What you need to know
- Apple just announced a new Apple TV remote, priced at $59.
- The new Siri Remote can be ordered April 30.
No need to buy a new Apple TV 4K just to ditch that remote.
Apple TV 4K just got a refresh but the big news is the arrival of a new Siri Remote and, yes, it’ll work just fine with your old Apple TV.
That means you won’t need to buy a whole new Apple TV 4K just to be able to get your hands on a remote that works!
The Siri Remote (2nd generation) brings precise control to your Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD.¹ Its all-new touch-enabled clickpad lets you click titles, swipe through playlists, and use a circular gesture on the outer ring to find just the scene you’re looking for. And with Siri, you can find what you want to watch using just your voice.
The newly refreshed Apple Siri Remote will sell for $59 when it goes on sale on April 30. You’ll need to wait until the second half of May before you can get your hands on it, unfortunately.
But hey, if you consider the price of the Lightning Cable you’ll get in the box, this remote suddenly doesn’t seem so expensive at $59.
