Apple released the fourth Developer beta of iOS 12.2 yesterday and the Remote icon within Control Centre has changed. Where before it was the Apple TV logo, it’s now an image of the Siri remote.
At first glance this doesn’t seem all that newsworthy but keep in mind that Apple is drumming up support for HomeKit and AirPlay 2-Enabled TV’s. Already this year we’ve heard from LG, Sony and Samsung pledging support for these technologies on their future products, so it makes sense to me that the remote icon changes to a remote. Even if it does happen to perfectly resemble the Apple TV remote in the process.
