Apple Products Are Made For One Another
Unlike its rival the Roku, Apple Tv is just one part of many devices that can be connected to one another while being their own entertainment system.
What do we mean by “being their own entertainment system”?
- If you have an iPad, it is meant to be used for reading, playing app games, or watching videos on a small display screen.
- If you have an iPhone, you will mainly use it to call, text, and play games while watching videos on an even smaller screen.
- If you have an iPod, you mainly use it for music, and possibly apps.
All of these devices have their own unique entertainment features that are distinguished from one another. What makes them unique with Apple TV is that you can connect them and turn these devices into a remote controller to navigate Apple TV.
What makes the remote so unique is that you can customize functions and certain command instead of having a remote that you have to learn how to use.
Siri Will Do Your Bidding
Whether you are watching a movie or trying to find what your way through Apple TV, you will always have your own personal assistant who will listen to your command and do as you say.
Siri works well with all apple devices, but with the Apple TV, specifically, she has special commands that you can say that will help you easily navigate, rewind, and get the best out of your entertainment.
An example is if you were to say “rewind back to (X time) of the film”, Siri will go to that specific time in the show or movie that you are watching.
Instead of having to use a remote and wait a few minutes to find things on your Apple TV, use Siri and get everything you need instantly!
Play Games With Apple TV
Apple TV isn’t just for movies and t.v shows, you can actually play games on it with either your iPad as the remote, or a custom controller that has Bluetooth enable for the best gaming experience.
A lot of people don’t really notice that you can connect console controller to the Apple TV. This will make playing first person shooters or adventure games much easier and more fun!
Quickly Switch Between Apps With The Home Button
Don’t get stuck in all the apps and trying really hard to find your way to the home menu.
With Apple TV, you can exit all apps and get to the main menu in an instant. This is great compared to many other rival devices as they take a while before you can even load up the homepage.
Why deal with all the hassle when you can make everything easier with the Apple TV.

This is also great for those who wants to customize the way their Apple TV home menu look. It will be your very own customizable device showcasing your photos!
