Your HomeKit Insider podcast hosts go in-depth on the Apple Vision Pro's visionOS plus tvOS, break down some new smart light news, and update you on the best smarthome news of the week.
Signify, maker of both the Wiz and Philips Hue lineups of smart lights, had. quite a bit of news to share this week.
Wiz, the more affordable product line, has a few new smart lights out including a full-color filament bulb. Not even Philips Hue offers a color filament bulb.
On the Hue side, there are new color and shapes for various smart lights. The Hue app was also updated with a new brightness balancer to independently adjust the brightness of bulbs in entertainment areas.
Finally, we test out visionOS thanks to the new Vision Pro simulator in the newest beta of Xcode.
