Sylvania announced two lighting products for Apple’s HomeKit ecosystem. The Sylvania Smart+ A19 Soft White LED Bulb puts out 800 lumens, the equivalent of a 60 watt incandescent lightbulb. It’s dimmable, and joins the full color A19 already on the market. The Sylvania Smart+ Full Color LED Flex Strip supports both full color and dimming. It puts out 400 lumens, or roughly the equivalent of a 30 watt incandescent bulb. Neither light requires a hub for on-off functionality, but work in Apple’s HomeKit ecosystem with hubs like an Apple TV, HomePod, or an iPad. Using a hub, users can automate the lights and access them remotely. I’m stoked to see new HomeKit products hit the market, and these ship on October 23rd. They’re on Amazon now, listed as out-of-stock. The Smart+ A19 Soft White LED Bulb is $25.99, while the Smart+ Full Color LED Flex Strip is $59.99.

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend and are into playing with pre-release software, Apple’s public betas of macOS High Sierra 10.13.1, iOS 11.1, and tvOS 11.1 are out.
You don’t need to stay up all night to finish watching your movie rental anymore, unless you’re really into that sort of thing.
tvOS 11 for Apple’s fourth generation Apple TV was released on Tuesday AirPlay 2 support, along with a revamped TV app with live sports.
In the “strange, but true” category, Jeff Butts has discovered that neither macOS High Sierra or iOS 11 seem to support 4K content from iTunes yet.
Apple TV finally got 4K video support on Tuesday when Apple showed off a new model during its “Let’s meet at our place” media event.
Apple’s online store was replaced with the familiar “We’ve got something special in store for you” sign early Tuesday morning ahead of today’s “Let’s meet at our place” media event.
