HomeKit is set to get a major upgrade with iOS 16, including an all-new Home app, lock screen widgets, new Home key vendors, deeper Matter support, and more. The iPad can still be used as a HomeKit Home Hub, but only if you don’t want the latest HomeKit features. Apple’s rethinking of the Home app is perfect for a smart home setup built around HomeKit. Apple touts iOS 16 as improving overall HomeKit reliability. The iPad will not be supported as a home hub with the new architecture, users who rely on iPad for that purpose do not need to update the Home architecture and can continue enjoying all existing features. The video captured by your HSKW cameras is privately encrypted on your home hub . . .
