LG is adding Apple's AirPlay 2 and HomeKit to its 2019 TV lineup the company has confirmed.
The news follows confirmation from others including Samsung earlier in the year and follows speculation as to whether LG would follow Samsung and add AirPlay 2. What many didn't expect however was that the Korean company would also add HomeKit support at the same time.
By doing so, it breaks away from Samsung's AirPlay 2 offering. Many have speculated that Samsung didn't announce HomeKit support because it presumably wants to keep people within its SmartThings ecosystem instead.
HomeKit support means you'll be able to control devices like thermostats that are within Apple's ecosystem.
There was also no mention of older LG TVs being given the tech; Samsung's 2018 TVs were also included in its announcement, but it seems like it's 2019-only for LG.
During its keynote LG also announced the awesome Signature OLED TV R rollable TV. Yes, it really does roll up.
