Apple built a giant machine that could tear apart the devices into bits within seconds. But don't worry the iPhone maker has turned into an iPhone destroyer for the sake of the environment. On the coming occasion of Earth’s Day (this Sunday), Apple contributed its efforts to help the environment by introducing Daisy. The machine is mechanical unit integrated with programs to help in acquiring the recycling targets of the company. 

Daisy takes the old phones and extracts the valuable metals and other materials from it that can be recycled for the manufacturing of the new iPhones. Two years back, Apple launched Liam, the machine was introduced for the same purpose of recycling iPhones, Daisy is a more advanced version of Liam. In order to make the planet healthier so we don't need to leave for Mars in the future (what Elon Musk wants) Apple is optimizing the old iPhone’s materials. The company aimed to promote the trend of making products using the recycled materials.

The smartphones we use are composed of the many valuable materials including platinum, lithium, copper, gold, and steel. Instead of throwing these materials away Daisy provides them to Apple for manufacturing new devices. The Apple’s monstrous machine is so fast that it is capable of tearing 200 iPhones within an hour. Daisy is designed to recycled the nine version of iPhone for now. Once the iPhone given to Daisy, it starts the process by scanning it thoroughly for pre-defining its movements accordingly. The iPhone will be taken down into pieces even before you have a complete glance at the machine. However, Daisy is designed to disassemble the iPhone very precisely without damaging the material at every step. 

“In recognition of Earth Day, we are making it as simple as possible for our customers to recycle devices and do something good for the planet through Apple GiveBack. We’re also thrilled to introduce Daisy to the world, as she represents what’s possible when innovation and conservation meet” Apple noted in its press release

In order to convince the more customers for giving their old iPhone to recycle Apple is offering alluring cashbacks. For every old iPhone given to Apple, the owner will be a certain credit that can be used on Apple Stores or Website while purchasing anything under Giving Back program. In addition to this Apple will also be able to make more consumer to upgrade iPhone, good idea though. Meanwhile, Daisy is busy in eating the older iPhones to provide resources for manufacturing of new one.
