Apple's new 'Daisy' robot is here to eat all your old iPhones

TwitterFacebook

Recycling iPhones is a messy business. The handsets are notoriously difficult to take apart, which means recycling them for parts can easily turn into a time-consuming headache.

Remember the ads for the original Apple iPhone? Some consider those spots to be among the best television commercials ever made for a smartphone because they explained and displayed the features available on the device.
