Apple said the first HomeKit enabled devices are coming next month, refusing a report which says that it wouldn’t be ready until August or September.
HomeKit has been available for just a few months and we already have dozens of partners who have committed to bringing HomeKit accessories to market and we’re looking forward to the first ones coming next month.
Apple announced about HomeKit a year ago at the Worldwide Developer Coneference last June, but Apple never set a official release date for first HomeKit devices.
The idea behind this was Apple could turn iPhone and iPad into a command system for devices like garage doors and locks, Company did’t reveled much about this at the time.
The company said it would use a command protocol to help devices communicate with each other and link securely with an iPhone or iPad.Apple also introduced the HomeKit hardware certification program in November last year.
