Apple Wants To Make Your iPhone A Lot More Eco-Friendly

22 April 2017, 02:03 | Dawn Berry

Aside from the new design and OLED display of iPhone 8, the latest from Apple is expected to boast new augmented reality capabilities and other camera features. It'll use recycled materials instead - but that's about as far as the plan goes right now.

Apple also said that for every 100 000 iPhone 6 devices, Liam has the potential to recover 1900 kilograms of aluminium, 800 kilograms of copper, 300 grams of gold, 400 grams of "platinum group metals", seven kilograms of silver, 55 kilograms of tin, 24 kilograms of rare earth elements, 550 kilograms of cobalt, 3.5 kilograms of tungsten and 2.5 kilograms of tantalum. We already have programs in place to ensure the finite materials we use in our products are sourced responsibly through strict standards and programs on the ground that drive positive change... The world's most valuable tech company is apparently having a pilot study of the dual-lenses for the selfie shooter, an upgrade from the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which have single camera sensor.

Outlined in the firm's 2017 sustainability report is a pledge to "one day stop mining the earth altogether", as Apple seeks to introduce new products and operating techniques into the market. Liam, the name for Apple's robotic disassembly and recycling system, will help with that, the company said. The company is looking to recover cobalt from lithium-ion batteries used in the phones, the report stated. Funding from such activities could actually help pay for more recycling - a recent USA Today story dove into how falling prices for recycled stock material have put the crunch on recycling companies.

Pence says trade with South Korea must change
But asked Wednesday if he envisioned direct negotiation between North Korea and the US, Pence replied, "not at this time". They will meet again this year to ensure the project achieves "concrete economic results in the near term", Pence said.

Apple's Environmental Responsibility Report reveals some rather nasty tricks that the company does to kill off the life span of its products.

Samsung is estimated to have only 50 million AMOLED panels for other manufacturers in the next years after counting the demand of its own and that of Apple for its iPhone 8. If the company is serious about reducing its own pollution, it needs to develop recycling practices that it and its partners can both use to fix and reuse existing products, not just manufacture new ones.

Apple plans to primarily use secondary aluminium derived from its own products and processes.
