Remote for Apple TV

Siri Remote or Apple TV Remote*

  1. Stay within range of your Apple TV when you use your Siri Remote, since the remote relies on Bluetooth. If you’re nearby but the volume controls don’t respond, move anything that blocks the path between your remote and the front of your television or receiver. For volume, your remote sometimes needs a line of sight to the IR sensor on the front of your home-theater equipment.
  2. Charge your Siri Remote or Apple TV Remote for 30 minutes using a Lightning to USB cable and a USB wall charger.
  3. Point your remote three inches away from your Apple TV. Then press and hold your remote’s Menu and Volume Up buttons for five seconds. If asked, place your remote on top of Apple TV to complete pairing.
  4. Unplug your Apple TV from the wall power outlet. Wait at least six seconds, then plug it back in.
  5. If you have an Apple Remote (aluminum or white), try it instead of your Siri Remote. Or, if you already set up your Apple TV, you can use the Apple TV Remote app for iOS to control your Apple TV.

    If you still need help, contact Apple Support.

OS X El Capitan: Use the Character Viewer

Use the Character Viewer to enter emoji, symbols, accented letters, and characters from other languages (such as Japanese, Chinese, or Korean) into your documents.

Open the Character Viewer: In a document, choose Edit > Emoji & Symbols, or press Control-Command-Space.

If you previously used the Character Viewer, or set the option in Keyboard preferences to show it in the Input menu, you can also open it from the Input menu.

To open Keyboard preferences, choose Apple menu >  System Preferences, click Keyboard, then click Keyboard.

Expand or collapse the Character Viewer: Click the expand or collapse button  in the upper-right corner of the viewer. You may need to scroll to the top of the viewer.

Browse characters and symbols: Click the buttons across the bottom of the viewer (if it’s collapsed) or along the left edge of the viewer (it it’s expanded). When the viewer’s expanded, additional categories are visible.

If you don’t see a character or symbol, try searching for it by the Unicode name (such as Question Mark) or code (such as U+003F).

For some emojis, such as those for people, you can hold down an emoji to see variations of it.

Insert a character or symbol in a document: Position the insertion point in the document where you want the item to appear, then click the item in the viewer. If the viewer’s expanded, double-click the item.

Make a symbol or character a favorite: Expand the viewer, select an item, then click Add to Favorites. Or drag the item onto Favorites (if shown) in the sidebar.

Customize the Character Viewer: Expand the viewer, then click the Action pop-up menu You can make the symbols larger so they’re easier to see. To change the categories shown in the viewer, choose Customize List, select or deselect categories, then click Done.

If an app doesn’t use Unicode (a worldwide character set that works with most languages), you may not be able to type some special characters and symbols. Try inserting a different character or using a different app.
