Charter Communications (NASDAQ:CHTR) is collaborating with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) to deliver a superior Internet connectivity experience that prioritizes privacy and security through Apple's HomeKit technology. Charter plans to support HomeKit as part of the Spectrum Connectivity Platform later this year to offer enhanced security and privacy to Apple customers, and an easier process to onboard certified consumer devices to its customers' home network.

On the Spectrum Connectivity Platform, HomeKit will enable Apple customers to restrict their HomeKit-certified devices from communicating with unauthorized Internet services and improve privacy and security of smart homes. While the solution is an additional layer of protection for Apple HomeKit users, Charter says it is open to working with additional companies.
