Eve Systems has announced the release of a new update to the popular Eve for HomeKit app on Thursday. Version 5 of the Eve for HomeKit app, available now on the App Store, adds support for the iPhone 12 line and the latest iOS 14, iPadOS 14, and macOS Big Sur features.

Headlining the release is support for macOS Big Sur for the latest M1-equipped Macs. Now for the first time, users can view, control, and manage HomeKit accessories, scenes, and automation, right from the comforts of macOS. The macOS version of the Eve for HomeKit also includes a new sidebar navigation system that puts favorites, accessory types, and rooms a click away.

Eve also now utilizes the screen resolutions of the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, while iPad users can admire a new, fully native sidebar. You can also enable a dark app icon alternative by heading to Settings > Appearance.

Other highlights include new scheduling options for the Eve Light Strip and the Eve Thermo, as well as tweaks for the way information is presented from the Eve Degree and Eve Room sensors. Finally, Eve has updated its App Store privacy details to reaffirm its commitment to user privacy by stating that it does not harvest personal data or use data for advertising purposes.
