Apple To Focus on Home Automation?


Apple has not released its iGlasses. We are still waiting for the iWatch. But that does not mean Apple is not exploring new markets. Home automation is a growing field, so it is only natural that a company such as Apple is interested in getting involved. Apple is expected to announce a new software platform at WWDC on June 2 that focuses on home automation. The new platform will enable third-party device makers to make their gadgets work on Apple’s automation system.

As Financial Times has reported, iPhones could soon turn on the lights automatically. The market has a lot of upside, and Apple is not completely new to it. Apple’s iBeacon technology is already quite useful and exciting. Apple has not confirmed these rumors, but we should hear more about this story soon.
