Daisy is Apple's newest robot to help with iPhone recycling

Cobbled together from some of Liam's (the previous robot) parts like a modern-day Frankenstein, it can take apart nine versions of the iPhone and sort components for recycling. Dubbed Daisy, the robot is created to retrieve high-quality iPhone components that even traditional recyclers can't recover.

To commemorate Daisy's introduction Apple is also making Earth Day donations to the Conservation International non-profit.

As we approach Earth Day 2018, Apple has revealed its latest disassembly robot, who's job it is to take old iPhones apart and reclaim the materials for future use. 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. 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.


Underscoring Apple's commitment towards the environment and its ongoing effort to be as eco-friendly as possible, the company earlier today announced a new disassembly robot created to take device recycling to the next level. For each Apple device received today through April 30, Apple will make a donation to Conservation International to support its efforts to preserve and protect the environment.

"At Apple, we're constantly working toward smart solutions to address climate change and conserve our planet's precious resources", said Lisa Jackson, Apple's vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, in a statement. And for now, Apple customers with obsolete iPhones can recycle them through the GiveBack program at Apple Stores or on the Apple website. 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.
