From experience, the iOS and iPadOS Remote work best when all devices are on the same Wi-Fi network. For example, we tried controlling an Apple TV on a Wi-Fi connection from an iPhone using a cellular connection. The iPhone remote worked on the first connection but stopped detecting the Apple TV after some minutes.

Apple Tv Remote App For Mac

All you need to do to get going is download the Ezzi Keyboard app on your Mac and then turn on your Bluetooth settings. Once you have done this, you can pair your Mac with your Apple TV and begin using the Ezzi Keyboard as a remote.

Just like the Ezzi Keyboard app, you can navigate between TV menus and select different shows by using the app on your Mac. The app currently has a rating of 4.1 / 5 on the app store making it the most reliable third-party Bluetooth remote app.

I often can go into remote app and devices settings on the AppleTV, see "Office" in Xcode's Devices and Simulators, click Pair, and entering the code correctly pairs so I can run. (I didn't unpair on either end.)

I've tried removing the paired computer from the Apple TV's list of remotes and devices, re-pairing from Xcode, rebooted both machines... nothing is working. No matter what, Xcode just seems stuck in a loop where the pair never completes.

So i'm noticing something.. If I uninstall Xcode, and just keep apple configurator 2 installed I am able to pair all my devices and they consistently work. That doesn't help much for development but it is making me think its something to do with Xcode.

The Apple TV is an underrated product that Apple is trying to show some more love by creating more integration with its other products. With streaming becoming so popular and mainstream media dying rapidly, we might actually finally begin to see widespread adoption of the Apple TV. If you already have an Apple TV and are new to the product, you might feel a little confused about how to work things around smoothly. It can take a bit of time to get used to all the features out there, but read on to find out how to use the Apple TV remote app and other tips and tricks to help you out.

The Apple TV remote app is a sleek and minimal app that allows you to control your TV via AirPlay 2. All Apple TVs come with the Siri remote, and the remote app does a good job of trying to replicate the physical hardware with the touchpad taking up most of the screen so you can navigate easily. The remote app features include:

The primary way to open the remote app is through the Control Center. The Control Center is present in multiple places on your iOS device. When you unlock your phone and swipe on the right half, it slides open a screen with various nodules and buttons. Here, you can find the remote app. Alternatively, if you have something playing on your Apple TV, your iPhone automatically picks that up through the AirPlay 2 connection. Just like your AirPods, you can open the remote app by clicking on the icon next to the media player on your lock screen. Since Apple got rid of the app, this is the only way you can open the Apple TV remote on your iOS 16 device.

Did we mention the remote control companion app for Android and iPhone? No? Well, it's pretty cool. It lets you control all Airflow features from the comfort of your couch. And it's completely free!

This article explains how you can download, install and setup the Apple TV app on your iOS device (iPhone or iPad); so that you can control your Apple TV. This will enable you to use your iPone or iPad as a remote. This will have many advantages, like:

my iphone remote stopped recognizing my apple tv box so im not able to use the service and the apple tv is on, it owrks but the remote gives me a message about it not being connected to the same network and it is

I really dont know if you guys know what you are telling us. How can we go to setting of apple tv if we dont have the remote control. Thats the reason why we want to use ios device to control apple tv.

There's a bit of a catch-22 for this one. To set up an old TV or DVD remote to act as an Apple TV remote, you will need a working Apple TV remote to begin the procedure. I suggest you use the Remote app to set things up.

Grab an old remote and use the Remote app to head to Settings > General > Remotes > Learn Remote on your Apple TV. Hit the Start button and press and hold buttons to assign each one a function. It will walk you through the basic buttons first: Up, Down, Left, Right, Select and Menu.

After setting up the basic buttons, you can then program additional buttons for play, pause, fast forward, rewind and 30-second skips backwards and forward. This gives you more functionality than the minimalistic Apple TV remote offers itself. Plus, a clunky old DVD remote is harder to lose.

If neither of the above options are feasible or attractive, then you'll need to buy a new Apple TV remote. At the time of writing, Apple will sell you the older, Siri-less silver remote for $19 (15, AU$25). Or you can get the newer Siri Remote for $79 (79, AU$129). You'll get free two-day shipping if you buy it in the US.

