Apple has slowly but surely built out its efforts in the home. The company's most notable product for the home is most likely the Apple TV 4K and HomePod mini, Apple's tiny smart speaker that replaced the original and overpriced HomePod.

Most of Apple's other efforts in the home are software-based like the company's support of Thread and Matter in its HomeKit technologies.
