The Apple Remote puts you in complete control of your Apple TV (2nd and 3rd generation). The Apple TV Remote allows you to control your Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD with pinpoint accuracy. Its all-new touch-enabled click pad allows you to click titles, swipe through playlists, and utilize a circular gesture on the outer ring to pick exactly the scene you want. Use the Apple TV remote to rewind movies, stop TV shows, and even play games on your Apple TV. You can also use Siri to input words and conduct activities, like as playing a movie, depending on which version of the Apple TV remote you have.

How to Use the Apple TV  Remote

The revised Apple TV 4K remote functions similarly to the previous model, with the exception, that the touchpad has been removed and the ring button and touch-enabled click pad have been added. You may quickly go up, down, left, and right by touching the ring button in the cardinal directions. The touch-enabled click pad in the center is used for gesture-based navigation and controls, as well as clicking items.

Tips for Using the Apple TV Remote

The Apple TV  remote control’s fundamental functioning is simple to pick up after you know what the buttons do and have used it for a time. Even so, there’s a lot of capability that’s not immediately obvious.

  • You may use the Siri Remote on your Apple TV 4K to find your other Apple devices. “Where’s my iPhone,” “Ping my iPad,” or “Find Jeremy’s AirPods” are all possibilities.
  • By moving your finger in the appropriate way, you may go forward, back, up, and down through menus using the touch-enabled click pad.
  • If you don’t like the touch controls, go to Settings > Remotes & Devices and change Clickpad to Click Only or change Touch Surface Tracking to a more comfortable setting.
  • The TV button generally sends you to the Apple TV app’s Up Next page, but you can also click it twice to return to the home screen. That’s not to your liking? Set it to take you immediately to Settings > Remotes and Devices by going to Settings > Remotes and Devices. instead of the home screen
  • To reach the Control Center, press and hold the TV button. From there, you may switch users, access Apple Music, alter audio settings, access HomeKit scenes, and cameras, and search.
  • Fast forward or rewind with ease: Pause the show you’re viewing, then place your thumb on the click pad’s an outside border and drag it clockwise or counterclockwise to fast forward or rewind.
  • The power button may also be used to turn on your television. Turn on Control TVs and Receivers under Settings > Remotes and Devices > Home Theater Control.
