Introducing the Sonos Move 2 and Matter 1.2, Alongside an Array of Qi2 Devices

Cupertino, September 11, 2023

On this week's episode of the HomeKit Insider podcast, your hosts talk about the Sonos Move 2, the upcoming Matter 1.2 release, and more smart home news. Sonos launched the highly anticipated Move 2 this past week, with many of the rumored design changes and improvements. This portable speaker features a new color, better connectivity, dual drivers for stereo sound, updated controls, and much longer battery life. We also saw a few other smart home products launch, including new TP-Link Tapo cameras that work with HomeKit, the Sensible Blaze radiator controller, and a new Lutron pico remote with a paddle switch design. In addition to new products, we received word that Matter 1.2 could be launching soon, which has the potential to bring new product categories to the standard. Amazon has also added bridge support to its Matter devices. Tangentially related to smart home, we saw the continued release of Qi2 devices, this time from Zagg-owned Mophie. It has a range of new home and car chargers that support the new magnetic standard. Your hosts spent some time on a few mini reviews this week, including revisiting the Aqara U100 smart lock that supports Apple Home Key and Nomad's 3-in-1 MagSafe Charger. Finally, we got to work quickly on the new Brilliants Mart wall-powered panel which, while it looks great, has a few minor design issues.
