Apple's new robot is here to help you ditch your old iPhone

Apple's new robot is here to help you ditch your old iPhone Apple's new robot is here to help you ditch your old iPhone

The company had previously built another robot dubbed Liam, and in true Apple fashion, it seems that Daisy is actually made up of parts from Liam.

As part of Apple's Earth Day 2018 initiative, the company unveiled Liam's replacement today named Daisy. In all, Daisy is capable of taking apart a full 200 iPhones in a given hour, proving a solid alternative to traditional methods that can destroy valuable components in the process. Now the company has announced it is working harder on recycling those materials sitting within every iPhone. Apple's GiveBack program lets customers return old devices to Apple Stores or Apple.com for recycling, and newer devices can even be traded in for Apple Store credit. "We're also thrilled to introduce Daisy to the world, as she represents what's possible when innovation and conservation meet".

Apple has a new recycling robot.

Cook cited the 3 to 4 week wait times for iPhone battery replacements at Apple retail stores earlier this year as proof that customers want to fix, rather than replace, their iThings.

Daisy can take apart nine types of iPhone at a rate of up to 200 devices an hour and rescue screws, displays, cobalt, lithium and other elements that can be repurposed. "In recognition of Earth Day, we are making it as simple as possible for our customers to recycle devices and do something good for the planet through Apple GiveBack".

Daisy was developed in-house by Apple engineers, using some of Liam's parts - a recycling of sorts. The company also announced nine additional manufacturing partners committed to powering all of their Apple production with 100 percent clean energy, bringing the total number of supplier commitments to 23.

As a bonus, Apple Watch users will receive a notification about the Earth Day Challenge which encourages users to go outside and exercise for at least 30 minutes.
