The new robot supercharges its predecessor's capabilities, operating more quickly and tearing down a much higher number of device models.

RIP Liam

Daisy can disassemble up to 200 phones an hour. Assuming Daisy runs 24 hours a day, that would total 1.75 million iPhones a year. Liam could take apart 1.2 million iPhones a year when it launched two years ago.
