iFixit has posted its teardown of the new Apple TV 4K.

Two long years have passed since our last encounter with an Apple TV. Today on our teardown table, we have a shiny new Apple TV 4K plucked straight from the technology orchards of Cupertino.

Highlights:
● The bottom panel has been redesigned for what looks like some serious thermal venting.
● Bye-bye, USB-C port.
● It looks like Apple merged the new fan with the heat sink/EMI shield assembly from the Apple TV 4th Generation
● Replaceable fan driven by a Nidec brushless motor.
● Apple 343S00198 64-bit A10X Fusion processor
● SK Hynix H9HCNNNBRUMLQR 2 GB LPDDR4 RAM and SK Hynix H9HCNNN8KUMLQR 1 GB LPDDR4 RAM for a total of 3 GB
● The new power supply is rated for 12 V at 1.083 A.

Repairability Score: 8 out of 10
● Plastic clips hold the case together for easy opening.
● Modular components make for easy disassembly and repair.
● The power supply is modular and features a removable AC-in jack.
● Standard Torx screws hold everything together.
● All major components are soldered to the logic board, meaning fixing any port problems will require board-level soldering or a full board replacement.
