    Works as exoected!

    • Written by Nicole E from Toronto

    I have no issues with this. I still have the first gen remote for the MacBooks and it’s much smaller than this one. I haven’t lost it and that remote is over 10 years old and works on my new laptop as well to control iTunes if I choose. Blaming the company won’t help anyone that does not know how to place things back where they found them. I find it to be sleek, controls what I need it to including my Mac as well. Don’t be salty if you know you can’t take care of your things. Also, many need to try speaking to companies a little better and they may help. Never had an issue with apple or their customer service. Common sense remote and gets to the point. If you want a tv remote, get a smart tv.

    A must have for all Mac computers

    • Written by Guillaume B from Nice

    Exceptional design, ergonomics much better than a phone app (no need to look at the remote to feel the keys). For Macs without integrated infrared receiver, a SmartGUS is required.

    Love the remote

    • Written by Paula f S from Cambridge

    I do think it would be nice if Apple included an extra remote for backup; like others, i have had to go hunting for mine a number of times (and haven't been able to get the app to work).

    I like the sleek design and simplicity.
    What i don't llke: the left arrow is really a rewind; the 'MENU' is more of a back button.
    I would like a real MENU, for, say, turning subtitles off and on. i can never remember how to do it.
    Other than that, perfection.

    Really Handy

    • Written by Alexander P from Norwich

    The Apple Remote is really handy for all sorts of things. I use it with my Mac mini for presentations and iTunes which is really useful if you're feeling a bit lazy and you don't want to go up to the computer to change the song! It's also great for wirelessly controlling other media aspects with your Mac along with operating Keynote presentations and Microsoft PowerPoint presentations. Really great little device - well worth the money.

    Best remote in terms of ergonomics and design

    • Written by Guillaume B from Mougins

    First class, start of the art design, overclassing the mobile applications. No need to look at the remote to perform action (especially useful for presentation and media player interaction). Works on all Mac with buil-in infrared receiver. For the current Macs, a USB receiver is needed such as SmartGus.

    Works great

    • Written by Trey Y from Lubbock

    I've been using this remote for years with my Apple TV and have never had a single problem of any sort. Some complain about it being small, but it doesn't need to be larger. If it gets lost in a couch, that's what end tables are for. Again, no issues of any kind. It is simple and it works.

    I love this!

    • Written by Natasha H from Austin

    I'm not understanding why people are being so harsh about this product? It is very easy to use, simple to set up, inexpensive and it is comfortable in your hand and has never given me any issues. It really is great! It also keeps you from having to plug your internet cable directly to the Apple TV just to set up the wifi for the remote app. I prefer the remote any day! My only issue is that I personally am always misplacing it.

    Simplistic design

    • Written by Philip S from Surrey

    I was rather amused by the negative reviews for this wonderful remote. I suspect there are those amongst us that prefer something substantial to hold in their hands with lots of buttons with tiny labels. I myself like the remote to be functional with the minimum of buttons that I can easily navigate with my thumb.
    However, I have to add to the number of users that have their 'up' function failed (after 5 yrs of constant usage)and have to purchase a replacement remote. Meantime, the iPhone 'Remote' app steps in just fine :- )

    Im using this remote with my 2014 mac mini and is a great option when wanting to control my video and music without using the keyboard. Took only 2 seconds to set up, all you need is an IR reader, which unfortunately is becoming rare on macs.
