Nomad Launches Apple TV Remote Cover With Hidden AirTag Pocket

Apple accessory company Nomad today announced the launch of its latest product, the Leather Cover for Siri Remote. Nomad designed the Leather Cover to accommodate an AirTag, adding Find My tracking capabilities to the ‌Siri‌ Remote.

Priced at $40, the Leather Cover is made from dark brown Horween leather and it fits snugly around the remote. At the back, there is a little pocket where an AirTag can be tucked inside, and then a flap hides it away for a more streamlined look.

There were rumors that the latest Apple TV Remote might feature ‌Find My‌ integration, but when the device launched, there was no sign of the tracking feature. Instead, it works like every other ‌Apple TV‌ remote and has no special feature for locating it should it become lost.

With the addition of an AirTag, the ‌Apple TV‌ Remote can be located in the ‌Find My‌ app right alongside your other devices. The Leather Cover for ‌Siri‌ Remote can be purchased today from the Nomad website.

$40 accessory to hold a $30 AirTag for my $60 remote... or I can just not lose my remote?

Still can't believe Apple didn't decide to include this functionality right out of the box. I have a toddler and thus lose my remote daily. Don't see myself buying this but would definitely love to see it incorporated into future releases.

I hate when they are so greedy. It would have been a wonderful feature to have but now we have to pay $70 on top of the already expensive Apple TV price.

New remote, $60.
Holder + AirTag, $70.

This sounds like a solution looking for a problem. Maybe just put the remote back in the same spot when you're done with it?
