I hate the Apple TV Remote Control!

Am I the only one who is too clumsy to operate it? It's too damn sensitive. Who designed that shit? I thought Apple is so great with design...

The brand new remote is terrific

by It makes me feel oldreply 106/09/2021

Agree OP. It’s way too precious for the sake of trying to be low profile and stylish.

by It makes me feel oldreply 206/09/2021

Do you complain about everything . It’s fine

by It makes me feel oldreply 306/09/2021

Can you buy a different remote?

by It makes me feel oldreply 406/09/2021

The worst is when you’re somehow activating it but you can’t even figure out where it is.

The new Apple remote is terrific. Can we assume you know how to adjust the settings OP? Or did you come directly to DL to vent? A simple Google search found the following:

Adjust the Siri Remote's touch sensitivity: If you find the remote's touch controls too sensitive, or not sensitive enough for your liking, you can jump in the Settings app and fine-tune it. Go to Settings > Remotes and Devices > Touch Surface Tracking and try out the different options.

Agree - it is AWFUL... Surprised Apple would put that thing out in the market.

by It makes me feel oldreply 706/09/2021

It's really hard to operate in the dark. Very poorly designed and difficult to manage at different angles. Most people I talked to hate it.

It's probably in your ass crack, R5. It is that small.

by It makes me feel oldreply 906/09/2021

The old remote isn't the greatest, but I've heard good things about the new one.

by It makes me feel oldreply 1006/09/2021

When did the new one come out? I bought mine half a year ago and I dislike it.

by It makes me feel oldreply 1106/09/2021

richontech.tv loves the new Apple TV remote. I still have the old one, but it doesn’t keep its charge like it used to.

by It makes me feel oldreply 1206/09/2021

Can you use the new remote for an older Apple TV unit?

by It makes me feel oldreply 1306/10/2021

The new remote began shipping in the last 2 weeks, so if you bought one before, you have the older model without the iPod-like track wheel at the top. It will work with the previous versions of Apple 4k and HD TV (meaning the small black box interface used to stream content to your television, not the subscription-based TV service).

I just realized that I can use my iPhone as a remote control.

by It makes me feel oldreply 1506/10/2021

I insert it in my hiney. It vibrates GLORIOUSLY.
