In addition, the tablet is also intended for watching videos and FaceTime. The iPad Home is therefore expected to work well with Apple TV, so that you can easily continue the series you are watching in another room. This way, you can also watch your favorite movie or series while cooking.
This is what the iPad Home will look like
The HomeKit smart display probably has the design we know from the newer iPads. The tablet is expected to have no home button and is relatively thin and light.
The big difference with the iPad: you can attach this tablet magnetically, so that you can hang the iPad Home indoors. This makes it feel even more like the tablet is part of your smart home.
The HomeKit smart display should connect the HomePod (mini) and Apple TV even more. Ultimately, it will be a device that combines the speaker, Apple TV and FaceTime camera.
