Apple touts greater use of recycled metal in gadgets

22 April 2017

Considering the demand from Apple, and other partners of Samsung like Oppo and Vivo, the shortage supply of OLED is most likely to happen according to Android Authority. The world's most valuable tech company is apparently having a pilot study of the dual-lenses for the selfie shooter, an upgrade from the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which have single camera sensor.

Apple is reportedly readying for the launch of the newest iPhone in line with its 10 year anniversary. "We believe our goal should be a closed-loop supply chain, where products are built using only renewable resources or recycled material", Apple report said.

Apple has revealed how scientists in the company's lab produce synthetic human sweat to use in the testing process for new products.

The "closed loop" project is probably the most immediately interesting of Apple's long-term initiatives, but the full report is worth a read if you're interested in Apple's energy production and water use, how it sources paper and reduces the amount of packaging material it uses, and how it attempts to cut down on waste by building more durable components that last longer.

Zak said he was surprised to learn that Bose had sent " all available media information " from his smartphone to third parties. The complaint filed on Tuesday by Kyle Zak accuses Bose of violating the WireTap Act and other privacy laws.

The company's research concluded that recycled aluminum should come from Apple products rather than from recycling facilities because of the high grade needed for the metal. "For tin, we took a different approach", the tech giant said.

Apple doesn't necessarily need to recover as much tin, compared to aluminium, due to an existing market of recycled content. This would allow it to end its reliance on mining "one day". "That means continuing to invest in ways to recover materials from our products-like Liam, our line of disassembly robots-and encouraging our customers to return products through Apple Renew, our recycling programme". For the Apple iPhone 8, the report claimed that Apple will use an edge-to-edge OLED screen display provided by the South Korean OEM Samsung, echoing a recent Nikkei report which stated that Apple placed orders for about 70 million OLED display panels from Samsung.

And the company has been praised by environmental groups for its commitment to environmentally-friendly procedures. So we'll no doubt continue to see companies, including Apple, make efforts in these areas.
