As reported by CNBC , Apple has hired an ex-manager from Microsoft. Apple now seems to be putting more emphasis on its smart home sector, because the Cupertino-based company only recently took over the start-up Pullstring .
Pullstring specializes in toys with language support. With the takeover of the company, Apple could take a big step towards connected living and attract a younger audience in particular.
With the introduction of HomeKit a few years ago, Apple already proved that Apple wants to play an increasingly important role in the living room. The HomePod was another important step for Apple, because the smart speaker has integrated the in-house voice assistant Siri.
Sam Jadallah was a former manager at Microsoft and founded the Smart Lock company Otto. However, the company flopped - which is not least due to the impressive price of $ 700 for a smart door lock.
Sam will now probably incorporate his experience with the technologies at Apple and we are already excited about what to expect here in the next few months / years.
