During WWDC 2019 earlier this year, Apple announced a new feature that would be coming to its HomeKit platform in the form of Secure Video. For those who are unfamiliar with HomeKit Secure Video, this is aimed at users who record video footage using smart security camera systems that are also HomeKit enabled.
It will also allow them to encrypt their video footage before it is uploaded and stored in your iCloud account where you will be able to review them for yourself. Now, the feature did not launch alongside the release of iOS 13, but the good news is that it looks like we could be getting close to seeing its release.
This is because in a screenshot posted onto Reddit, it shows the user interface of HomeKit Secure Video. According to the comments made on the post, it seems that this is part of the iOS 13.2 beta which suggests that Apple is already testing it and getting it ready for launch in the next update to its iOS platform.
We’re not sure when iOS 13.2 will be released or if it is a guarantee that HomeKit Secure Video will be part of it, but it could be of interest to those with compatible devices. At the moment, brands such as Logitch, Eufy, Netamo, and Robin will be supporting HomeKit Secure Video at launch.
