Turn off the "Apple TV Keyboard" message on the iPad and iPhone

Note on the Apple TV keyboard input

No question - I would rather type in a password or a search term on the Apple TV ten times with the iPhone than with the spongy touch pad that the Siri Remote gives me. Anyone who has ever had to do this and doesn't have a password like "12345" will know what I'm talking about. ;)

This note on using the keyboard often appears on the iPhone or iPad if you have installed the remote app for the Apple TV.

Notifications on iOS devices

Seen in this way, the messages that pop up on the iPhone or iPad when you have installed the remote app on the iOS device are actually very helpful. Because they allow text entries on the Apple TV to be done quickly via the iPhone. If you have not yet used the app in connection with your Apple TV, you will find it here:

If this app is installed on an iOS device and you open the search function on Apple TV, for example, or you have to enter a password, the following message appears in the message center or in the lock screen of the iPad or iPhone:

Apple TV keyboard

Keyboard entry: Enter text on the Apple TV using the iOS keyboard. Press here to tap.

However, if you use an iPad in addition to the iPhone or even several in the household that also have the remote app installed, these push notifications from the ATV appear in all iOS devices, which can be a bit annoying under certain circumstances.

The settings can be used to suppress the messages that the Apple TV sends to the Apple TV remote app on the iOS devices.

Switch off via the message center

The push notifications can, however, easily be suppressed. To do this, you proceed as with other apps that are too communicative. Go to “Settings” on your iPhone or iPad, then “Notifications” and look for the “Apple TV Keyboard” app. If you click on it, you get to the settings of this app and you can suppress all messages with the slider at the top. You can see these menus and settings in the screenshots above.

No app installed, but still the popup?

Since some users seem to have the problem that they have not installed the app on the iPhone / iPad at all and accordingly the settings are not displayed, but they still receive the push notifications - here is a workaround for this: The app was probably on the device once installed and there are still any leftovers that lead to the notifications.

In order to become this master, you should install the "Apple TV Remote" app again at short notice, then switch off the messages using the instructions above and then delete the app from the iOS device again. This means that push notifications should no longer be displayed in the future.
