Apple Software Boss Craig Federighi Says They Have No Intention To Make Mac A “Home Hub”

According to ‘Spectrum Report’, they have reached out to Apple’s software chief, Craig Federighi, that if Apple plans to make the Mac a ‘Home Hub’ since the Home app will be available once customers installed macOS Mojave, the latest operating system designed for Mac that will release in this fall.

In an email response, Federighi simply says that Apple does not have any intention to make the Mac as a “home hub’ for automation. Instead, he claimed that Apple TV is the preferred device for that purpose. Other devices that suites the feature are HomePod, as well as iPad.

Hi Jackson,

At WWDC earlier this month we announced that in the next release of macOS (Mojave), we are bringing the Home app to the Mac. With the Home app you will be able to control your accessories, monitor cameras, and receive notifications. We are not, however, making the Mac a “home hub” for automation. (The Apple TV is the preferred device for that purpose).

-Craig Federighi

In my opinion, it’ll be nice to control your smart home accessories on a Mac rather than turn on your Apple TV and remote controls your smart home products, which is not easy to use with it. What do you think of it?
