Apple redesigns Apple TV Siri Remote with one-piece aluminum design, finally ditching the glass body

During its Spring Loaded event, Apple introduced a new Apple TV Siri remote with the new Apple TV 4K. The new redesigned smart remote has an all-aluminum body, click buttons, and is thicker than the previous model. The remote’s intuitive navigation controls are designed to make it easier to watch movies and shows on Apple TV.

The glass body of the older Siri Remote model had durability issues. The remote easily broke, was susceptible to scratches and other damages. Since the replacement was costly, uses usually looked for third-party options with plastic or metal body. From what it appears, Apple listened to consumer feedback and is finally giving them a more durable product.

Apple launches a more durable Apple TV Siri Remote

Resembling the first-generation Apple TV Siri Remote, the new model has an aluminum body, a power button, Siri activation button on the side, circular navigation controls, and more.

The all-new Siri Remote features an innovative clickpad control that offers five-way navigation for better accuracy, and is also touch-enabled for the fast directional swipes Apple TV users love. The outer ring of the clickpad supports an intuitive circular gesture that turns it into a jog control — perfect for finding a scene in a movie or show. And with its one-piece aluminum design, the new Siri Remote fits more comfortably in a user’s hand.

In addition, the company has also expanded Siri support on Apple TV in new regions including Austria, Ireland, and New Zealand.
The new Siri Remote also has a power button that controls a TV’s power, and another for mute, making it the only remote needed while enjoying TV. Using Siri, customers can easily search for specific shows or movies, control smart home accessories, check sports scores or the weather, and much more. Siri now works on Apple TV in Austria, Ireland, and New Zealand, joining the 13 countries and regions that already support Siri.
The new Apple TV smart remote costs $59 and is compatible with the new Apple TV 4K and previous Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD models.
