During this episode of the HomeKit Insider Podcast, we discuss a pair of new HomeKit air purifiers, revisit an iconic product we wish Apple would revive, and review the Roborock S7 MaxV smart home vacuum.

This past week we have news about two new air purifiers. Smartmi launched the second generation of their flagship device, this time baking in UV sterilization at the same time. This allows the Smartmi Air Purifier 2 to sanitize your air as it purifies it.

We also heard rumors surrounding a new purifier from Airversa. The Airversa purifier is rumored to support Thread, making it the first such device to support the new connectivity standard.

Andrew then reviews the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra robotic vacuum. This autonomous device is able to traverse your home while both mopping and vacuuming the floors. Best yet, it is all controlled via Siri.

Finally, we round out the show with some discussion on some forgotten Apple products as well as an easy way to create your own HomeKit coffee maker.
