Apple TV Remote for iOS has been updated with iPad support as expected. Apple TV users can use this app to control navigation and interact with Siri just like with the physical Siri Remote. Apple has also improved how Now Playing works with the latest update:
What’s New in Version 1.1
• Support for iPad • Enhanced Now Playing experience with lyrics and playlists for music and chapters, audio tracks, and captions selection for movies and TV shows • General performance and stability improvements
Apple TV Remote was previously only available for iPhone and iPod touch; the app scaled up for iPad users and the previous iTunes Remote app lacks Siri features. Apple TV also has a new software update today with tvOS 10.2 now out of beta and available for all users.
