In regards to my previous post I would ideally want all of these devices on their own physical network only accessible through a vpn device, but that would severely inhibit the convenience factor and score low on the Wife Approval Factor. It would also make the Apple TV not super useful for streaming. In either setup, deploying updates to the devices can sometimes be a hassle, if you’re wondering.
i still try to only get IoT devices I could “trust” even if they are segregated... so these cameras are right out or anything from google for that matter.

What happens if RING goes bust? Will your door refuse to open? etc etc etcSorry but not even Homekit is coming into my home.Call me a luddite if you wish but I'm one of those people who really cares about their privacy.
all this to say your distrust is not unwarranted, but there are things you can do to mitigate it and to have a better peace of mind while enjoying the convenience. It all comes down to what/who you want to trust and how much time and money you want to spend to set something up that you can be confident with and alleviate concerns of personal data being leaked.
Side note, I’ve always hated the term IoT, just don’t have a better general name for these stupid devices.

It does look better more centrally located, but I doubt Apple would do that since it would make the iPhone look far too similar to the Mate Pro 20. Some would probably say it would only be fair since others copy Apple all the time. Pretty sure Apple wouldn't think of it that way though.
Even though it looks better centrally located, it's still an ugly design imo. Apple should do something else. Considering these are still just rumors, chances are they will.
May it’s more functional in the corner base on how people hold there phone in portrait and landscape positions as well as not interfering with Qi charging and how it “balances” on a table without a case.