Editor's note: This story was originally published on September 4, 2014 and has since been updated to include new information. Also, roughly a year after this story was originally published, I found my Apple TV remote. It turned up in a Monopoly box, a game it turns out my family doesn't play all that frequently.

In this article, we will show you various ways of setting up remote control for your iPhone or iPad. We look at accessing mobile devices from different computing platforms using native OS functionality or third-party solutions. These methods let you get to the important data on your iPhone from any location.

We also discuss using your iPhone as a remote control for Apple TV. This can come in handy if you have misplaced your Apple TV remote control or just like the convenience of controlling everything from one device.

Apple introduced the Switch Control feature with the release of iOS 7 in 2013. The functionality added by Switch Control was originally intended to help users with disabilities control their devices. Anyone can use Switch Control to gain access to another iPhone or iPad as long as both devices are logged into the same Apple account and on the same network. You can use the following technique to remote control an iPhone from an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or any device running iOS.

Controlling Apple devices from other Apple devices is a pretty straightforward process. You might want to remote control an iPhone from a PC running Windows or a Linux machine. This can be done though it is more complicated and requires the use of third-party apps for remote iPhone support or browser extensions.

Multiple solutions and remote control iPhone apps are on the market that offer various features and functionality. They all perform the same core functions, but their interfaces, prices, and feature sets differ.

A remote desktop extension can be used to control an iPhone from a PC. Google Chrome Remote Desktop extension has recently added iOS support to the product that previously was only available for Android devices.

Before you start, you should update Chrome to the latest version and install the Chrome Remote Desktop app for iOS on your iPhone or iPad. Once you have completed these prerequisites you can use the following steps to use this free iPhone remote control app.

ISL Light is a secure remote access solution that lets you control an iOS device from a PC. The tool has an extensive set of features that includes the ability to perform activities on unattended devices. The following steps are required to set up and configure ISL Light so it can remotely control an iOS device.

We have shown you several ways to implement iPhone remote control from various platforms. These methods can be instrumental in providing remote technical support, working from home, or simply remotely accessing information from iOS devices.

The native compatibility built into Apple devices makes it extremely easy to remotely control an iOS device from another iOS device or a computer running macOS. If this method is available to you, we suggest you use it.

Connecting from a Windows, Linux, or Android platform requires third-party tools or browser extensions. Depending on the level of remote access and control you need, the free solution using the Chrome browser may be adequate. If more functionality is required, you should consider a tool like Zoho Assist.

I see this app as a smart tool that can let you take the desired control over your important files remotely. With the support for multiple cloud services including Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, and Box, you will be able to manage all of your files with ease.

When exposing a Camera, Activity based remote (a remote that supports activities), Lock, or Television media player (a media_player with device class tv) to HomeKit, mode must be set to accessory, and the relevant include filter should be setup to only include a single entity.

The volume and play/pause controls will show up on the Remote app or Control Center. If your TV supports volume control through Home Assistant, you will be able to control the volume using the side volume buttons on the device while having the remote selected on screen.

A couple of suggestions and one question:
S1 - Could you please publish a Table of Contents for this streaming book? That would inform readers if a topic of interest to them will be covered. If it seems like something will not be covered, readers comments might suggest an scope expansion of your book.
S2- Chapter 2 does not mention configuration of 'Computer", which toggles home-sharing on/off. This is required to stream content from your computer. Setting up a homeshare, which involves having an apple id, valid credit card registered with apple, etc., ail have to be explained. Hmmm, I wonder which chapter that will be ????
Q - Of particular interest to me knowing how to setup 2 apple tv's and 2 iMacs on the same house. Background: TV, AppleTv and iMac in recroom, similar setup in wife's den. All media content is on a NAS. We want to stream content from the iTunes on each iMac to the corresponding appleTV, rather than a single shared iTunes library, which would require us to go into whichever room the 'main' library is located to wake-up the mac from sleep.I need a spousal friendly solution for this. I was unsuccessful during my first attempt at this, hence my question. I will also keep trying and will let you know how I make out.
