Apple’s new Siri Remote does not come with an accelerometer or gyroscope. This means that the device likely will not be compatible with certain Apple TV games that rely on motion controls.
“The following message will appear on the Apple TV when opening a game that does not work with the new Siri Remote, according to tvOS 14.5 code seen by MacRumors contributor Steve Moser: ‘To play this game on your Apple TV, you need to connect the Apple TV Remote (1st generation) or a compatible PlayStation, Xbox or MFi controller,'” writes Joe Rossignol of MacRumors.
The new Siri Remote is not available for purchase at this time, but it is expected to hit stores in the second half of May. The device is currently priced at $59.99.
