iOS 17's greatest sneak feature?

Finding a lost Apple TV remote with your iPhone.

After decades of maddening frustration, Apple finally debuted perhaps the most important feature of any operating system anywhere: the ability to find a lost TV remote.

iOS 17 packs a brand-new feature that lets you track down your errant Apple TV clicker. Alas, it only works for Apple’s remotes, but it’s a start!
