The MacRumors Show: tvOS 17, HomePod, and HomeKit Wishlist – What do we want to see?

Cupertino, July 31, 2023

In this week's episode of The MacRumors Show, we cover all the top features and improvements we'd like to see coming to tvOS 17, the HomePod, and HomeKit at WWDC later this year. Apple is expected to unveil tvOS 17 and "audioOS" 17 at WWDC in June, with a range of improvements and new features. TVOS 16 from 2022 was just a minor update to the Apple TV, so we're discussing where we want the OS to go with features like widgets, Up Next improvements, and apps like Weather and Home. We discuss how the ‌HomePod‌ could make better use of its top screen, true surround sound, and synchronized alarms. Last year, Apple's Home app got a significant upgrade with a complete redesign and a new ‌HomeKit‌ architecture. We take a look at how the Home app can take another step forward with more powerful automations and camera feed improvements. We also look at the latest Apple news, including iOS 17's rumored app, mood tracking functionality, new lock screen features, Apple Music and app library, iPadOS 17's Health app and Lock Screen customization, Apple's AI-powered health coaching service, 32- and 42-inch OLED screens planned for 2027, and more.
