Thus, a photo, revealed by the leaker identified as DuanRui on his Twitter account, shows a packaging of the new ‘smartphone’ sealed with a sticker that includes a pull tab to secure the box until it reaches the final buyer.
“The new packaging design removes outer plastic wrap, which avoids 600 metric tons of plastic and brings Apple closer to its goal of completely eliminating plastic from all packaging by 2025, “the company says on its website.
In parallel, the technology giant introduced a series of novelties in its iPhone 13 to minimize the adverse impact on the environment. Thus, the device has 100% recycled rare earth elements in magnets; tin in main motherboard solder and battery management unit is also processable along with gold in logic board coating and camera wiring.
