One of the main drives is to encourage customers to return defunct products to its recycling program, Apple New.

The move sent shudders through Apple's supply chain and has sparked investor jitters over whether Apple may rely more on its own in-house chip technology rather than external suppliers. "One day we'd like to be able to build new products with just recycled materials, including your old products".

When the iPhone 8 finally arrives in September, there's a good chance it's going to look a lot like the Galaxy S8 and Samsung will have stolen much of Apple's thunder.

The company will also bring "True Color iPad Pro" screen technology to its smartphones for the first time that uses advanced four-channel ambient light sensors to automatically adapt the colour and intensity of the display to match the light in your environment.

He expects Apple will pursue its requests with the Centre independent of its Bengaluru plans "because India is a market it can ill-afford to ignore at this point".

"We're actually doing something we rarely do, which is announce a goal before we've completely figured out how to do it", Lisa Jackson said. She added that while they are nervous, they think it is very important because they believe it is where technological advances should be going. That's according to the company's 2017 Environmental Responsibility Report, which was released Thursday and details the firm's ongoing and future initiatives.

Compared with many other tech companies, Apple does seem to be putting in more effort to reduce its impact on the environment.

Now only a small percentage of the tech used in an iPhone comes from recycled materials, but the firm one day hopes to use materials such as aluminum, tin, copper and other elements that come from previously used sources. And for the first time, Apple is protecting enough sustainably managed forests in the USA and in China to "cover all of the packaging [it] use [s] in [its] products". Greenpeace pointed out that it also wants Cupertino to make products that are easier to fix and last longer.

There's plenty still to do - particularly when it comes to eliminating the reliance on "conflict minerals" - but we applaud Apple for taking the right steps.

"This commitment, and Apple's recent progress in transitioning its supply chain in Asia to renewable energy, puts it far ahead of others in the sector", said Greenpeace in its statement.
