This isn't the first time Apple has turned to a robot to aid its recycling efforts.

At Apple, we're constantly working toward smart solutions to address climate change and conserve our planet's precious resources.

From now until April 30, for every Apple device traded in or recycled, Apple will donate part of its proceeds to Conservation International, an NGO supporting causes around better livelihoods with environmental policy and action. And for now, Apple customers with obsolete iPhones can recycle them through the GiveBack program at Apple Stores or on the Apple website. Eligible devices will receive credit that customers can use toward an in-store purchase or put on an Apple Store Gift Card for future use. Founded in 1987, the organization works in more than 30 countries on six continents to ensure a healthy, prosperous planet.

In its release, Apple writes: "Created through years of R&D, Daisy incorporates revolutionary technology based on Apple's learnings from Liam, its first disassembly robot launched in 2016".

Apple's latest recycling robot was revealed, not coincidentally, a few days before Earth Day, in a press announcement summing up the company's recent environmental accomplishments.

Indeed, earlier this month the tech giant announced that they now power 100 percent of their business operations with renewable energy sources such as wind and solar.

Named Daisy, it can tear apart nine different versions of the iPhone in order to recover certain materials inside.

Daisy was developed in-house by Apple engineers, using some of Liam's parts - a recycling of sorts.

Apple announced today that it will be adding Earth Day donations to its trade-in and recycle program. Those that manage it will receive a special achievement and unique stickers that can be used in iMessage.
