By now you’ve probably heard about Apple TV, the latest Apple product to make its debut on the UK market.
You’ve also probably heard a lot about the Apple TV’s “new” voice recognition feature, which allows the new device to play a variety of video content on your Apple TV without a separate remote control.
But what exactly is the Apple-branded remote control, and how does it work?
Read on for our guide to the Apple remote control for iPhone and iPad.
How does it make the difference?
What is the new Siri?
Siri is a Siri voice assistant that has been integrated into every Apple TV since iOS 8.
Its voice recogniser can read the text and recognise phrases you use, and it can also perform voice searches in your library of videos.
In addition, Siri can also tell you the time and set reminders.
You can use Siri to access your favourite channels or watch any video on the service, and you can even ask Siri to send you a text message.
It can also make Siri-branded calls or play games.
In the past, Siri was able to play back videos on Apple TV via Apple’s own streaming service.
But with iOS 9, Apple decided to add a feature that lets you control Siri remotely using an Apple TV Remote app.
In short, you can now use the Apple Remote app to control Siri via your iPhone.
Why do I need it?
Sirius is the most important thing about Siri.
Apple’s latest device has been the first to feature a voice recognition voice recognition system that’s capable of reading texts, recognising phrases and playing games.
The voice recognition is based on artificial intelligence (AI) and is not something Apple invented.
Apple and the Google Pixel, for example, both rely on Google’s AI.
This is a huge step forward in Siri’s capability and Apple has been working on Siri since the launch of iOS 8, so we’re excited to see how it plays out on Apple’s new device.
But before we get too excited, there are some things you need do before you can use the Siri Remote.
Siri will not recognise the presence of your face in front of the deviceYou can use your iPhone to recognise your face, but you’ll need to have the camera on your phone on the device and set the face detection to on.
You’ll also need to use the same app that is used to control Apple TV and make sure it is available in the background.
This means that you can’t use Siri on an iPad or iPhone to turn on the face recognition feature.
You will also need a face-detection camera to use Siri, and this is where the Siri remote control app comes in.
Why is Siri so useful?
Sri’s voice recognition capabilities are based on what’s known as “deep learning”.
This means the system is able to learn from what you say, and from what the device is doing.
It’s the same kind of AI that powers Google’s voice assistants, such as Alexa and Google Assistant.
Deep learning is also used in Apple’s Siri.
If you use a smartphone, you’ll find that Siri’s voice recognisers can be set to recognise phrases like “Hey Siri, tell me more about this”, “Tell me more” or “I need a new Apple Watch”.
But these are all very basic tasks, and the Siri voice recognising systems are far more advanced than what Google is using.
Apple has also used deep learning to improve the Siri-related features on its own devices.
The company has improved the Siri Voice Control feature that allows you to set a custom wake-up alarm, so you can ask Siri questions like “How often do you wake up?” and “How do I turn off the music?” or “What does this mean?”
This feature has been tested and works well on iOS devices.
But Siri’s speech recognition capabilities aren’t limited to recognising sentences.
The app can also recognise phrases, like “I love you” or even “I want to see you”, which is really handy when trying to find your way around an unfamiliar area.
For example, Siri could recognize “I’m a big fan of this restaurant” or just “I’d like to try this new restaurant”.
What about the weather?
Safari has been able to improve Siri’s ability to recognise weather conditions in the past by adding more accurate forecasts.
But the new voice recognition systems introduced with iOS 10 don’t use weather conditions as a basis for their recognition.
The system only needs to remember that the weather conditions you are in are currently changing.
So when you are speaking to Siri about the upcoming rain or snow, Siri will not think you are referring to a forecast from the weather service.
What about games?
The latest Apple TV has been a big hit with gamers.
However, the new system will not work in games like League of Legends or Hearthstone.
This is a major disappointment for Apple, which
