Or­ga­nize Your Apps

If you're new to the Ap­ple TV, some­thing as sim­ple as re­ar­rang­ing your apps might seem daunt­ing. For­tu­nately, do­ing so is pretty easy since it mir­rors the same process you use on your iPhone or iPad. To re­ar­range apps, iden­tify the app you want to move or delete. On your Siri Re­mote, press and hold the touch­pad (if you have an older Ap­ple TV model, press and hold Se­lect) to make the app icon jig­gle. Next, use the touch­pad to drag it to a new lo­ca­tion and then press to make your change. To delete or hide an app that's jig­gling, press the Play/ Pause but­ton and then press the touch­pad to con­firm your ac­tion. Quickly Ad­just Video and App Set­tings

While watch­ing a video, you can view set­tings by swiping down from the top of the Siri Re­mote touch­pad on your fourth gen­er­a­tion Ap­ple TV. A win­dow will ap­pear with op­tions to view more in­for­ma­tion about the movie, turn on sub­ti­tles, and ad­just au­dio so that loud sounds are sup­pressed and dia­log is clearer. You can also se­lect a dif­fer­ent speaker. Once you're done, sim­ply swipe up to close the win­dow. This method of ac­cess­ing set­tings also works for se­lect apps, such as Periscope. To change set­tings on older Ap­ple TV mod­els, you must nav­i­gate to the Set­tings app from the main menu. Con­trol Mu­sic and Video Play­back

When watch­ing a video, swipe left or right on the touch­pad to jump back or for­ward (avail­able on fourth gen­er­a­tion Ap­ple TV). Press the left side of the touch­pad to go back 10 sec­onds; press the right side to go for­ward 10 sec­onds; press and hold the left side to rewind; and press and hold the right side to fast­for­ward. When lis­ten­ing to mu­sic, hold down the left side of the touch­pad to rewind and the right side to fast-for­ward. Press the left side of the touch­pad twice to go back a track, the right side once to skip for­ward a song, and press and hold the touch­pad and swipe up to see the rest of the al­bum. Set Up Your Ap­ple Watch as an Ap­ple TV Re­mote

To set up your watch to con­trol your Ap­ple TV, first make sure that your iPhone is con­nected to the same Wi-Fi net­work as your Ap­ple TV. Then open the Re­mote app on your watch and tap Add De­vice. On your Ap­ple TV, go to Set­tings > Gen­eral > Re­motes and se­lect your watch. En­ter the 4-digit pass­code that ap­pears on the watch face, and then wait to see the Ap­ple TV icon ap­pear on your watch screen. You can swipe on your watch to nav­i­gate through menu op­tions. Be­sides a Play/ Pause but­ton, you will con­trol the TV mainly with swipes and taps. To visit the pre­vi­ous menu, tap the screen. Tap and hold to re­turn to the top menu.
