    I feel like it would have been pretty neat if the new Apple TV 4K came with wireless charging capabilities for the remote.

    Most people would likely hide the Apple TV away, so that's pretty inconvenient..

    I mean giving the remote QI wireless charging so it could work with things like airpower instead of using the lighting cable.

    The remote is already extremely expensive - This would likely increase the price even more, and for technology which would be used twice a year at most.

    With the remote now baked into iOS11’s control centre I don’t think there will be much need.

    I hardly use the remote. Usually use my Logitech Harmony to control it.

    What I don't get is why there is no real iCloud backup incl. local data of the apps. All they introduced is a backup of your home screen. A list of installed apps and the position of the icons, incl. folders, is stored, but not the data of the apps it seems ?

    I use the remote every day and have to charge it maybe 2 or 3 times a year. Waste of time and money to worry about how It charges. And like others have said, the Apple TV sits behind my tv. Not a good wireless charging pad, would be different if it could one day charge anything in the same room though...
