Apple has released a dedicated TV remote feature for iPhones upon the launch of iOS 16. This built-in tool comes with more modernized updates, which are miles better than the legacy app.

The Cupertino giant has previously rolled out this feature separately on the Apple App Store. However, the company has ditched it and only assigned it to be a feature that’s accessible for all systems.

If you’re still new to the Apple TV Remote for the latest operating system, here’s what you need to know.

How to Use the Apple TV Remote Feature?

Here’s how to get started with the newest Apple TV Remote feature on iOS 16.

Physical remotes serve as an add-on to carry while you’re watching a movie. Some people still stick to the traditional models, but for those who want more convenience, the Apple TV Remote app is just one click away on your iPhone.

Apple Insider notes that this feature is similar to the Siri Remote. You will notice that this app has all the channel and volume buttons that you usually see from physical remotes.

To use the Apple TV Remote app, take note of the following tips below:

  • Start by accessing the Apple TV interface by clicking the empty gray space on the screen.
  • The feature sports a Play/Pause button for easy playback of the clip. The same functionality applies to Apple Music. You can pause and resume playing the song in the background.
  • By pressing and holding the button on the Settings, you can access the Control Center.
  • There’s also a Mute button that is associated with the volume buttons. If it has a gray color, it’s a clear indication that it’s unavailable on the feature.

Launching the Apple TV Remote Feature on iOS 16

Look at the remote icon on the Control Center, and from here, you can access the shortcuts for the Apple TV remote app.

Did you know that an AirPlay 2 connection will show up when you link the Apple TV through the app? If that’s so, then you will definitely witness the Now Playing content on the Lock Screen, as well as in the Control Center.

You will be asked to provide a password or a text when the app commences on the Apple TV. At the same time, all nearby smartphones will be alerted by this notification. From here, the Apple TV remote app will automatically launch in a matter of seconds.

Controlling the Volume on the Apple TV Remote

Through an AirPlay control, you can tweak the volume on the Apple TV Remote app. You can easily link your smart TV through this feature, but that’s not all about it. You can also gain access even to the smart speakers.

You can freely adjust the volume of audio through the speakers that are connected to ARC. Apparently, if it’s the other way around, like in the case of a direct connection from the television, then you cannot control the volume.

It should be noted that you can control it as-is if the Apple TV is integrated with HomePods or AirPlay 2.
