Apple’s promise to launch a variety of new products throughout 2014 has not yet been fulfilled. When CEO Tim Cook made that statement in a Quarterly Earnings conference call, the tech world speculated as to what the company had in store. A rumored iWatch, iPad Pro, and revamped Apple TV have all been contemplated. Today, 9to5Mac is reporting that Apple has plans to enter the smart home market with gadgets and gizmos that will link to iOS 8’s HomeKit software developer kit.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple is looking into developing hardware for the smart home market and has gathered a team to work on products for the home that will integrate with preexisting devices like the iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.
