Apple may delay iPhone upgrade over supply shortages


22 April, 2017

At the moment, Apple is reportedly working on several prototypes in order to assess which design is going to be the best for the upcoming iPhone, as well as which raw materials can be supplied in large quantities by their suppliers. The tenth-anniversary iPhone is expected to feature a new design that improves the screen-to-body ratio, a virtual on-screen home button, and a glass back that enables wireless charging.

In other iPhone 8 news, it seems that Apple is looking to enhance its already credible green credentials by producing particularly environmentally-friendly versions of future smartphone releases.

According to the source, the upgrades will continue to use the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch liquid crystal display (LCD) screen similar to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. We believe our goal should be a closed-loop supply chain, where products are built using only renewable resources or recycled material.

Apple has set itself a goal of manufacturing products that contain only recycled materials as it tries to "reduce the need to mine materials from the earth".

The ACC Football Championship Game was first played in Charlotte in 2010 and has been played there five times since. It represents another coliseum back-to-back hosting opportunity following the 2020 ACC men's basketball tournament.

Apple's OLED supplier, Samsung Display, seemingly does not have enough to supply the iPhone and its own parent company, which is rolling out the competing Samsung S8 product line this year. This would allow it to end its reliance on mining "one day". Expectantly, the Cupertino-based giant didn't disclose the amount of recycle products being put in the process, as of now.

The company's research concluded that recycled aluminum should come from Apple products rather than from recycling facilities because of the high grade needed for the metal. It has a robot called Liam which is able to disassemble products and recover components that can be recycled.

Still, environmental awareness and the focus on renewable energy has been driving the tech sector forward in recent years, not only because it's good for the planet and us humans, but also because in most cases these approaches prove to be financially beneficial to the companies themselves. Greenpeace senior analyst Gary Cook is one such individual keen to acknowledge that a company sometimes criticized for its industrial practices has made significant efforts in this area.
