According to an article from MacRumors, LG is rolling out a software update to its 2018 Smart TVs to enable AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support. I personally own a 2016 model and I donโ€™t expect to receive such update anytime soon. As a software-only solution, I donโ€™t see why they couldnโ€™t make it happen for 2016 models too. When you think about Apple supporting iPhone models dating back to 2015 with iOS 14, we have to wonder whoโ€™s playing programmed obsolescence here. As someone whoโ€™s looking to upgrade its 2016 LG Smart TV to a 2020 model, which will support HDR, Dolby Atmos, AirPlay 2, HomeKit and have a 120 Hz refresh rate, I donโ€™t appreciate LG approach to brand loyalty building.
