LG firms release to mid 2019 for smart TVs with AirPlay 2 support
LG today announced Tuesday it will release a software update for its smart TVs with AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support in “mid-year” 2019, firming up its already-planned support for Apple’s two content platforms.
AirPlay 2 support will allow users to stream videos, music, and photos, and directly from an iPhone, iPad, and Mac to select LG smart TVs. HomeKit support will enable users to control those TV models using Siri voice commands or the Home app on iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
AirPlay 2-enabled TVs from LG will include its 2019 OLED, NanoCell SM9X, LG NanoCell SM8X, and UHD UM7X models, according to Apple’s compatibility list.
LG announced in January it would support the Apple technologies. Samsung, Sony, and Vizio also plan to release AirPlay 2-enabled smart TVs this year.
