The report explores Apple's chemical research, recycling and device recovery operations, energy efficiency improvements and use of renewable energy, reduction of waste, support of community action, and more as part of its ongoing goal to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2030. It also draws attention to Apple's recent announcement that it plans to accelerate the transition to recycled materials across its devices.

In addition, Apple highlighted its individual Product Environmental Reports, which break down the environmental impact of any current Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, Mac, external display, Apple TV, or HomePod with regards to source materials, manufacturing, packaging, shipping, use, and recovery. Apple vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives Lisa Jackson said:

This year, we've also made it easier to understand the carbon impact of your Apple devices, and the extraordinary steps we’re taking to reduce their emissions. In our Product Environment Reports, you can learn about recycled gold in your iPhone, the energy demands of your iPad, and the packaging around your Mac. We're transforming so many aspects of the way we make our technology, and with our Product Environment Reports, you'll see where we've made progress and where the hard work remains.

How about letting us replace batteries on our own or swap out displays or back panels? There is no reason those can't be done by users. Too much money being made by charging people stupid money for a new battery that need special tools or forcing people to buy a whole new phone just because it makes more sense than replacing the screen.

While they are making some good changes for the environment they aren't fooling me.

I won't use terms like green washing but honestly i dont believe apple truly gives a **** about ecology .

And I am still shocked they dared say the charger removal was due to ecology concerns, with a straight face and a big smile
