Why new iPhones?

“I think having an iPhone every year for those people that want it is a great thing,” was Cook’s answer. He also responded to concerns about the environmental impact and highlighted the option for customers to trade in their iPhones, emphasizing the company’s commitment to sustainability. 

“What we do is we allow people to trade in their phone, and so then we resell that phone if it is still working. And if it’s not working, we’ve got ways of disassembling it and taking the materials to make a new iPhone out of it,” he explained.

Looking ahead, Cook provided insights into the future of iPhones. “I think it’ll be carbon neutral and it will be way ahead of where it currently is,” he remarked about the potential changes in the next 20-30 years. However, he remained secretive about the specifics of these advancements.
