According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple is developing an all-new smart home device that will rival products like the Meta Portal.
This device will be similar to an iPad and will be able to control HomeKit accessories and make FaceTime calls. The device could be mounted on walls or other areas in the home using magnets.
This new device is expected to be a low-end iPad, built specifically for controlling home appliances, lights, and other smart home accessories. It will also be able to play videos and make FaceTime calls.
This is not the first time Bloomberg has reported on Apple’s development of a smart home control device that combines an iPad-like display with a HomePod, similar to Amazon’s Echo Show.
The report suggests that Apple is planning to launch this new smart home device next year, possibly alongside an upgraded Apple TV set-top-box with a faster processor.

This move would solidify Apple’s position in the smart home market and provide a new way for users to control their home appliances and accessories.
As always, it’s important to take these reports with a grain of salt until Apple confirms the details themselves. We’ll have to wait and see what Apple has in store for the future of smart home technology.
