Anniversary: The Apple I Will Be 40
The Apple Event on 21 March 2016 starts with the welcome by CEO Tim Cook.

Tim Cook presents a video for the anniversary:
The Iphone And The Assassination Attempt By San Bernadino
But Tim Cook has even more to say:
“We need to know how much power the government should have over our data, and over our privacy. I’ve been humbled and deeply grateful for the outpouring of support that we’ve received from Americans across the country, from all walks of life. We did not expect to be in this position, at odds with our own government. But we have a strong sense of responsibility. We owe it to our customers, and we owe it to our country. This is an issue that impacts all of us. ”
t is about the ongoing conflict around the unlocking of the “assassin’s iPhones” (we reported).
Tim Cook’s position is full of conviction. Data must be secure;Apple is also responsible for this and will not shrink back.We are anxious to see whether the recent hearing in California will lead to the case.

Environmental Protection And Recycling With Liam
Lisa Jackson has some data on environmental protection at Apple in the luggage. We are picking up two figures that we want, regardless of the industry, for each company:
93 percent of all Apple devices use renewable energy worldwide

More interesting than statistics is the robot Liam, which dismantles old iPhones and ensures that more components can be recycled, for example, iPhone boards for solar panels.
