Daisy, Apple's new recycling robot, can disassemble nine versions of the iPhone. Its predecessor, Liam, was custom designed for the iPhone 6.
The new robot supercharges its predecessor's capabilities, operating more quickly and tearing down a much higher number of device models.
Daisy replaces Liam and uses some of the older machine's components.
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.
Daisy is located in Austin, Texas. A second machine will eventually be placed in Europe.
Daisy's improved technology allows Apple to sort out materials that traditional recyclers can't recover.
Daisy is part of Apple's push to promote Earth Day. The company has been focused for years on making its products and its operations more environmentally friendly and has long said it aimed to run its operations entirely on renewable energy.
Daisy's predecessor, Liam (pictured here), has been retired.
