The Apple TV Remote app has been available to developers on iOS10 beta since WWDC and on 1st August was released to the public in the App Store. It currently ranks at number 11 in the entertainment category for free apps.
The new app effectively recreates all the functions of the Siri Remote and features a game mode. It’s also free, as opposed to the £65 it costs for a Siri Remote, which is likely to encourage potential users to download it. The app pairs to an Apple TV just like other remotes, requiring the entry of a code displayed on the screen connected to an Apple TV.
