iFixit has posted a video teardown of the new Apple TV 4K and Siri Remote.

After almost 4 years Apple has finally updated the Apple TV 4K. This new version features an updated processor, the ability to calibrate your TV using your iPhone, and a redesigned Siri Remote (thank god!). It still looks the same on the outside, but we’re dying to know if they’ve updated anything else in this shiny black box so let’s tear it down!

Notably, the Apple TV contains a large fan that is powered by metal contact pins on the heat sink. The Siri Remote battery is 15.2Wh and comes out with the Lightning port. Their cables are soldered together which will complicate repairs.

iFixit gives the new Apple TV 4K an 8 of out 10 on the Repairability scale.
