There's an Apple TV remote app available for download in the iTunes Store, but if your iPhone is running iOS 11 or later, you don't need it. Your iPhone's Control Center is customizable, and one of the features you can add to it is your Apple TV Remote.

You can stream music from your iPhone to your Apple TV using Airplay. This wireless option makes listening to your music collection on your TV easy to do. It’s nice to Airplay your music to your Apple TV when you’re having a party or cleaning the house and you want music to serenade you. A college classmate of mine once told me that he played music constantly day and night. “I feel like I need a soundtrack for my life,” he said. It’s been 20 years since I’ve seen him and music playback has come a long way since that CD player clipped to his belt. If my former classmate now owns an iPhone, my guess would be that he is using AirPlay to keep his tunes playing wherever he goes. Here’s how to play music on Apple TV from iPhone using Airplay.

Using your iPhone as a remote for Apple TV is super easy to set up. Apple has improved upon the Remote app for Apple TV just as it’s improved upon the Apple TV itself.

The Remote app also allows you to input text for searches from your iPhone's keyboard. Here’s how to set up the Remote app for Apple TV on iPhone.
