HomeKit support will allow users to control their TV with Apple’s smart home ecosystem, while AirPlay 2 will let them stream content from their iPhone or iPad to their TV. It’s worth noting that similar features are already available on other 2018 TV models from manufacturers like Sony and Samsung.
This official announcement comes after LG previously tweeted that it didn’t have any plans to update its pre-2019 TVs to support AirPlay 2 or HomeKit.
