Company promises other MFI appliances down the road
Chinese manufacturer Haier has announced the first-ever appliance to receive Apple's "Made For i" certification, something normally reserved for products like cases and speakers. The Tianzun air conditioner will be configurable via Wi-Fi, using an iOS app. Haier says that future products, such as ovens and water heaters, will gain the same technology.
