Caring for Your Siri Remote (ATV4 Remote Guide)

“They don’t build them like they used to”

With newer technology comes all sorts of newer lighter materials. Take the new Apple TV Siri Remote. You can talk to it, you can use the touch interface at the top of the remote but unfortunately it’s fragile. The main surface is made of glass, combined with the slick metal back cover and the high price for replacement, creates the perfect situation for some very expensive mistakes. Compared to the virtually indestructible 2nd and 3rd generation metal remotes, the 4th generation Apple TV remotes simply aren’t as durable. Even the plastic 1st generation remotes have a bit of a leg up. Based on feedback you could carpet your house or wrap your hand in bubble wrap while using the remote but an easier more logical solution a resistant silicone case. Reminds us of the issues that Nintendo had with the Wii and all those broken TV screens…Good times…
