Confusion over whether LG’s TVs from 2018 would support the features appeared last week when LG’s British Twitter account said they had no “plans” to update their TVs before 2019 with support for AirPlay 2 or HomeKit, MacRumors reports. However, that tweet page has been deleted. Earlier, a support document indicated that they would arrive at selected LG TVs in 2018 by October. AirPlay 2 and HomeKit were first released for LG’s 2019 TVs way back in July 2019.
The Apple TV app, meanwhile, began rolling out for LG’s 2018 TVs back in August, after arriving its TVs in 2019 back in February.
