How to control your Apple TV with the touch of a button

If you like using the original Apple Siri remote, then, by all means, stick with it. Or if you need to replace it, the updated Siri Remote has a handy trackpad and works with Siri voice control. This is the best Apple TV remote for most people.

If you want something great for gaming, try the SteelSeries Nimbus +. It's an excellent controller that allows you to quickly tap and flawlessly connect to all of your best Apple devices, including your Apple TV. It comes with free four months of Apple Arcade too, if you have yet to try out the service.
