A rare iPhone screen could be made from recycled metal
Posted October 05, 2020 05:18:48Apple is looking to recycle some of its iPhone screen material, which could be used to make a high-quality, reusable iPhone screen.
The iPhone screen company, in a video, is shown assembling a metal-reinforced glass screen on the side of a building in a suburb of San Francisco.
The screen is then attached to a glass body that is mounted on a steel frame, with the metal reinforced to hold the glass together.
Apple has been making a big push into the recycled material space, with recycled iPhone screens being used in its Apple Watch and Apple TV models, as well as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Apple has said that recycling materials such as glass is one of the main reasons it makes products that are recyclable.
Apple says its “screen recycling program” will help reduce the amount of recycled glass it uses, and it hopes that by using recycled materials, it can create a more sustainable future for the industry.
iPhone screens have a lifespan of between 30 and 60 years, and the screen material is still being recycled.
The Apple Watch is currently available in six different colours: black, white, rose gold, navy blue, white and gold.
Apple is also using recycled iPhone components for the Apple TV, with a special version that is made from reclaimed glass.
In March 2020, Apple launched the “recyclable” iPhone case, which it says is made of recycled plastic.
The new Apple Watch case features an OLED display, but there are still some parts of the watch that need to be recycled.
