It’s no secret that the Siri Remote on Apple TV can often be frustrating.
Sure, if you’ve been using one for several months, it’s possible to master it. However, if you are choosing a Siri Remote for the first time, it can be surprisingly unnerving.
Following the remote control developed by Salt from last year sold by a Swiss Internet and television provider, Universal Electronics launches its own Apple TV remote control with physical navigation buttons.
The remote connects to Apple TV via Bluetooth Low Energy or Infrared, includes a microphone for Siri commands, and works as a universal remote for televisions and audio devices. In addition, the remote control has backlit keys that are turned on by an ambient light sensor.
While Universal Electronic’s remote will launch in early 2021, it is unfortunately not available directly from the company. Instead, it will be sold directly through cable companies.
It is highly unlikely that Canadian carriers will ever sell this third-party remote as they do not officially offer Apple TV.
