What was so wrong with the Apple TV 4K remote?


There’s a new Apple TV 4K (2021) on the market – and while not much is different compared to the 2017 model, there is one area that Apple did have to rework their original design intentions, and that’s with the Siri remote.

The Siri remote was a broadly criticized hardware accessory, and pretty much the only point of contention for Apple TV owners waiting for an updated streaming box with a competent remote to match – to the point that we advocated for using your iPhone as a remote instead (which is still a great option).
