Yes I get this a lot from my 9 month year old, and he has been like this for a few months. I bought him a toy remote that he can safely chew on (because I worry he might pop the batteries out of the amazon remote/don't want him changing the channel/destroying the remote).
He's also obsessed with the iPad, I generally don't let him interact with it too much as he often wants to chew the corner, and my phone didn't appreciate when he crawled over and vomited over it.
When I have let him interact with my ipad (under my supervision) he really enjoyed pressing the virtual keyboard buttons of my synths. I recommend turning off gesture control as his little grasping hands just tend to close the apps immediately!
So yes, intense attraction to screens seems common at that age, especially when adults are looking at their tablets quite often (I am guilty of this). While you will often see recommendations for zero exposure to electronics (No screen time before 2.5 years often seems suggested) I find this to be unrealistic, and although I do let him watch some television for example, I make sure there is plenty of non-screen time, such as reading to him or playing with non electronic toys. I make an effort at times to put down my electronic gadgets more often and focus on my son. I can see a future where I will need to encourage him to NOT spend too much time on electronic devices, which I myself need to show more discipline in!
