iOS 15 features revamped Apple TV Remote within Control Center

Apple’s latest software update iOS 15 features a redesigned Apple TV remote app within the Control Center. The app’s new interface mirrors the latest Siri Remote which ships with the new Apple TV 4K with a new back button, mute, and more. The redesigned Apple TV Remote offers greater functionality over the old design.

Redesigned Apple TV Remote available in Control Center with iOS 15

Control Center’s built-in Apple TV Remote allows users to control Apple TV straight from their iPhone or iPad. The feature can come in particularly handy if you misplace the Siri Remote. With the launch of iOS 14 and iPadOS, the Apple TV Remove was updated to reflect the previous Siri Remote’s functionality. But the latest Siri Remote offers even more so the Apple TV Remote inside Control Center is being updated once again to reflect those upgrades.

In addition to playback controls, the redesigned Apple TV Remote features mute and power switches, a back button, and channel up and down buttons. The app also allows users to quickly access by holding the device’s power button – a neat little touch. The update is a small part of iOS 15 but it will make the Apple TV Remote much more functional for Apple TV owners.

Announced at WWDC 21, iOS 15 offers major new features for FaceTime, Messages, Maps, Notifications, Weather, Wallet, Safari, Health, and more. A new feature called Focus is also part of this release which aims to make the smartphone user experience more intuitive. Apple has also introduced new improvements such as on-device intelligence, advanced Spotlight search, and improvements to Siri in this update.
