All Roku media players come with a simple but effective remote control. Though the remote isn’t essential – you can also control your Roku via a smartphone app on your iPhone or Android device – it’s pretty convenient.
But if your Roku remote isn’t working, you might need to reset it. You can also reset the remote if you want to use it on a different Roku player.
AirPlay, a useful casting feature on Apple products, allows you to cast media from your Apple device to many different Roku models. That means that you can display videos, photos, and other media on your TV, even if the casting feature isn’t working or isn’t available.
Not every Roku device supports AirPlay. If you want to use it, you’ll need a supported model:
Roku TV models Axxxx, Cxxxx, CxxGB, or 7xxxx
Streambar model 9102
Smart Soundbar models 9100 or 9101
Roku Ultra models 4640, 4660, 4662, 4661, 4670, or 4800
Roku Premiere models 3820, 4620, or 4630
Streaming Stick models 3810 or 3811
Of course, you’ll also need an Apple device that supports AirPlay, which is any iPhone, iPad, or iTouch running iOS 12.3 or later, or any Mac computer running MacOS Mojave 10.14.5 or later.
