Apple TV ‘Touch To Set Up’ Feature via iOS 7 Device Uses Bluetooth LE
 
 

Apple TV 3rd generation can be set up by just simply tapping your iOS 7 device 'Tap Control' using Bluetooth LE. The simplicity of the process is something that goes in its favor.

Users of Apple TV may now install it through a simple tap of an iOS 7 device against it. The long procedure of searching through menus is over. The consumer’s Wi-Fi connectivity, password code, iTunes Store account, linguistic preference and locality will get sent to the media streaming device. The two gadgets are linked through Bluetooth. It shows once and for all the use to which iPhones and iPads may be put. 

This is especially so in case of Apple’s iBeacon technology. Found within beta software recently, this technology is now being sent to users by means of an Apple TV software update. The method of tapping to set up the device is almost magical in its miraculous effortlessness. The system employs BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) to gauge the proximity of the two devices. 

The third generation Apple TV is a remake of the tuna can-sized set top box that originally came out. It had a Bluetooth chip within it to boot. The high tech giant is already looking for ways of using these fine technologies in order to create a hands free mobile payment method. 


This Apple TV set up is a lot easier than choosing letters over a display screen with the supplementary remote. It lends seamless technology a new air. And it is the ideal source of entertainment for couch potatoes everywhere.
