Apple TV Remote Alternatives

    Apple TV's remote software allows you to control Apple TV with your iPhone and iPad touch-based keyboard, a swipe of your finger, or just for use along with the physical (yet fragile) Siri Remote bundled with every Apple TV box. You can access this on the iPhone or iPad of your choice by swiping up into the Command Center and selecting the Apple TV Remote icon. The ability to speak commands into the remote allows for more people than ever to access content than would otherwise be possible.

    Though the ability to control your Apple TV is built in to every iPhone and iPad, the functionality is "what you see is what you get." For those of you that desire more customization and robust control over your Apple TV from your iPhone or iPad, the alternatives listed on this page should help.
