At the 2014 CES show in Las Vegas in January, Haier announced it had become the only appliance maker to globally pass Apple's official MFi authorization and certification tests. Haier's Tianzun air conditioner became the first appliance to be labeled with the official Apple MFi certification logo.

Now media outlets are reporting that Apple is working with various Chinese appliance companies, including Haier, in order to grow its smart home business in China.

Media outlet Wantchinatimes reported on cooperation between Haier's U-home business and Apple. The media outlet quoted Li li, who leads U-home, and who said the Haier/Apple cooperative effort will focus first on air purification appliances—a response to China's worsening air quality.
