MagSafe travel chargers and more smart home news

Cupertino, July 31, 2023

On this week's episode of the HomeKit Insider podcast, your hosts discuss promised iOS features that never arrived, talk about new smart home tech, and discuss some of the MagSafe travel chargers. This week, Onvis released a new Matter-enabled smart plug that is fully compatible with Apple Home. It's not flashy, but it's affordable and supports many platforms thanks to Matter. Apple is now working on the fourth developer beta of iOS 17. No new smart home features were found in this update, but we were curious to see what happened to Apple's promised features. The ability to use Find My on your Apple TV remote hasn't arrived in any of the betas, and the sharing of Home Key, due for release in 2022, is also MIA. While not specifically related to smart home, your hosts did a mini review of the new Beats Studio Pro and how they compare to the existing AirPods Max. Finally, your hosts share their thoughts on portable MagSafe chargers. We've gone through a few different brands and styles to power your iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch on the go.
