WWDC 24 preview, Flair Vents, & a portable Apple TV on HomeKit Insider

HomeKit Insider Podcast

On this episode of the HomeKit Insider Podcast, iOS 18 and WWDC are on the front of our mind, talk about Flair Vents, and more!

In the abbreviated episode, we start with the news, including information that we may see some Matter 1.3 devices in iOS 17.6. We spotted code references in the public-facing Matter repository that points to this.

We don't have a comprehensive list, but an Apple employee referenced a mid-2024 release for these features in the upcoming updates.

Friend of the show Sigmund Judge also shared how he created a portable Apple TV by modifying it into a self-contained device that he could bring out to WWDC. It's very cool to see.

After a suggestion from the audience, we talk about Flair Vents and how they can help fix dead spots in your home.

Lastly, we revisit all the rumors we expect to see at WWDC including better controls in Control Center, Siri improvements, and Matter.
