Apple will be packaging a new remote for the Apple TV sooner than later. The new remote will have the Touch ID fingerprint we’re familiar with the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 6’s. The main reason for this is that Apple wants to beef up security measures to help deter hackers.
Furthermore, as soon as Apple releases the new Apple TV remote, users are able to customize interface layouts. Apparently this will allow users to easily maneuver and personalize their own profile without all the annoying login procedures.
Not only does the feature give users full control of their settings, parental control is monitored within its settings as well. Fingerprints from children cannot access the media library and one’s billing information.
