Those who were fans of the Apple TV Remote app will have to find a suitable alternative fast. The Cupertino-based giant removed the app from its App Store without any prior announcement nor warning of any kind. But luckily enough, there are plenty of other ways to control your Apple TV.
The Apple TV Remote app allowed users to control their Apple TV by using a virtual remote control on their iPhone or iPad. But the Cupertino-based company’s television service still has a lot to offer, as an official description says:
Apple TV 4K lets you watch movies and shows in amazing 4K HDR — and now it completes the picture with immersive sound from Dolby Atmos.3 Stream your favorite channels live.
