New Delhi, April 23: The Apple iPhone has got a new member of the family called Daisy, a robot. The new device looks like Liam- Apple’s first disassembly robot launched in 2016. The new robot can efficiently de-construct the iPhone to recover valuable materials.
Daisy is a part of Apple’s ‘Give Back Program’ launched to create a healthy planet through innovations. For every phone that a customer takes to Apple store through offline or online for direct recycling or as a trade- in, the company will create a donation to the non-profitable organisation- Conversation International. In return, the Apple will give the customers an in-store credit or an Apple Gift Card, as per the customer’s choice.
The main motive behind this program and Daisy is to to protect and preserve the environment, reads a statement by the Apple.
Daisy is created by the R&D team and its incorporates technology is based on Liam. As per the release, some parts of Liam has been used for the making of Daisy. “It (Daisy) is capable of disassembling nine versions of iPhone and sorting their high-quality components for recycling. Daisy can take apart up to 200 iPhone devices per hour, removing and sorting components, so that Apple can recover materials that traditional recyclers can’t — and at a higher quality,” the statement further says.
Last week the Cupertino based company announced that its whole management such as stores, offices, data centres and the others located across the country including China, United Kingdom and the United States is 100 percent powered with the clean energy.
