Just in time for Earth Day, Apple has announced an update to its 2016 iPhone recycling robot Liam. The new system, named Daisy can extract parts and valuable metals from up to 200 iPhone devices per hour. Daisy is only one-third the length of Liam and is even made with some parts reused from Liam.
Apple has announced new recycling initiatives in time for today's Earth Day celebrations. The company's latest goals were revealed as part of its 2017 Environmental Responsibility Report, covering fiscal year 2016. Apple plans to implement a completely closed-loop supply chain, which means it would no longer need to use materials acquired through mining operations.
