"With the changes we've made to the Siri Remote - including making it a bit thicker so it won't fall in your couch cushions as much - that need to have all these other network devices find it seems a bit lower," he said.
The redesigned remote also nixes both the accelerometer and the gyroscope, meaning that it can't be used as a game controller. Twerdahl says that's because Apple believes "a dedicated game controller is the best experience" for users wanting to play a game. Apple initially required all Apple TV games to support the Siri Remote, but that policy has since been changed.In non marketing crafted language that means: we had a margin target and to achieve it we had to ditch bits. Note there is no Apple game controller to substitute (probably a good thing tbh).
I honestly dont get the fauxrage about not having the remote in Find My — how hard is it to lift up the seat cushions? It’s not like you’re going to be driving across town trying to find your TV remote.
I have usually recommended to friends and family to get the current model, but for the X and XS there’s no way I could justify the price tag. Last year I told them to get a 7 or an 8, because the extra price is for not must haves. I wanted to upgrade from my 7 this year, but opted for the battery replacement instead (before dec 31). I also want a smaller phone, which is currently not offered. Something like a 4.5-4.7” phone. These 3 things are what have kept me from buying a new phone (price, size, cheap battery replacement).
