Unlike all electronics brands, Apple has no longer been participating in the Consumer Electronics Show for 28 years: this year, during the most important consumer electronics fair in the world, new devices compatible with Siri and HomeKit will be unveiled at CES 2020 for the smart home.
Cupertino's participation in CES 2020 already leaked in early December 2019: the multinational will not have its own stand but Jane Horvath, Apple's senior director who deals with privacy, will participate in a round table dedicated to privacy and security, together with other executives Facebook, Procter & Gamble, and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), a US government lens that deals with consumer protection and competition management.
But Apple will also indirectly be present in another way, because new smart home devices compatible with Siri and HomeKit will be unveiled at CES 2020, according to Bloomberg. The news for the smart home will be introduced by other brands such as Netatmo / Legrand and will compete for visibility with the news coming from Amazon Alexa and Google. The financial headline clearly states that there are no hardware innovations arriving directly from Cupertino on the days of the event.
However, it is not specified if during the event novelties will be revealed on the new universal home automation platform, an initiative that Apple joined at the end of 2019 in collaboration with Amazon, Google, Samsung Zigbee, IKEA and numerous other leading brands of technology. and not only.
