As per a report by MacRumors, Kuo has stated that all three 2019 iPhone models will come with a 12MP camera sensor which will be a sizable upgrade from the current 7MP sensors found on the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.

This year Apple has announced that it is expanding its recycling program to include iPhone returned to Best Buy stores in the U.S. and KPN stores in the Netherlands.

Meanwhile, Engagdget noted that materials such as cobalt and aluminum have been recovered from the disassembled units.

For the first time, materials recovered by Daisy are making their way into new Apple products this year.

Scotland Yard has warned protesters the force had "strong plans" in place with a significant number of officers ready to respond. Extinction Rebellion organiser Robin Ellis-Cockroft boasted: "We said we'd disrupt Heathrow and we've disrupted Heathrow".

About 1 million old iPhones have been returned through Apple programs and each Daisy can disassemble 1.2 million devices per year, Apple said. Apple also opened a Material Recovery Lab in Austin, Texas, to further its research on recycling.

Apple has not set a date for when it will reach that goal, though some products such as the MacBook Air already feature aluminum made from melted down iPhones traded in to Apple. Apple also wants to use a crowdsourcing to help users find their lost items.

United States customers can send their iPhones to be disassembled by Daisy which is 33 feet long, has five arms and can methodically deconstruct any of 15 iPhone models. And at the same time, a mid-tier device could actually cannibalize the sales of Apple's upper-end models - which have better profit margins. Beyond a new processor, Apple could add more RAM, a bigger battery, and other refinements such as reverse wireless charging. The lab will use robots and machine learning to improve the company's recycling processes.

Apple has faced criticism in the past that its thin-and-light product designs make it hard to disassemble products so they can be recycled.

Fernandinho reacts to Manchester City’s dramatic night in two words
City equalised through Bernardo Silva a minute later and were leading again after 21 minutes as Sterling scored his second. Perhaps Guardiola & Co. can take solace in knowing they will get another shot at Spurs on Saturday, in the Premier League.

Finally, Apple is celebrating Earth Day, which is next Monday, April 22nd, with an Apple Watch Earth Day Challenge. Although the resolution isnt very much, I really loved how the selfies looked back when I was reviewing the Apple iPhone XR thanks to Apples Smart HDR.

That means some people no longer must go out of their way to take old devices to an Apple Store.

We don't yet know when this combo will be unveiled, but we might here more at WWDC 2019 in June or even the next iPhone event this autumn. We hope other companies do the same.
