Then, he went on to a career in breaking things professionally at my electric sparks which is where he eventually took over the kit as a hardware editor. Today, as the senior editor of hardware for my electric sparks, he spends time reporting about the most recent developments in the hardware industry and technology. If he's not reporting on hardware or electronics, you'll see him trying to be as remote from the world of technology as possible through camping in the wild.

It happens more frequently than we think. Apple TVs are more difficult because all their features are tied to them. This problem can be solved. This article will show you how to connect your Apple TV to Wi-Fi without the remote.

Remote Control of iOS Control Center

To operate your Apple TV, you will need a remote controller. This is a fact that you can’t ignore. There are no physical buttons on the TV. You can only turn the TV on and off by unplugging it and then plugging it in again. However, that is not very useful. Apple offers a solution. However, you will need an Ethernet cable and another iOS device.

  2. Click on Control Center.
  3. Tap on Customize Controls and then tap + on Apple TV Remote.

Once you have the Remote Control installed on your device, you will need to connect your Apple TV to your iOS device’s network. Connect your Apple TV’s Ethernet cable to its back, and then connect it to your Wi-Fi router. After the device is connected to the network, follow these steps:

  1. Open the control center of your device. You can access the control center if you have an iPhone X, iPad X, or an iPad with the latest OS version. To do this, swipe down from the upper left of your screen. If you don’t have an iPhone X or later, swipe down from the upper right of your screen.

You can also use an Apple TV remote to control your Apple TV. Hold the Menu button and left arrow for six seconds while unlinking your remote from the old Apple TV. If the remote icon that appeared on the TV screen paired with your remote is gone, it means it has not been linked.

For pairing the remote with your Apple TV, press the Menu and right buttons for six seconds. The remote icon will appear on your TV to indicate that it has been paired. This remote can be used to set up Wi-Fi using the instructions below.

An Alternative That Works
