Apple wants to end reliance on mining "one day"

Additionally, the report also stated that Apple's suppliers have also promised to use renewable energy by end of 2018.

Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone lines in September. The world's most valuable tech company is apparently having a pilot study of the dual-lenses for the selfie shooter, an upgrade from the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which have single camera sensor.

Aside from the new design and OLED display of iPhone 8, the latest from Apple is expected to boast new augmented reality capabilities and other camera features.

Supply shortage for organic light-emitting diode (OLED) could be on the way with iPhone 8 considered as one of the largest potential contributing factors. Its new Environmental Responsibility Report, for instance, highlights sustainability goals that include a plan to eventually only make all of its products from renewable or recycled materials. For aluminum in particular (probably Apple's single most-used material across all its product lines), the company says it's important that Apple's own high-quality aluminum not be mixed in with lower-quality scrap aluminum during the recycling process, as is now common practice at recycling facilities.

Apple rejects current industry best practices by forcing the recyclers it works with to shred iPhones and MacBooks so they can not be repaired or reused - instead, they are turned into tiny shards of metal and glass.

International Monetary Fund forecasts growth of less than 1% for SA in 2017
The IMF's latest outlook for 2017 is a slight upgrade from the 3.4 per cent global growth it had forecast in January. Threats to global trade and integration, however, were given the most emphasis by Obstfeld.

Apple's current policies ensure that their own recycled products are worth a minimal amount of money, which makes it more hard for recycling companies to stay in business.

The company also revealed that with two Liam lines running, they can disassemble 2.4 million iPhones a year. "Unlike aluminum, there is an existing market supply of recycled tin that meets our quality standards." - the report read.

The ultimate aim is "to one day end our reliance on mining altogether", the company said, without specifying a date.

More than that, Apple is allegedly going to use OLED displays on all iPhones by 2019, and in turn, the anticipated iPhone 9 will likely sport the screen technology. "We're also continuing our quest to make our products and processes even safer by pioneering ways to reduce and remove toxins".
