Ok, file this one under minutiae or, I hope, at least interesting, but…
I like to keep my Apple TV names* as short as possible to make them quick to read in the Apple TV Remote App on my iPhone (and on iCloud.com). Perhaps you’d like to do that, too. Here’s how…
First, review my previous post on Using Text Replacement on iPhone.
Then, check out yesterday’s post on Controlling Apple TV with Your iOS Device.
Last, follow these steps on your Apple TV…
- Open Settings.
- Click General.
- Click About.
- Then click Name and then choose a room location or Custom Name to rename the device and use your Text Replacement shortcut to insert the where you would like it (e.g., “ABL BR TV”—BR is for Bedroom).
Tip: If you have Mac, you can set up the text replacement there first, and then use the shortcut on any of your iOS devices. See Using Text Replacement on a Mac.
*I have three myself, and there are nine among my extended family for sharing movies.
