iOS 9 lets you control your HomeKit devices from iCloud

Apple discussed HomeKit briefly on Monday during WWDC 2015 when it talked about how users will be able to interact with HomeKit devices using iOS 9 products. With iOS 9, you’ll be able to control gadgets with iCloud.

Apple didn’t specifically name a single app — we had originally expected a new application named “Home” — but it did say that users will be able to dive into iCloud to control everything. That includes smart outlets, light switches and, for the first time, smart window shades.

HomeKit devices started to ship earlier this month, and more are expected soon.
