The Siri Remote is the key to unlocking the full potential of Apple TV, yet its slender form factor makes it prone to being lost in the shuffle of daily life. Here’s how to find it using iOS 17.
The Siri Remote (2nd generation) is an important part of the Apple TV experience, offering intuitive navigation and control over users’ entertainment. Designed to ensure that the viewing experience is as seamless as possible, the Siri Remote has many features.
It boasts a touch-enabled click pad that allows users to quickly swipe through content, select options, and precisely navigate the Apple TV interface. Its tactile buttons provide immediate access to the Home screen, play/pause, volume control, and Siri.
Voice commands through Siri make searching for content, controlling playback, and even managing smart home devices a breeze. The remote’s microphone is finely tuned to pick up voice commands accurately for Siri.
Alas, it still falls prone to the same problem as other remote controls, in that it can easily go missing. Just like controllers for the TV or game consoles, the Siri Remote can also be misplaced, causing minutes of frustration.
