Apple® today announced a major expansion of its recycling programs, quadrupling the number of locations USA customers can send their iPhone® to be disassembled by Daisy, its recycling robot. Apple said Thursday that it will quadruple the number of outlets in the United States where customers can send their iPhone to be disassembled by its recycling robot, Daisy.

Jackson pushed back against that notion, saying that smaller products reduce material use and that Apple focuses on making long lasting products.

Apple has already recycled almost 1 million devices.

Daisy can recover materials traditional recyclers cannot at a higher quality, and is now operational in the Netherlands and Texas in the US, Apple said. The new model could also include a "super-wide" camera using a 12-megapixel sensor made by Sony, according to the research. Daisy can take apart 15 different models of iPhones for a total of 1.2 million devices every year. According to the sustainability report, Apple's stock of Daisy devices is now capable of recognising and disassembling 15 different iPhone models and collectively processed more than one million devices past year. They'll be able to track both Apple and non-Apple devices, even if not connected to the internet, via Wi-Fi or cellular. The 9,000-square foot facility will work to find new ways to recycle using robotics and machine learning. The number of Apple Stores and network of Authorized Service Providers has grown to over 5,000 worldwide.

Apple has faced criticism in the past that its thin-and-light product designs make it hard to disassemble products so they can be recycled. The report can be viewed at apple.com/environment. Although the resolution isnt very much, I really loved how the selfies looked back when I was reviewing the Apple iPhone XR thanks to Apples Smart HDR.

Finally, Apple is celebrating Earth Day, which is next Monday, April 22nd, with an Apple Watch Earth Day Challenge.

Apple revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. We still have to get through summer, so anything could change in the mean time. We hope other companies do the same.
