Apple seems to be ready to make headlines at its Worldwide Developer Conference on June 2nd with its entrance in home automation.
reported today that Apple would unveil software that will allow an iPhone to control home lighting, security systems, and other appliances at its conference.
The report claims that other companies will be allowed to make products specifically designed for the iPhone's smart home features, as long as they meet certain privacy limitations and quality checks -- much like those in its existing Made for iPhone program.
Analysts have predicted that the next iPhone could include NFC, which might be one method of enabling smart home features. Other options that would allow existing devices to access such features include Apple's iBeacon or Wi-Fi.
Apple began expanding iOS into new places earlier this year with the release of the CarPlayin-car dashboard.
Google has also purchased Nest and its intelligent thermostat and smoke detector earlier this year, while companies like LG and Samsung have implemented touchscreens and mobile connectivity to their home appliances.
