iPhone X has less environmental impact than any other Apple product

“Apple has rolled out an iPhone X-specific environmental impact, [report] with the page suggesting that the high-end OLED device is more recyclable with less impact on the environment than any of the company’s devices that have come before,” Mike Wuerthele reports for AppleInsider.

“Apple notes that the device is absent of beryllium, brominated flame retardants, mercury, and polyvinyl chloride. The glass is arsenic-free, and the frame it recyclable stainless steel,” Wuerthele reports. “All of the device’s packaging fibers come from 175 grams of bamboo, managed forest, recycled paper, or waste sugar cane.”

Wuerthele reports, “The battery itself is mercury-, lead- and cadmium-free.”

On a slightly less flippant note though, iirc, Apple did place a notice on the very first iPods warning people not to eat it presumably because someone thought it was an actual fruit . . . Although this may have been an urban myth.

      1. Seriously, there’s some dumb motherfúckers that post here: TxUser, Melvin, Auramac, Breeze…but, you are the king…it’s like you’ve taken stupid to a new level not seen since the Dark Ages.

        I guess the big question I want to ask you: who ties your shoes?

        1. Does Prime Menstrual Trudy’s Canadian Health Care provide you a nanny that won’t explain the intricacies of velcro to you? Who makes your bed? Who brushes your teeth? Who fixes you Malt-O-Meal?

          jeez.

      1. How about a coal-burning, uranium-fired phantom plasma crop duster? An armada of biplanes of these crop dusters, circling around America diffusing 200 gigabyte download crystals to those who own unicorns?

        I have yet to meet a libtard that understands elementary physics.
