Apple to launch a smart home platform at WWDC?
Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference is just a week away, and the Internet is full of rumors regarding what to expect. We’ve heard Apple is working hard on bringing us more health-oriented features for iOS 8, aside from the possibility of some hardware being launched as well. What’s interesting is that the rumors don’t stop there, as apparently Apple has more up its sleeve.
The company is rumored to launch a smart home platform at the event, to compete with rival offerings from Google’s acquisition of Nest, and even Samsung. The service will apparently be similar to what we already see in the market, where you can control some of your home appliances with your iPhone or iPad. What isn’t clear is how Apple plans to differentiate its offerings from the competition, which some assume might include some iBeacon magic to get the job done.
Whatever the case may be, Apple might pull-out another hobby here, as its previous attempts with products like the Apple TV, haven’t been as popular as the company would’ve wanted.
