How To Make iPhone Remote Work On OS3.0

If you’ve just recently updated your iPhone to version 3.0 of the iPhone software you may have noticed that the apple Tunes remote application has stopped working. When I updated, attempting to open the remote application would instantly cause it to crash. I quickly looked to see if there was an update, and there wasn’t.

A quick search of forums, blogs, and twitter shows that a few other people are having the same problem.

Good news, there is an update available, except it’s not marked as an update.

Here’s how to make your iPhone remote application work:

Load up the app store on the iPhone and search for remote. You’ll see the exact same application you have installed. Click the “install” to re-download it and you’ll get a popup saying you already have this application. Tap yes to install it anyway.

That’s all there is to it. The remote application should work as normal now.
