If there was one undesirable aspect about the new Apple TV that users exposed at its launch was its restriction on carrying out searches & typing text with the set-top box’s built-in remote.

As luck would have it, Apple soon released the tv OS 9.1 software update late last year refining voice search experiences with Siri application, and extra software update is on its way that will permit users to take benefit of notation for text item via the remote’s mic. But the next great advancement that Apple has intended is using an iPhone to swap the remote completely.

Back in last December, Apple Vice President Eddy Cue mentioned that Remote app for iOS was being revamped to be compatible with the cutting-edge Apple TV, providing users all the utilities of the touch pad remote accurately on their iPhone, with playback controls and voice-enabled search features.

An innovative, and very cool, feature they shared is coming with the new iOS Remote app, users can play a two-player game on the Apple TV, with 1 person using the standard remote, and the other one, with an iPhone. A second remote has not required to buy for having some multiplayer gaming experience.
