When you need to charge your remote, an alert appears on your TV. At any time, you can check your remote's charge. Just go to Settings > Remotes and Devices > Remote and select your remote.
Charge your remote
The Siri Remote takes about two and a half hours to fully charge and you can continue using your remote while it charges. There are two ways** to charge your remote:
- Plug it in to your computer with the included Lightning to USB Cable.
- Plug it in to a wall outlet with an Apple USB Power Adapter, such as the one that came with your iPhone or iPad. An Apple USB Power Adapter doesn't come with your Apple TV.
You can't charge your remote from your Apple TV.
* Apple TV 4K and Apple TV (4th generation) ships with the same remote everywhere. In countries and regions that support Siri, the remote is called Siri Remote. Elsewhere, it’s called Apple TV Remote. Siri works on either remote as long as your Apple TV 4K or Apple TV (4th generation) is set up with a language and country or region that supports Siri.
** The battery in the remote isn't accessible to users. For more information, see the service page for this product.
