World News – US – HomePod mini is the first Apple to support Thread networking technology


Reported by MacRumors, Apple’s new HomePod mini, which was announced today at the company’s “Hi, Speed” event, will be Apple’s first device to take supports low consumption Thread networking technology

Thread is a low-power IP network technology for connecting Internet of Things (IoT) devices, providing a secure, mesh-based system that facilitates the creation of a device ecosystem

Apple is currently in alliance with Amazon, Google and other companies called Project Connected Home over IP, which would use Thread to make devices more easily compatible with various smart assistants.

Although Thread is essentially independent of the application layers running on it, it can support multiple layers and can play a role in Project Connected Home over IP, the alliance of Apple, Amazon, from Google and other companies looking to make it easier to build devices compatible with multiple ecosystems such as Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant

According to the report, however, it appears that Thread support for the HomePod mini is currently limited to HomeKit devices

For now, however, Apple says in a footnote that HomePod mini’s Thread support is limited to HomeKit devices, so the technology cannot be leveraged across multiple platforms yet and it how Apple will adopt Thread remains to be seen forward

Thread is, for now, shrouded in mystery as to how Apple plans to use it in the future, but it’s good to know the HomePod mini will have the tech for whatever those plans are. The new HomePod mini will be available for pre-order on November 6 and will ship on November 16
