Latest iOS Updates, Matter Devices, and More Featured on HomeKit Insider

Cupertino, December 1, 2023

On this week's episode of the HomeKit Insider podcast, we talk about more newly released products, some fun upcoming software updates, and get started with a new Find My-enabled wallet. Now that iOS 17.1 is out the door, we're in the next beta phase of Apple's software. With the new updates, we have a few small, but notable changes to walk through. On iOS 17.2 we have new toggles for the Home app. This allows you to shoot in front of unknown people, and not make all the people strong when they show up at your home. Then on tvOS 17.2, Apple redesigned the TV app. A new sidebar will now appear that allows you to quickly jump between your different streaming apps. In other news, Orvibo announced an update that brings Matter to its smart dimmer switch, Belkin launched a new 2-in-1 MagSafe charger, and Onvis released a new security contact sensor. We got to work with some interesting devices this week. We checked out Bezzo's AirTag-equipped Armonica wallet and a 3D printed case for your Mac mini.
