Apple has made it known via their official site, that will not be possible to use l’Remote application, available for iPhone and iPad, on new Apple TV fourth generation. Sin, it was a great way to have additional remote controls for free.
The Apple TV and fourth-generation arrived in Apple's retail Stores in the day yesterday and some users have already reported the complete absence of compatibility with l’s Remote app. Quest’last if installed on an iPhone or iPad, allowing you to manage the device from the living room Apple with a simple touch interface. With the new Apple TV fourth-generation, this will not be possible, in fact, l’unique remote control that is currently supported by the device is what you will find in the package of the’Apple TV. The news comes directly from Apple official site and confirmation l’incompatibility of the’Remote application, which very probably will never be implemented.
Truly a shame, because the iPhone has all the cards in rule to be all’the height of the new remote control dell’s Apple TV, when it has a touch screen with a full support to the necessary keys and a microphone for l’integration of Siri.
