How to Use your Apple Watch as a Remote Control for iTunes

You can use your Apple Watch as an iTunes' Remote to comfortably navigate through your library and fine tune tracks right from your wrist. Interestingly, it doesn’t take too many steps to set them up for a long music drive!

iTunes has always been a great media player. What defines or rather sets it apart is purity. That’s primarily the main reasons why I love to play my favorite tracks via this popular media library whenever I’m working on my Mac. To ensure my music time continues to be in the high spirit or remain perfectly on track with my mood, I use my Apple Watch as a remote control for iTunes.

Whether it’s navigating tracks or adjusting volume, the Apple Watch works as a handy remote for iTunes. Want to try it out? Here you go!
