This robot can tear apart iPhones in 11 seconds. It is called ‘LIAM’ and it is the Apple’s solution to reduce waste. A scanner detects the parts so they can be removed safely.
All parts are organised and re-used it again on different products, Cobalt and Lithium pulled from the battery and Gold and Copper from the camera and Silver and Platinum from the logic board of the phone.
It is currently working on dismantling iPhone 6s only but in future it will dismantle all.
Siri is not happy about all this cannibalism.
