The robot is a successor to Liam, another recycling robot made by Apple that was revealed in 2016. In fact, Daisy was created with some of Liam’s old parts, making it a recycled robot that helps recycle iPhones. Daisy is capable of taking apart nine different versions of the iPhone, and it can disassemble up to 200 iPhones an hour. It also separates parts and removes certain components as it goes.
Along with Daisy, Apple has also announced a temporary program called GiveBack, where customers can turn in devices in store or through Apple.com to be recycled. For every device received from now until April 30th, Apple will make a donation to Conservation International. (Eligible devices will still receive an in-store or gift card credit.)
