LG confirms 2018 TV models will receive support for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit – The Verge

After much confusion, LG has confirmed that AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support will be coming to some of its 2018 TV models, in addition to its newer 2019 and 2020 TVs. “LG’s 2018 TVs will add support for Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit later this year,” the company’s official UK Twitter account tweeted, and said more details would be shared as the features become available. LG UK also said that the Apple TV app is also now available worldwide for the company’s 2018 OLED and Super UHD LCD TVs.

AirPlay 2 allows iPhone and iPad users to easily stream content from their devices to compatible LG TVs, while HomeKit support lets you control and integrate a TV with Apple’s smart home ecosystem. According to a tracker put together by FlatPanelsHD, various combinations of the features are already available for select Samsung and Sony TVs dating back to 2018, and Vizio TVs dating back to 2016.

Customers worldwide can now enjoy the Apple TV app on LG 2018 OLED and Super UHD TVs, with UHD TV models to follow. LG’s 2018 TVs will add support for Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit later this year, and more details will be shared when these features become available

Confusion over whether LG’s 2018 TVs would get support for the features emerged last week when LG’s UK Twitter account said it had “no plans” to update its pre-2019 TVs with support for AirPlay 2 or HomeKit, MacRumors reports. However, that tweet has since been deleted. Previously, a support document indicated they’d be arriving on select 2018 LG TVs by October. AirPlay 2 and HomeKit were first released for LG’s 2019 TVs way back in July 2019.

The Apple TV app, meanwhile, started rolling out for LG’s 2018 TVs back in August, after arriving on its 2019 TVs back in February.
