Apple Releases Redesigned 'Apple TV Remote' App for iPhone

Michael Robert

Apple has released an all new Apple TV Remote app for the iPhone, which is used to control the fourth-generation Apple TV along with older Apple TV models. Announced at WWDC, the new Remote app has been available for developers since June and was released to the public this afternoon. 

The new Remote app, which connects to an Apple TV via Bluetooth, mimics the exact layout of the physical Siri Remote for a navigation experience that's streamlined across different input methods. Its design was inspired by the Siri Remote and is a significant improvement over the previous Apple TV remote app.

When content like movies or music plays, the Remote app features a full "Now Playing" view for control purposes, along with a dedicated Menu button and a Siri button. As with the physical Apple TV Remote, navigation through the iOS app is done using touch gestures. 

Entering text, like passwords and usernames, is much easier with the iOS Remote app because any text field automatically brings up a keyboard. Full Siri voice commands are supported, as is dictation. Because it includes the same gyroscope and accelerometer in the Siri Remote, an iPhone can be used as a dedicated game controller for playing games on the Apple TV. 

The Apple TV Remote app requires iOS 9.3.2 or later to install and it works with the current version of tvOS, 9.2.2. It can also be used to control Apple TV 2 and Apple TV 3 models. 

The Apple TV Remote app can be downloaded from the App Store for free.

iPhone 7 to be revealed on 7 September 2016

Michael Robert

Evan Blass, prominent leaker and VentureBeat reporter, has revealed what he believes to be the release window for the next iPhone. If his hunch is correct, then we should expect the iPhone 7 and its various iterations to be released on 16 September 2016.

Since Apple traditionally positions its major hardware releases for Fridays, and reveals the device about 10 days prior to the release, which would make Wednesday 7 September the reveal date for the iPhone 7.

South Africa should receive the iPhone 7 within a month of the iPhone 7 being revealed.

Our prediction at this stage as that iPhone 7 will be available in South Africa on Friday 14 October 2016.
