Speaker 1: Our home is perhaps the most important place in our lives. And there is a lot to manage smart home accessories can make it easier and more convenient to control your home, right from your iPhone. You can do things like, see who's at the door while working at your desk, or turn off the lights downstairs without getting out of bed. And when you're away from home, you can double check if the front door is locked or adjust the temperature. So it's just right when you get back and your smart home is all the more powerful when your accessories work together, [00:00:30] reacting to changes automatically. Now the smart home is still in its early days, and we wanna help bring these powerful experiences to as many homes as possible in order to build a connected ecosystem at home. It's important that you have the most choice, so you don't have to worry about what works with what, with that in mind, we joined forces with other industry leaders to create a new, smart home connectivity standard it's called matter matter enables smart home accessories to work together across [00:01:00] platforms and to ensure we stay true to our values. Speaker 1: We contributed home kit, our smart home framework as the foundation of this new standard. So it's built on the same core principles and maintains the highest level of security industry. Leading brands have already committed to supporting matter with over 130 products in the pipeline. And that's just the beginning. The matter standard provides the underlying foundation to connect smart home accessories, and it allows us to innovate on top of it. [00:01:30] We take privacy further ensuring that data about how you use your accessories is processed and stored by default in a way that even apple can't see with matter, we can continue to create amazing experiences in the home app while also making sure all your different accessories are consistently simple to set up and easy to use. And now that you'll have more accessory options to choose from, let's check out how we made the experience even better with an all new home map. Speaker 1: We reimagined it from the ground up, starting with the underlying [00:02:00] architecture. So it's more efficient and reliable, especially for homes with many accessories. We also completely redesigned how you navigate, organize and view accessories to make it easier to control your smart home. We've integrated your rooms and favorites into the main tab of the app. So you can see your entire home in a single view. And we made sure it looks great, whether you're just getting started or have built out an advanced, connected home. We've added new categories for climate lights, [00:02:30] security, and more, and an overview of what's happening in each category, right at the top of the screen. And categories are a great way to navigate within the app. When you tap on a specific category, you see all the relevant accessories organized by room and more detailed status information. A multi-camera view displays up to four cameras at once front and center, and you can scroll to the right to see any additional cameras. We also redesigned tiles so that different Speaker 2: Accessories are more visually [00:03:00] recognizable through shape and color. And with the new widgets on the lock screen, it's easier than ever to see how your home is doing. So that's the all new home app and it's coming to iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Now that you have what you need to keep tabs on your home, you're ready to hit the road.
