You Won't Lose Your Apple TV Remote With Elago's New AirTag Remote Case

Elago is known for its range of clever case designs for Apple's devices, and its newest case designed for the Apple TV Siri Remote adds the one feature that Apple left out - Find My functionality.

With the ‌Apple TV‌ ‌Siri‌ Remote R5 Case, there's space to insert an AirTag at the back, which means that if you ever lose your remote, you can locate the AirTag that's inside with the ‌Find My‌ app.

Priced at $15, the Elago Remote R5 Case is made from a thick layer of what the company calls premium silicone, which is designed to protect the remote from drops and other damage.

Elago says that the design of the R5 was modeled after its previous cases, but with the added AirTag holder functionality. With this case, all buttons remain accessible, including the ‌Siri‌ button on the side, which is protected by a silicone cover.

The ‌Apple TV‌ ‌Siri‌ Remote R5 Case can be purchased from Amazon or from the Elago website for $14.99.

I probably would have went with making the case longer and putting the AirTag on the bottom, vs making the remote thicker.

I ordered it right away. Not sure why people give a crap on how thick it is. It's a remote. Why do remotes have to be thin. Your hands aren't built for thin remotes. This gives it a heft that is welcome, plus you can put an AirTag in it which is great. people just like to complain about everything.

This has got to be one of the most first world problems things I've seen in a while.

Imagine if someone told you 30 years ago that in the future, we'll have tracking technology to attach to our TV remotes so that it can tell us exactly where the remote is.

First world problems are what this site and its coverage of expensive Apple products is all about.
