Earlier this year, Sony announced that some of its higher-end TVs would add support for Apple’s AirPlay 2 and HomeKit protocols. Now, Sony is bringing that support to more TVs.
AirPlay 2 will allow users to stream content directly from their iPhone, iPad or Mac, and with HomeKit support, users will be able to control their compatible TV using Siri or the Home app.
As we noted when AirPlay 2 and HomeKit landed on Sony’s Z9G Series 8K LCDs, A9G Series OLEDs and X950G 4K LCD TVs, the update blends Apple’s tech with the Android TV platform. There’s no technical reason this can’t happen, but it’s still interesting to see.
