Check out this new video from Fully Charged that shows how Apple's Daisy robot disassembles iPhones for recycling.

If the 2.24 billion iPhones sold worldwide could be recycled, could Apple stop mining new materials?! The team developing Daisy, the company's recycling robot, certainly hopes so. In fact, Apple has committed to offering iPhones with 100% recycled cobalt by 2025 and wants to get as much materials currently sitting in retired devices back into the global supply chain. Robert went to see Daisy in action to find out more.

Apple now has two Daisy robots that can dissemble 2.4 million iPhones a year. The robot supports 23 different iPhone models, and the company has offered to license those patents to other companies and researchers free of charge. An additional robot, Dave, disassembles Taptic Engines, helping to recover valuable rare earth magnets, tungsten, and steel.

You can get more information on recycling your device on Apple's trade-in page.
