HomeKit Architecture Improvement Made Available in iOS 16.4 Beta Version
Due to the HomeKit faults that it created, the iOS 16.4 beta that Apple sent to developers today reinstated the HomeKit architectural change that was removed from iOS 16.2.
After updating to iOS 16.4, iPhone and iPad users who have not yet made the switch to the new architecture can notice a “Home Upgrade Available” option in the Software Update section of the Home app.
Since Apple has been working on the HomeKit architecture behind the scenes for some time, there were indications that it will be returned in iOS 16.4 as early as January. Apple has produced a revised update with fewer issues that would affect HomeKit customers.
Since the release of iOS 16 at WWDC in June 2022, Apple has been working on a new HomeKit architecture intended to increase the dependability and effectiveness of communication between smart home accessories and Apple devices.
Due to the initial launch, several HomeKit devices disappeared from HomeKit settings or became stuck in the “configuring/updating” state. Also, it led to the failure of requests to share the Home with others, preventing certain users from using HomeKit Secure Video recording.
