Apple announced several initiatives and achievements in environmental issues. One standout unveil is Liam, a robot that takes apart iPhones piece by piece. This way everything can be recycled. This is pretty cool, but raises the question why humans are necessary to build iPhones in the first place. If a robot can take it apart he can put it together too, no?
Watch Liam in action in the video below. This is quite cool, but Apple did not reveal how from production Liam is. They said its a research project.
The live stream of the Apple Media Event started at 10am PDT, 1pm ET. Tim Cook and his executive team present the new products.
Ahead of the March 21 event, Apple was rumored to unveil an 4-inch iPhone SE, a new small 9.7-inch iPad Pro and new Apple Watch models or bands. The new Apple Watch bands include a NATO style nylon line of bands. The latest rumors ahead of the event revealed that the iPad Pro will get either a Flash for the iSight camera or even sport a dual camera. If anything of the rumors materialized remains to be seen as the event is underway.
Apple CEO Tim Cook might make a statement about the FBI case at the event. After the March 21 event, the next big Apple event is the WWDC 2016 likely to take place in June. The iPhone 7, which is scheduled to be released this Fall, has already got as much or even more attention than the new 4-inch iPhone SE.
