Apple’s HomeKit Architecture Upgrade To Rollout Once Again With iOS 16.4

Apple is reportedly getting ready to have another try at launching its revamped HomeKit architecture, according to a new report.

The updated HomeKit architecture was supposed to be ready as part of the iOS 16.2 update but it was removed a week after launch due to a number of bugs that were discovered.

Many people found that their HomeKit accessories were no longer responsive following the update. Now, Nicolás Álvarez (@nicolas09F9) and Aaron (@aaronp613) report that iOS 16.4 is the update that will include the new version of the HomeKit architecture, although it isn’t yet clear when that will be available to the public.

It was believed that the first beta of iOS 16.4 could land right about now, but that didn’t happen. There’s also rumors ongoing about iOS 16.3.1 being in the works with the iOS 16.4 release being pushed back.

Apple says that the new HomeKit architecture will make for a more stable and reliable smart home environment, despite the fact that those who have already upgraded reporters experiencing anything but.

We can surely expect Apple to ensure that beta testers put the change through its paces before it decides to make it available to everyone, likely at some point in the next few weeks.

We also don’t know what other new features iOS 16.4 will bring, but we will surely find out once that first beta lands.
