iOS 16.4 Introduces Apple's Updated HomeKit Architecture

Cupertino, August 3, 2023

Apple is set to reintroduce the upgraded HomeKit architecture in the upcoming iOS 16.4 update, confirming previous reports. The backend code suggests that Apple is prepared to release the updated Home architecture that was initially launched with the iOS 16.2 update but later removed due to bugs and installation issues. Apple had previously stated that the removal was temporary and that the upgrade option would be available again soon. Now, new code references indicate that the architecture will indeed make a comeback with the release of iOS 16.4, starting with the first beta which may be released this week. Apple claims that the update will enhance the reliability and efficiency of communication between smart home accessories and Apple devices, a feature they have been working on since the announcement of iOS 16 at WWDC in June 2022. The initial release of the Home architecture caused some problems such as disappearing ‌‌HomeKit‌‌ devices, issues with home sharing invitations, and broken ‌‌HomeKit‌‌ secure video recording for some users.
