How to Use the Ap­ple TV Re­mote app

Why use the app

The free Ap­ple TV Re­mote app runs on iOS 9 and iOS 10 de­vices, and can con­trol sec­ond-gen and third-gen Ap­ple TVs. Even if you have an iOS 11 de­vice, it of­fers fea­tures and short­cuts that the sys­tem’s built-in re­mote lacks.

Au­dio and sub­ti­tles

The app pro­vides faster ac­cess than swip­ing down dur­ing play­back to nav­i­gate au­dio/sub­ti­tle op­tions on your TV: tap De­tails, then the bot­tom cen­ter icon to choose on iOS. There’s a slider for skim­ming to a spe­cific time, too.

Gamepad mode

When in a game that sup­ports game con­trollers, a gamepad icon is shown at the top of the screen. Tap it to use sim­pli­fied con­trols in land­scape ori­en­ta­tion — they can’t be cus­tom­ized, so it’s a stretch on Plus-size iPhones.
