According to a recent report by Bloomberg, via The Verge, Apple is working on a new range of smart home devices that would expand its presence in the home space. The company is said to be developing a smaller display device that would be similar to the Google Nest Hub or Amazon’s Echo Show.
The device, which is expected to be similar to an iPad but less expensive and more geared towards home use, would come with a magnet for mounting and would primarily be used for FaceTime chats and controlling other smart home devices. The device is also expected to be able to solve the multi-user problem that currently makes iPads less suitable for home control use.
In addition to this, there have also been talks about larger smart home displays in the future. Apple is also said to be exploring a refresh of the Apple TV with a faster processor for the first half of 2024, but the device will not support 8k. The source also reported that the combination HomePod / Apple TV project also appears to have suffered setbacks but is still in the works.
It is worth noting that these smart displays are still a long way from launch and will not be available until early next year or possibly even later. This means that consumers will have to wait a bit longer before they can get their hands on these new devices.
However, the potential for these devices to revolutionize the way we interact with our smart home devices makes it an exciting prospect for many. The concept of having a device that can be used for FaceTime chats and controlling other smart home devices all in one place, potentially mounted on a wall or refrigerator, opens up a world of possibilities.
