The Siri Remote is a remote control device designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 2015 to 2021 as part of the Apple Remote series. The device was introduced on September 9, 2015, and its price started at $79.

The Remote’s original function was to enable navigation in Front Row, which allows users to browse and play music, view videos (DVDs and downloaded files), and browse photos. This generation allowed to control the device by voice commands directed to Siri.

The Siri Remote is visually distinguished by a trackpad covering the upper third of its face. The multi-touch surface allows for clicking, and swiping in either of four directions for navigation and tilting the trackpad button in any direction to “tilt” buttons in the interface.

The Siri Remote is equipped with dual microphones for spoken input for Siri and text entry. In addition to controlling the Apple TV itself, the Siri Remote can learn the IR codes to control the volume of a TV, soundbar, or receiver.

On September 12, 2017, together with the Apple TV 4K, Apple announced an updated second-generation Siri Remote, with a raised white border around the menu button and additional motion input for apps. Additionally, the price was reduced to $59.

This Remote has been discontinued on April 20, 2021. Today Siri Remote is 8 years old!
