When it's time, Liam, he can structure iPhone.
Parts are detected, and removed, and separated.
So the materials inside those parts can be restored.
There's no other machine in the world that can do what Liam can do and it was conceived and designed by Apple Engineers right here in California.
The things we've learned from this project will help us make even bigger strives in the area of reuse and recycling as we go forward.
As you saw in the video, Liam separates the iPhone into its components.
This allows us to recover the materials, high quality materials, and re-introduce them into the global supply, and that saves natural resources.
So that tungsten from the iPhone alert module, can be used to make a precision cutting tool.
And the silver from motherboard can be used for a solar panel.
Now ultimately our goal is to create break throughs that allow us to use those high quality materials in our own products.
Because reuse and recycling is so important.
And that's where you can come in.
With Apple Renew, you can recycle your devices easily and quickly in a way that's safe for your data and safe for the planet.
All you have to do is take them into an Apple retail store or send them to us for free by visiting apple.com/recycling to print a prepaid
