Since April this year, a petition has been pending from LG smart TV owners for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support for 2018 models. Initially, LG reported that 2018 TVs would not receive support.
The South Korean company has reversed that decision and has announced in a tweet that support for Apple HomeKit and AirPlay 2 will be added later this year. Among others, OLED TVs with the number eight in the name, such as the B8, C8, W8 are eligible.
AirPlay 2 is Apple's technology for streaming videos, photos and music from an Apple device to supported televisions. HomeKit makes it possible to control TVs with the Apple Home app or with voice assistant Siri.
