Apple packs all kinds of less obvious features inside every iOS device. Apple TV really is no exception. From hidden menus to the amazing Siri Remote’s talents and super-easy ways to navigate between on-screen items, this short tips collection will have you getting much more from your Apple set-top-box in no time whatsoever, so take a look:
Digging Deep Settings
Apple TV has a secret advanced settings menu. This is aimed at developers and tech support specialists, so the controls aren’t going to be that useful to most people, but if you want to see them just press the Play/Pause button four times when in Settings > Software Updates, and all will then be revealed.
There’s another cool hidden trick – Demo Mode. This is the mode you find Apple TV units in when you come across them in the showroom at your local Apple Retail Store. To put your Apple TV into this mode, tap through to Settings>General>About, click Play/Pause four times and your Apple TV will be set up.
Always more to learn
Apple is fantastic at creating products you can begin using effectively once you get them out the box, layering more sophisticated tools you can learn as you get to know your product. Apple TV is a great example of this.
