Ikea previously released HomeKit support just over 3 weeks ago in the US for its smart blinds. However, after 2 weeks of silence and no further rollout to the rest of the world, Ikea halted its HomeKit updated citing technical issues.
While Ikea has not formally confirmed the HomeKit rollout, but based on confirmations from multiple users from Various countries. It now looks like the roll out is official and appears to be stable.
To get the update to enable HomeKit support for the smart blinds, you need to go to the update section in the Ikea Home Smart app. If the update is not showing, users report that unplugging the Tradfri hub will force the update. Once you Tradfri hub has been updated to 1.10.29, your Ikea smart blinds will appear in the Home App.
