I lost my apple tv remote. can I use the remote application on my ios device to control apple tv?

I can't get the Apple remote app on my iphone to see my apple tv. I lost the remote to the apple tv two years ago because I could not figure out how to use it and I lost track of the remote. Now I want to try again. Do I have to buy another remote or can I control apple tv with the remote app on my iphone. It's an apple tv 3rd generation.

  • Yes. There is an app called Remote, and its made by Apple. You will need to set up Home Sharing, but that isn't hard to do at all. Hope this helps! (I know this is a late comment, but better late than never, and all the other comments I saw I was face palming on. So, I had to do this)

  • You still need to set up on screen of Apple TV with remote control. Once done you can use app in store named remote via iPhone or any iOS device.

  • Yes. Turn on home sharing on both devices and log in with the same apple ID. It should work from there.
