Apple has their own plans to prove their eminence in home automation segment also as they have introduced some related products last year. We have seen many other manufacturers also who brought similar products during this time. However the growth of this segment is a little slower than others. There are a lot of alternatives available here and it has confused a lot of people to choose a particular brand. People close to the industry were hoping that Apple may take a step ahead and will try to bring some unique things for their customers. Now it seems that Apple has taken the step and some reports are claiming that Apple is planning to bring their own HomeKit app.
It is certainly not easy for customer to check different products under this category. Every category has its own app and many times customers get confused how to manage all these things. It may be frustrating at times. Therefore Apple is looking to provide one step solution to their customers. People now may not have to check some third-party apps to control different devices. This HomeKit app by Apple may have features to manage different devices without any difficulty.
This new HomeKit app is expected to be available with the next operating system by Apple. Company may launch this product along with iOS 10. Some experts are claiming that Apple already received the trademark for the “Home” icon for this feature. It is still not clear why Apple didn’t bring a dedicated app for this feature. Most of the specialists were hoping the same last year also. However Apple didn’t bring it. Therefore it will be interesting to see if Apple is planning for it this year or not.
Some new leaks are also revealing that Apple has filed some related patents. Therefore the chances are high that Apple may bring something related to it very soon. There are some reports that some of the patents may go beyond home automation which is hinting for some other products also. Apple may make some more changes in technological field very soon. They have changed the smartphone industry and now they are entering to some other sections also to bring more changes. This may bring some new methods to use different equipments. Currently there is no information about the official release. We hope we get some more details very soon.
