Only 10% use their handheld device or app to control smart home devices — Apparently, we’re not using our iPhones and Siri to their full capability.

Apple sets up office near HQ of outgoing graphics tech supplier Imagination Technologies — Apple has reportedly opened an office in St. Albans in the UK, just a few miles away from the Kings Langley headquarters of its outgoing mobile graphics partner, Imagination Technologies.
The space measures 22,500 square feet, and is dedicated to developing proprietary graphics technology, The Telegraph said. The company is likely hoping to recruit more people away from Imagination, which currently makes about half of its revenues from the iPhone and iPad maker. Apple announced plans to migrate away from Imagination earlier this year, prompting the latter’s shares to plummet. In late June, Imagination stated it was looking to sell itself.
