Introduction: How to Open the Apple Remote

I think is a stupid thing but i spend many hours to try to open the apple remote for changhe the battery or only for have a lokk inside..
i try many different thing and in the end i open it whith a knife..after i had open it i found the correct system...

Step 1: Open

Put the bottom of the remote up, find a little circle on the plastic and push it whith a pen or a little screwdrive..
is very more simple to do then to say...

Step 2: Finish!

Now change the battery o simply have a look inside..

bye thank's for the time...

    it is in the manual... i have one. i too wondered at the actual need of this instructable. on the positive side though, he/she/it took really good pictures demonstrating what to do!

    the same remote comes with the universal ipod dock, and it tells you how to open it in its manual. but, i bought the dock expecting the menu button to allow you to navigate the menu's. you cant... the button does nothing.

    Apple wants to make their product so stylish that we need to figure out how to open the battery compartment of the remote!

    good review, It is amassing that a company making such brilliant products gets people confused. (It is less simple than my iMac)

    People need a manual for that? Isn't it entirely self explanatory? Although, since there is an apparent need for an Instructable, I guess not.....

    I thought MacBoys don't read their manuals... their things just work right?
