LG has renewed its plan to bring AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support to 2018 TV models after backtracking on its promise in late August.

Back in April, following a petition, LG announced that its 2018 UK/SK series and OLED B8-Z8 series televisions would get AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support by October 2020.

However, on August 26th, LG tweeted:

Hi there, LG has no plans to update its pre-2019 TVs with Airplay2 or Homekit unfortunately. Apologies for the inconvenience caused! — LG UK (@LGUK) August 26, 2020

Today, possibly due to uproar from customers, the same account tweeted:

Customers worldwide can now enjoy the Apple TV app on LG 2018 OLED and Super UHD TVs, with UHD TV models to follow. LG's 2018 TVs will add support for Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit later this year, and more details will be shared when these features become available — LG UK (@LGUK) September 7, 2020
