Apple Tv Remote For Mac
The remote uses IR not Bluetooth.
Pair iTunes Remote with your media library. On your iOS or iPadOS device, open the Remote app. Do one of the following: If it’s your first time using iTunes Remote: Tap Connect Manually. If it’s not your first time using iTunes Remote: Tap Settings, then tap “Add a media library.”.
- Apple TV — with the Apple TV app, Apple TV+, and Apple TV 4K — puts you in control of what you watch, where you watch, and how you watch.
- Use an Apple Remote with Mac If you have an Apple Remote, you can use it to control certain features on some Mac computers, iOS devices, or Apple TV. For example, from a distance you can play music from Apple Music on your Mac or navigate through Keynote presentations, play music from your iPod (using the Apple Universal Dock), or remotely control your Apple TV.
Older Macs used to come with an Apple remote for various uses but these days it's an optional extra.
Pairing is not intuitive - the remote just sends a signal with some kind of code to identify that particular remote.
When you pair a remote it makes AppleTV or Mac only respond to commands from the remote with a certain code.
By default AppleTVs and Macs are not apired so work with any remote - even if that remote is paired with another device as the rewmote has no role in pairing apart from providing a code to identify it specifically.
Use the Security pane in System Preferences to turn the infrared ('IR') reception on your Mac off (or back on). To do this:
- Choose System Preferences from the Apple () menu in the upper-left menu bar.
- Choose Security from the View menu.
- Click the lock and enter your Administrator password if necessary.
- In OS X Lion v10.7 or later, click the 'Advanced' button in the lower-right corner.
- Enable the 'Disable remote control infrared receiver' checkbox.
- In OS X Lion v10.7 or later, click the OK button.
