Checking the Battery Life of Your Apple TV Remote: A Simple Process

How to Check Apple Remote Battery

Hello, this is Tracy from Today, I will share with you how to check the battery level of your Apple TV remote. No fluff, just straightforward steps. Let's dive in.

Checking Battery Level with the Apple TV On-Screen Menu

Firstly, it is important to know that Apple TV doesn't have a built-in feature to directly check the remote battery level. However, you can check it indirectly via the on-screen menu.

  1. Turn on the Apple TV and position your TV screen so that you can see it.
  2. On the main screen, go to “Settings”.
  3. Then, navigate to “Remote and Devices”.
  4. In this menu, there should be a “Remote” option. Select it.
  5. Once selected, if “Battery: LOW” appears, it means that your remote is low on power. If nothing appears at all, you have sufficient battery power.

Checking Battery Level via Apple's Remote App

Another method is by using Apple's Remote app on your or iPad:

  1. On your device, open “Settings”, then navigate to “Notifications”.
  2. Find the “Remote” option and ensure notifications for it are switched on.
  3. When your Apple TV remote's battery is running low, you will receive a notification on your device.

These methods effectively help you to keep track of your remote's battery life so you can timely replace the batteries and keep your Apple TV viewing experience uninterrupted.
