25 Exciting Things You Can Do With the Apple TV



Use Your iPhone as the Remote to Type Passwords

Use Your iPhone as the Remote to Type Passwords

Download the free Apple TV remote app for your iPhone and you can then use it to control your Apple TV. This is handy if you leave the slippery remote on the other end of the room, and it's epic for typing in passwords. 

With the Apple TV app, you can use the iPhone keyboard to type in a password. This helps with complex passwords, and you can also use it to paste in a password from a password manager. 

If you lose the Apple TV remote, it's also a helpful way to control your Apple TV.

    I buy iTunes content on my iMac and then stream to the AppleTV via our ethernet router. I’ve never noticed any lag or need for buffering. However, if I’m just renting a movie, I’ll do it on the AppleTV using the same router. I do see buffering at that point, but I doubt that a bigger HDD is going to make any difference.

      I mean, yes. with android tv you can do the same but will not have that speed level on transitions. anyway as a apple fanboy let me tell you the obvious. Apple TV is pure crap.
