VIDEO: Apple's Liam takes iPhones apart for recycling

Apple is looking at ways to be more environmentally friendly, and one of those ways involves recycling and repurposing parts.

It has built a machine, Liam, that disassembles iPhones when it's time to say goodbye. This means that components can be repurposed, and materials can be removed and live on.

It's a nifty system that's been in the pipeline for years. Apple says that "True innovation means considering what happens to a product at every stage of its life cycle." Apple opened its event on Monday by speaking about subjects like being environmentally friendly and this is another push in that direction.

Apple will be hoping that other manufacturers follow its lead, looking at not only how devices are built and used, but what can be done once they've served their purpose.
