While all Apple TVs come with the Siri Remote some people just don't like using it. Lucky for you, there are other options if you feel like you want a better experience. Whether you hate the Siri Remote, lost your old one, or are just scouting out the market, these are the best remotes to control your Apple TV.

The OG

Apple Siri Remote

If you've lost or broken your Siri Remote and need a replacement, you can pick one up at Apple. The small black glass remote is what ships with all new Apple TVs and it can do everything fairly simply. Use the touch trackpad on top of the remote to navigate through menus, fast forward, rewind, and otherwise control content.

Upgrade pick

Logitech Harmony 950

If you want a universal remote control that can do absolutely everything and you don't care about the price, the Logitech Harmony 950 is hands-down the best remote you can get. Acting as the central hub, the touchscreen allows you to access all the different devices you have connected to the remote, making it easy to switch between using your Apple TV, gaming console, cable box, or any other device.

Value pick

Logitech Harmony Smart Control

The Smart Control lets you control all of your smart devices, including your Apple TV, from either the remote itself or your iPhone, using the companion app. The included Harmony Hub also lets you control other devices through cabinet doors or walls.

Built-in preset

Inteset 4-in-1 Universal remote

The greatest thing about this remote is it comes preset to use with your Apple TV, which makes it incredibly easy to set up. Simply by pushing either the A, B, C or D buttons, you can set up the remote to function for Apple TV, Xbox One, Windows Media Center, and Roku respectively, making it easy to switch back and forth between devices.

Budget pick

GE 4-device universal remote (33709)

Although the GE 33709 is a very basic remote, it can still work with four devices at once. It also uses conventional AAA batteries (not included), which means you'll get months of battery life and you don't have to worry about another charging cable or station in your home.

For the gamers

SteelSeries Nimbus

While this isn't just a controller for your Apple TV, it certainly deserves its place on this list for all the Apple TV gamers out there. Gaming on Apple TV is so much more fun with a controller, and the MFi certified SteelSeries Nimbus is one of the best options around. It features pressure-sensitive buttons, and a 40+-hour battery life. It also has handy LEDs that display your status during multiplayer games.

$45 at Amason

If you're ok with the original Siri Remote, then by all means stick with it, but for my money, the Logitech Harmony Smart Control is the perfect remote, since it also lets you control your Apple TV and other devices straight from your iPhone or iPad — something Apple's own app sucks at doing.
