Apple Inc further continues to be an advocate for innovative, futuristic designs, this time by launching an app called “Home” that’s mostly going to manage the smart devices in the company’s Home Kit. But it will most likely only run on the brand’s upcoming iOS9 and will unfortunately only affect a very small number of Apple users.
9to5Mac says that the Home app is really basic, only allowing for things such as Home Kit device setup and organization, and discovery of apps included in the Home Kit. It will also be using Apple TV as a connection hub, and be guided by the iPhone.
That’s merely the start however, as Apple Inc wants to eventually get the high-tech platform to do things like unlock the front door, open the garage, or manage security cameras, simplifying our lives even further and allowing us to save a little more time every day.
According to a report, if you tell Siri that you’d like the house to get ready for bed, the software will start to dim the lights and lower the thermostat.
9to5Mac strongly believes that Apple Inc will be offering a lot more details on this project and others at next month’s Worldwide Developers’ Conference in San Francisco (WWDC). Experts are also fairly certain that both the Home app and iOS9 will be launched at this event.
The app’s icon will be a simple-looking one that shows a houseglyph sitting on a dark yellow background.
While rumors of software stabilization issued delaying the launch did not hesitate to appear, the company does indeed have a history of launching major updates and new products, or product lines, and announcing future projects during the Worldwide Developers’ Conference.
It was after all during last year’s Worldwide Developers’ Conference that Apple Inc announced that it’s working on the Home app, and Apple’s recent press release for Worldwide Developers’ Conference 2015 clearly stated that “at WWDC, Apple’s renowned developer community will come together to learn about the future of iOS”.
It’s a typical, cryptic, corporate message that doesn’t state outright what exactly the company will be talking about, but it says enough that Apple Inc lovers and experts in the field can deduce what’s to come based on internet rumors, gossip, and information leaks.
It’s important to note that Apple has been working on Home Kit for about 11 months now, fine tuning the system and working out the bugs, so expectations are high among fans and critics alike.
This year te Apple Worldwide Developers Conference will take place between June 8 and June 12, in San Francisco
