Apple Creates A Robot That Can Rip Apart 1.2 Million iPhones A Year

Meet Liam, the apple robot designed to quickly and efficiently rip apart iPhones. via geek.com

As part of Apple’s event yesterday where a new, smaller iPhone SE was unveiled, the company also relaunched its recycling program, which will now be called Apple Renew. The aim of the program is to help stop climate change, and the best way they figure to do that is to recycle as many Apple devices as possible.

With that in mind, Apple has created a new robot called Liam. It’s sole purpose in life is to dismantle old iPhones as quickly as possible. Even though Liam is new, he’s capable of taking apart 1.2 million iPhones in a year. By taking apart we means carefully extracting each part of the device and separating them into different piles of components before they are shipped off to be reused.
