After promising it a few months ago, LG has finally started rolling out a series of firmware updates to its 2018 LG TVs so that are compatible with AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. At first the idea was scrapped, but the company changed its mind for the sake of all buyers.
Some MacRumors readers have warned of the novelty, which allows these TV models to be compatible with the AirPlay 2 platform and play content from our iPhone, iPad or Mac. Integration with HomeKit also allows us to turn the TV on, off, and adjust the volume using the iPhone controls or with voice commands via Siri.
Apple content, more accessible
This generation of LG televisions also offers the installation of the TV application from which we can buy and rent movies in digital format and subscribe to the Apple TV + service. All we have to do is search for the app in the LG App Store.
To update LG TV software you must have connected it to the internet, over a network cable or over Wi-Fi. The update should automatically ignore you, although in its preferences menus you can force it manually. Each TV may have different menus, so we recommend that you consult the LG manual if you cannot see it very clearly.
Thank you very much to all of you who have informed us of the news!
