Daisy, the new iPhone recycling robot, was just revealed – being put before the public just a few days before Earth Day.

This process was apparently carried out in order to protect aging batteries from causing crashes, but the lack of transparency regarding the issue caused a lot of people to buy new phones due to the slowing of aging devices – a frustrating occurrence that has Apple in the midst of several lawsuits due to these potentially shady business practices. Apple has since taken steps to rectify the issue – offering discounts on iPhone batteries as well as introducing a new battery management feature with the release of iOS 11.3 – but that may be too little too late for those who had taken the jump to purchase a brand new device when the situation could have been rectified by a battery replacement or a lack of throttling.
