Ring, a smart home device line owned by Amazon, may finally be releasing support for Apple’s HomeKit smart home platform nearly three years after promising to do so.
The news comes after a Twitter user noticed that Ring gained HomeKit certification on Apple’s MFi licensing page.

HomeKit support for Ring devices was delayed from 2016 to 2018. Many believed that it was unlikely the devices would receive support for Apple’s smart home ecosystem following Amazon acquiring the company.
However, in February of last year, Amazon promised that Ring devices would eventually receive HomeKit support.
Since an official announcement has yet to occur, it could be some time before the devices get the HomeKit functionally.
