I went to upgrade my Home to Matter today only to find that the iPad is no longer supported as a Hub. I don't have any need for the main functions of either Homepod or Apple TV so I have no devices to act as a home hub save this one iPad.
One clue for me is the Home app on my phone and iPad say that a "supported third-party border router" is another option. I've tried Googling this without any luck and I don't think I've got a grasp on how these work.
Does anyone know if any third-party routers actually exist?
