Original Apple remote

Is the original Apple remote of any use these days?

I found this in a drawer. Needs a new battery.

I imagine it should still operate some devices that are capable… including the Apple TV, and some laptops?

I’m not sure that you can replace the battery in these. Not easily anyway…

Yeah slides out if I recall

Battery can be replaced fairly easily. I use some of these with an Apple TV after the kids lost the original. Got a bunch of them for free years ago in a box of old tech.

I’m pretty sure I had about 3 floating around at some stage!

Yep. Battery compartment slides out with a paperclip poke. I’ll pop in a new battery and see what it can do with my Apple TV.

Ok. I’ll have to dig mine out & give that a go. I have one of the newer aluminium ones anyway.
