Apple launches the iPhone 15 series— and talks up its green plans

At its big Tuesday event, not only did Apple unveil its new iPhone 15 and 15 Pro line-ups, but it stressed environmental bona fides and its efforts toward becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

The company also promised: – To remove all plastic in packaging by the end of year. – To use even more recycled aluminium and other elements in all products. – And to cut transportation emissions by 95% through use of surface transport.

Apple continues to invest in new iPhones and has now placed a processor divide between the iPhone and iPhone Pro range; only the Pro devices gain access to the world’s first mass market 3-nanometer chip.

Apple went further than the EU required. Not only did it adopt USB-C for the iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods Pro to help reduce e-Waste, but it also withdrew some of the less planet-friendly accessories from its range.
