It's a heatsink for the power supply, not necessarily so much for the CPU. iPhone's use external AC to DC adapters more commonly known as "chargers" because iPhones have batteries to charge with them. This Apple TV, like many set top boxes, integrates the AC to DC adapter.
Glad to see I'm not the only one seeing that messed up blue shadow behind the test flight icon lol
The best implementation of this kind of feature I've seen is in Slack. They recently added "reactions" and it allows anyone to add a "reaction" to any post.

Apple's single biggest problem right now is how far behind they are in graphics tech on OS X. They absolutely must find a way to start keeping up. Whether that's through pivoting to a new graphics API like metal or something else, they have to find a way to stop being 3 years behind because it hurts OS X in profound ways that go far beyond games. And really, when I think about it further, it's not even that much a problem of hardware, since when it comes to laptops, apple...
