What Can You Do With an Apple TV? 

Apple TV is known for its high-resolution video playback, Siri voice control interactions, and most recently Apple TV+, its streaming service. 

Even though the device may appear intimidating, it’s quite simple to use.

Once set up, you can still watch cable TV, as well as stream your favorite original shows from Apple TV+, Netflix, Hulu, and others alike. 

You can also play music directly from your audio library and play games that can be found in the app store. 

And not to worry if you do not have your Apple remote on hand. Opt to use your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch to have complete control over your TV. Your Apple TV is also compatible with Bluetooth accessories such as AirPods, keyboards, and game controllers.


Apple has done a great job at making sure its device is accessible to everyone with its features that support all vision, hearing,  physical, and moto skills such as live captions, audio playback, and magnified text. 

What Can the Apple TV Improve? 

Apple TV’s main flaw is its lack of content and streaming service. 

Even though Apple TV+ streams hundreds of shows, many being original features, it does not compare to other streaming services like Disney+ and Netflix. According to Bloomberg, Apple managed to reach 10 million subscribers in February 2020, but only half were found to use the service actively. 

Critics say that the streaming service needs to focus on expanding its catalog with new and original shows, movies, and animations. But until then, Apple TV+ is not going to thrive the way it originally planned to. 

Hopefully, the streaming service can improve alongside the device it is often streamed on.
