WWDC HomeKit predictions, Hue Matter update delays and more smart home news

Cupertino, August 1, 2023

On this week's episode of the Homekit Insider podcast, your hosts speculate what HomeKit and Matter updates might arrive at WWDC, discuss two new products, and discuss other home automation news of the week. On March 29, Apple officially announced WWDC. Your hosts speculate during this episode what news Apple might be sharing relevant to the smart home, including a redesigned HomePod with a screen or an updated homeOS. Apple's impending updates are predicted by the full release of iOS 16.4 and the initial beta release of 16.5, both of which will bring smart home changes. These were accompanied by updates for Apple's other platforms. This week we also had news from Eve about the Matter rollout and Hue delaying the Matter update. We saw a new update to the Home Widgets app to enable new shortcut actions on the lock screen. Finally, we revisit the Sonos Era 300 review, review the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra and get hands-on with the Zen's 4-in-1 MagSafe charger.
