3D-Printed Case Lets You Attach an AirTag to Your Apple TV Remote

Apple recently released a redesigned Siri Remote with a physical clickpad, but if you have an original Siri Remote laying around that you still plan on using, you may be interested in getting an AirTag case for the remote.

PrintSpired Designs has capitalized on the opportunity with a new 3D printed, made-to-order AirTag case for the original Siri Remote. The remote slides into the top side of the case, while an AirTag can be placed into an opening on the bottom, allowing the location of the remote to be tracked in the Find My app on Apple devices.

As a 3D printed case, the design of the remote is bound to look a little rough around the edges, but PrintSpired Designs says the remote fits snugly and securely and that the AirTag satisfyingly clicks into place on the bottom. The case is printed with hard PLA plastic, with black, white, or glow-in-the-dark versions to choose from. There is a cutout for a Lightning cable to be connected for charging without removing the case.

Another thing to keep in mind is that, due to the orientation of the AirTag in the case, the loudness of the built-in speaker may be reduced.

The case is priced at $12.99 on the PrintSpired Designs website, or you can buy the STL file for $1.99 and 3D print your own.

The remote itself should have been compatible with FindMy, assuming it isn't.

Also, will AirTags be a good solution for this since we now know the tracking ability can't be shared among family members? Seems like a remote-finding solution should respond to a request from anyone in the household.

It's still unbelievable to me the new remote doesn't have the W1/Airtag functionality built in.

Remotes and mice. What is it about Apple where they just don't get things that people hold to interact with UIs? The trackpad is the only physical UI device Apple has clear superiority in - and that may be more to synaptics than them ?

Calls spouse: I can't find the remote, can you tell me where it is on your phone?
Spouse: It says it's somewhere in the house, does that help?
