The company is also supposedly working a tag-like hardware device - internally known as "B389"- to help you find non-Apple products.
As per a report by MacRumors, Kuo has stated that all three 2019 iPhone models will come with a 12MP camera sensor which will be a sizable upgrade from the current 7MP sensors found on the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.
It comes after Apple announced in 2017 that its goal "one day" would be to make its devices using 100 percent recycled materials, rather than mining for metals and toxic rare materials such as tungsten and cobalt. Customers can also send their eligible devices at any Apple Store or through apple.com for recycling. And in 2018 alone, it refurbished more than 7.8 million devices and diverted more than 48,000 metric tons of waste from landfills.
iPhones and other smartphones contain precious and valuable metals, including gold, silver, aluminium, copper and tungsten, and rare earths such as terbium, yttrium, lanthanum, neodymium, gadolinium and praseodymium.
Meanwhile, Apple also launched a new, 9,000-square-foot (about 836 square meters) Material Recovery Lab based in Austin, Texas, to explore future recycling processes.
Apple also said Thursday that materials recovered by the Daisy robot are making their way into new products.
Apple's efforts to be the greenest company in tech continue with a major expansion to its global recycling programs.
Strong storms eyeing South Florida this evening
The line of storms moving eastward is expected to linger in the Triangle until 10 p.m. according to the National Weather Service. At least three other people have been killed in the massive thunderstorms that pounded parts of MS and Alabama on Thursday.
Apple said 44 of its suppliers have committed to 100 percent renewable energy for their production of Apple products.
The lab will look for innovative solutions involving robotics and machine learning to improve on traditional methods like targeted disassembly, sorting and shredding, said Apple.
But Apple wants to get even better at recycling. The addition of retailers like Best Buy to the recycling program is just as significant a step forward though because it makes those programs more accessible for the first time to iPhone owners who don't have an Apple Store near their homes.
In order to see the Activity challenge, users must have iOS 12.1.3 and watchOS 5.1.3, or later. Today, Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV.
That means some people no longer must go out of their way to take old devices to an Apple Store.
