Is This Robot Apple’s Most Important Device Yet?

From Fully Charged Show.

If the 2.24 billion iPhones sold worldwide could be recycled, could Apple stop mining new materials?! The team developing Daisy, the company’s recycling robot, certainly hopes so. In fact, Apple has committed to offering iPhones with 100% recycled cobalt by 2025 and wants to get as much materials currently sitting in retired devices back into the global supply chain. Robert went to see Daisy in action to find out more.
