Haier air conditioner becomes first 'Made For i'-certified appliance

updated 12:54 pm EST, Wed January 8, 2014

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.

Apple has been slowly allowing more hardware to shoot for MFI certification. The most recent wave has been game controllers like the Signal RP One and the Logitech PowerShell.
