    Apple Remote with iPod and iPhone

    If you connect your iPod to a home stereo, powered speakers, or TV set, the Apple Remote lets you experience your songs, slideshows, and more from across the room. Plug your iPod into the Apple Universal Dock and choose a playlist, slideshow, or video. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy. Ready to move on to the next song? No need to get up. Just press the Next button on the Apple Remote. Getting a call on your iPhone? Press Pause, then pick up where you left off.

    Apple Remote with Mac

    The Apple Remote gives you total command of your music, photos, videos, and DVDs from anywhere in the room. Turn up the volume. Shuffle. Skip to the next chapter on your DVD. Play a slideshow, a home movie you made in iMovie, even a movie trailer.

    Keep in mind, Apple TV can only connect to one remote at a time. If you wish to play multiple player games, you’ll need an iOS device or controller.

      The most annoying remote on the planet - I would give it no stars.

Fix up your time-wasting remote.

      Sometimes Just Being Pretty Isn't Good Enough

      Yes, it's sleek and lovely. No, it isn't a very good remote. Too many touches to get where you want to go. Entering usernames and passwords to connect with s Yes, it's sleek and lovely. No, it isn't a very good remote. Too many touches to get where you want to go. Entering usernames and passwords to connect with services is a nightmare. (God forbid I actually ever change a password!) We call one of ours the "Republican" remote because it won't go left. Love the Apple TV and own 4 of them in our house. Remote needs Redo.

      A way to improve the remote from being lost.

      MY remote has been lost several times also. BUT, if you attach a ribbon to it by tape it is easier to find.

Unfortunately I have to replace mine now as it is not dog chewing proof!

      My son dropped it down the vent

      Find my Apple remote

Sure you can use the remote app on your phone to operate Apple TV when you misplace your remote but it does not always work. Sometimes I have to pair it again, it randomly doesn't show up as a device. It is annoying. Apple can make a better remote, it is impossible not to lose this remote, not only because of the small size and color, but it is also slippery. It is also annoyingly inefficient to use when you need to type in a search. Considering how often we need to replace it, $19 seems overpriced, it is 1/5th the price of our Apple TV, it doesn't even make sense. I wish there were more options for the remote because I love my Apple TV.
