[* black] After pulling out the T7 Torx screws, we get access to Apple TV's biggest fan!
[* black] Apple didn't replace that heat sink/EMI shield/bracket we found in the Apple TV 4th Generation. Instead, they merged the heat sink with a fan for one whopper of a cooling solution.
[* icon_note] This Voltron of a thermal assembly is probably key in dissipating the heat associated with rendering 4K video.
[* black] With the twist of a few more Torx screws, the assembly is ''disassembled''.
[* black] The fan features a [|Nidec brushless motor|new_window=true] and can be independently replaced.
[* black] It apparently also features an [|identity disk]. TRON, is that you?
[* icon_note] A replaceable fan is good news for owners. Otherwise, we're guessing that a failed fan would quickly mean a failed device.
