Meet ‘Liam’ – How to recycle Apple iPhone

What happens to an iPhone when its useful life is over? Apple presented on Monday –next to the iPhone and iPad Pro SE 9.7 inch – the system you want to unmount phones that no longer serve them to recover materials that can be recycled, such as silver and tungsten .

It is called Liam and is a robot that the company had developed three years -you can see how it works in the video above-. In principle it will be used to dispose of iPhone 6, but the company intends to implement this system for more devices. True innovation means considering what happens to a product at every stage of its life cycle. Liam disassembles your iPhone when it’s no longer functioning, so the materials inside can live on.

Liam can unmount an iPhone 6 in 11 seconds in order to extract from it materials like aluminum, copper, tungsten, cobalt, gold, silver and tin.

Each hour can disassemble 350 units, representing 1.2 million iPhones per year.
