[* black] Our teardown engineers take a familiar access route through the underside of the Apple TV 4K.
[* black] Just like with its [guide|49046|single-K sibling|stepid=107484|new_window=true], the Apple TV 4K features repair-friendly plastic clips securing its rear panel rather than screws or less-than-friendly adhesive.
[* icon_note] These clips are a little more stubborn than what we've seen before–butbefore—but still, they're not terribly difficult. This upgraded unit gets a 1up as a reward.
