Apple updates Remote to get your iPhone ready for the new AppleTV

The update isn’t ‘just’ for the iPhone talking to the new AppleTV, there are other enhancements in there too. But, that is the headliner for many as they await their AppleTV delivery at the end of this week. The free Remote app works on the iPhone, Touch and iPad.

From Apple:
