The Siri Remote is distinguished by a trackpad covering the upper third of the remote. The touch surface allows for clicking, swiping in either of four directions for navigation, and tilting the trackpad button in any direction to "tilt" buttons in the interface. On September 12, 2017 Apple released a modified Siri Remote with a white outline around the menu button, included with Apple TV 4K and available individually, and reduced the retail price to $59 from the original $79.
