    HomeKit Philips Hue and Apple Home App No Longer Sync with Each Other?

    I used to be able to make changes in the Apple Home app (changing the name of a room for example) and the Philips Hue app would give the option to sync changes. Since the latest Hue app overhaul it seems this is no longer the case. Can anyone else confirm?
