This kind of device used to come with iMacs as standard and was white and plastic. This version is essentially the same, but - in keeping with Apple's mission to manufacture everything in a basic uniform design - it now comes in anodised aluminium. The change is a step up. It's longer and narrower than its white predecessor, and feels about 200% sturdier and easier to hold. In fact, it's more than just easy to hold, it's great. The convex, seamless aluminium just seems to invite being touched; the only thing that's (strangely) missing is an engraved Apple logo.

The remote uses infrared technology. The title says it's for iPhone or iPod, but it'll only work with those devices via an attached dock or infrared receiver. It's more readily used with iMac, MacBook, Mac mini or Apple TV, all of which come with infrared receivers built-in. Some people prefer to use Apple's free Remote app on an iPhone or iPod touch, to navigate an Apple TV for example, but I find the app to be unwieldy and unduly draining on the device's battery. This remote uses a single CR 2032, which is good for months and months of use.

If you use an old plastic Apple remote a lot, it's worth upgrading to this one for the great feeling of the exterior and its improved durability. Until Apple comes up a dedicated, more complex remote (with a screen), this little device is the best Apple remote going, and the low price makes it well worth it.

Did not even have to marry this op just opened it and used it with our Apple TV box. Not sure what it will be like with anything else but with Apple TV works a treat

I just bought this new aluminium remote to use with my Macbook Pro Unibody and its really very nice. The remote is made from aluminium with black buttons that match the new Macbook Pro's perfectly! It is extremely slim with curved edges, making it comfortable to hold. It is also quite a bit longer than the white remotes, about 40% I'd estimate.

Using it with the Macbook is very easy, pairing takes a few seconds and it has an excellent range and the keys are responsive. Now, the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the button wheel isn't scrollable like an iPod click wheel. This would have been an excellent feature especially when browsing through long lists, but unfortunately it was not implemented. Other then that its an excellent remote which looks and feels very nice.

The remote itself is a nice, sleek bit of kit whose architecture is inspired by Gen 2+ iPod nanos (vs the first generation remote, whose architecture owed much more to first generation shuffle design). The brushed metal remote is longer, more scratch resistant, and has more buttons than the 1st gen remotes, but doesn't add anything in terms of device support.

The remote is not the iPod/iPhone exclusive device advertised. Instead, it's a catchall that doesn't do a great job where ANY Apple product is concerned. It works directly with iMac/Macbook/Mac Mini and INdirectly with iPod/iPhone/ - for the latter an Apple (compatible) docking station is required. Not sure where iPad fits on this scale.

If you own multiple devices from the preceding eligible groups, the remote works to some degree with all of them. There aren't many buttons, so functionality is REALLY limited and if multiple Apple devices are in the same room, with none tethered to the remote, the remote will work for all of the devices. Simultaneously. Cacophony.

If you don't want all of your Apple gadgets playing back at once, you need to tether the remote to a single Apple device. Which is counter-intuitive. A device selector/slider would enable users to employ a single remote on multiple Apple products. As things stand, if you want to use an Apple remote with your Apple device (and own more than one eligible product), you need to either buy a dedicated remote or dedicate one after purchase... and buy multiple remotes. It's silly, expensive and wasteful.

Apple, you can do better!

Legitimate and works for all apple devices. Light and cumbersome.
Stylish in design. Has volume and navigation for up + down(Volume), left and Right.
Pause and play.
Can't say any more.

Despite the cost, the product is perfectly efficent and definitely better than the older version.
It's very handy for ipod docks and for imacs and probably for apple tvs.The weight is practically inexistent.

I recommend it.

Funny and cool little product. My original plan was to buy this for my wife (simple and easy solution was needed for controlling XBMC with Mac mini). I was so positively surprised with the product and it actually also replaced my Logitech DiNovo mini which I was using previously as my main remote control. Now Apple Remote is also my main remote control in living room. DiNovo mini is left only for non-XBMC stuff (tuning OSX etc).

This was purchased to replace my apple tv 3rd generation remote which had stopped working. The remote worked straight out of the retail boxing. This is apple made and you cannot tell the difference with the original. The remote was well packaged and was competitively priced when compared worth other sellers. A great buy and I would recommend the seller.
