What are you doing with HomeKit? Do you know? Does anyone on your team know? Because Siri doesn’t know. After the latest update (to 16.3?) things will work in the morning but absolutely not in the evening. Or vice versa. Or my HomePods will no longer recognize my voice. Enter password. Enter your password. Enter your password on every HomePod you own. Enter again.
Apple could have knocked it out of the park with HomeKit and the associated HomePod line of hardware. But no, it’s taken a back seat and no one knows why. Promises of things getting better and easier to navigate and more reliable fall by the wayside.
We need more love for HomeKit. Full stop. I want my home automation to live in the better security of iCloud but more importantly I want it to be reliable.
It’s not reliable right now.
The company has BILLIONS of dollars, but investing in fixing HomeKit isn’t even on their radar. They just don’t care. And it’s quickly getting to the point that I don’t either.
I completely agree. My HomeKit experience has not been good and I keep hoping for more in the spirit of “Apple wouldn’t let something like this be this consistently bad” but apparently I’m very wrong. Apple today is not the Apple that did things like create the iPhone. They’re really starting to become just another corporation focused on profit.
