Apple will no longer let you use an iPad as a home hub to control HomeKit accessories starting with iOS 16. Text apparently found in iOS 16’s second developer beta by MacRumors contributing writer Steve Moser spells out the change.
Ipad will no longer be supported as a home hub. Text in the home app reportedly reads:’you will not be able to view shared homes until those homes are also upgraded to the latest HomeKit’.
Apple’s iOS 16 preview webpage says that’only Apple TV and homepod are supported as home hubs’. Apple did n’t immediately reply to a request for comment.
