Removing duplicate entries from Remote App on iPhone

It’s no secret that I use an iPhone and Apple Watch. With those in the house, adding an Apple TV to the mix made a lot of sense from an eco-system point of view. A while back, I encountered the issue that I had duplicate Apple TV entries in the Remote App on my iPhone.

I attempted the standard stuff, like restarting the app, restarting the iPhone and so on, to no avail. After a little bit of trial and error, I found a solution; I removed all connected apps from the Apple TV and set them up anew. Here’s how I did it:

  1. Open Settings on your Apple TV
  2. Go to Remotes and and Devices
  3. Go to Remote App and Devices
  4. Remove all devices listed that correspond to the problematic device
  5. Unlock your device, and hold it near the Apple TV (ensuring that Bluetooth is on)
  6. Tap connect when prompted.

That resolved the issue for me,
