, and a new leak says that Sonos will launch its long-awaited headphones, a new premium soundbar, and more in 2024. Finally in the news, we discuss some smart home deals for Cyber Monday. We've rounded up lots of great deals on HomeKit devices and even apps through the Indie App Sale. After the news, we go hands-on with some new products. We're kicking off the reviews with our favorite portable battery packs, including those from Hyper and Anker. Then we look at two new products from Journey. There's a desk mat with an integrated MagSafe puck and a laptop sleeve that also integrates a magnetic charging pad for on-the-go use.
