The air conditioner will sync with any iPhone automatically and allow the user to set parameters for the air conditioner directly without registration, set up passwords and other time consuming tasks the come with connecting an item to WiFi. Haier hopes to use Apple's MFi program for their other products, including water hearts, ovens, intelligent home accessories and more.
