NEWS – For those that have used one, the AppleTV remote has never been very popular. The main reasons being that it is small and hard to grip. Accessory maker Elago solved those issues with their popular silicone AppleTV remote control cases. Apple recently upgraded the AppleTV remote, making it more user-friendly. However, it is still smallish, slick, and easily lost.
Elago redesigned their case for the newest AppleTV remote and added a little something that takes advantage of another recent Apple product, AirTags. The Elago R5 Apple TV Siri Remote has the same dependable design and materials but added a new feature. The R5 has an added slot to make it compatible with Apple AirTags. Now, if you lose it, you can track it. AirTags are not included.
Aside from the added space for the AirTag, the R5 uses thick premium silicone to protect the remote from drops, dirt, and dust. The design also gives you complete access to all functions of the remote. The Elago R5 Apple TV Siri Remote sells for $14.99 and is available in four colors, including Nightglow Blue, which glows in the dark. The cases are available for purchase on Amazon.
