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.

  • 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.
