Apple promises to add support for the Matter smart home standard in an upcoming iOS 16 software update which is set to release later this fall.
The Home app in iOS 16 makes it easier for users to navigate, organize and view their accessories, and enhancements to the underlying architecture offer users more efficient and reliable control of their smart home.
Once the Matter smart home connectivity standard becomes ready later this fall, a software update for iOS 16 will add support for it. This will allow a wide range of accessories to work together across platforms and contribute to the realization of the smart home concept.
The iOS 16 developer beta is now available for Apple developer program members, read HERE on how to install the iOS 16 developer beta on iPhone. The iOS 16 public beta will be available in July 2022, while the iOS 16 stable version update will be available for free for everyone later this fall on compatible iPhones, check HERE.
