    ATV 4 Doesn't work with a keyboard or with an iPhone
    Despite all that's been said, iTV4 Doesn't work with a keyboard or with an iPhone. iPhone is even offered as an alternative for setup, but folks are stuck with the horrible one letter, drag, letter interface. Typing in your apple ID and password is no fun.

    Where have you read that the new ATV works like that? It's been widely reported that you can't connect a bluetooth keyboard to it, and that the existing Remote app foriOS doesn't work with it.

    EDIT: for the record, I think Apple's failure to enable support for both of these was downright shortsighted, even negligent. Everyone rightfully should have expected these to work.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Have a look in the App Store for Apple TV Remote which works with the ATV4.

    Thanks to @Slydude for this information.
