Remote iOS App Update Brings Official Support for Apple TV 4

Apple has released an update for the Remote iOS app to officially bring support the new fourth generation Apple TV. Yesterday, with the release of tvOS 9.1, the latter brought much anticipated support for the app.

However, the lack of update meant the app looked off on one particular screen like we noted, but that was fixed today.

What’s New in Version 4.2.3
Remote app adds support for the new Apple TV (4th generation) providing similar functionality as it did with Apple TV (3rd generation) for text input, navigation, and control.

By using the Remote app, it will allow users to type with their iOS keyboard, instead of pecking letters using the Apple TV’s remote, saving precious time.

Earlier this morning, Apple SVP Eddy Cue said Siri support was coming for the Remote app.
