Apple TV Slated To Totally Revamp Remote

After 8 long years of having a very simple remote control for the Apple TV units, Apple Inc has announced that they intend to change things up a bit.

When they new Apple TV units are available later this summer, the new remotes that come with them will be slightly thicker but will have a touch pad added to its design. The remote will only have two actual buttons, with the rest of the functions being available through the touchpad.

This addition is a drastic change to Apple’s minimalist approach it has had with their remotes until now. The current units have three buttons that are designed to allow easy of handling and use while still allowing full functionality of these units. The touch screen addition may or may not follow their rule of simplicity to date, we will all have to wait until they announce the release with details in June.
