At this year's WWDC, Apple announced its new smart home platform for developers called HomeKit.
Apple has partnered with a bunch of smart-device makers so that you can pair these gadgets with your iPhone easily.
The HomeKit platform will integrate with Siri, which means you can simply issue a command through your iPhone to manipulate the devices in your home.
For example, telling Siri to get ready for bed will prompt your lights to dim, your garage door to lock, and your thermostat to lower the temperature.
The announcement comes after rumors had suggested that Apple is getting into home automation. Just a few days ago The Financial Times reported that the software will enable users to control gadgets in their home with their iPhone.
Apple didn't spend too much time at WWDC talking about HomeKit, but we're likely to hear more about it as developers and Apple's hardware partners integrate the platform into their products.
