Twitter user Tech Crtr (opens in new tab) came across the update in the footnotes for Apple’s iOS 16 Preview (the tweet shows it as footnote 12, but Apple’s website lists it as footnote 14). If the final version of iOS 16 keeps this update after the beta phase, the only currently available devices that could serve as home hubs would be Apple TV and the HomePod mini. Apple is rumored to be working on a new HomePod version, but the full-sized smart speaker is currently discontinued — though Apple still supports it.
