Any compatible controller turns the new Apple TV into a real game console! In addition, you can easily control the console from it. How it works?
How to Connect a New XBOX One Controller via Bluetooth to Apple TV?
- To connect it to the set-top box, open Settings on it, select the Remote control and devices item, then Bluetooth;
- Then turn on the power on the controller and put it into pairing mode (in the case of the XBOX One Controller, you must press and hold the button with the Bluetooth icon);
- The gamepad is determined by Apple TV, after which it remains only to choose from the console.
XBOX Gaming Controller Using for Apple TV
Now the gamepad can navigate through the console. Everything is like on the XBOX – button A is responsible for choosing, B is for returning to the previous menu, the left joystick is for moving right-left-up-down.
The controller can even wake the Apple TV from sleep mode. To do this, connect it to a power source. Further, the accessory itself will “wake up” the Apple TV box via a Bluetooth connection. So Siri Remote does not have to look.
