A series of leaks and supply chain reports over the last few weeks have claimed that Apple is experiencing production issues with some features such as the 3D sensor and in-display fingerprint scanner.
"Apple's commitment to 100% recycled materials is ambitious, and highlights the need for greater urgency across the sector to reduce resource consumption and e-waste that are causing significant impacts on the environment and human health", Gary Cook, Greenpeace's Senior IT Analyst, said in a statement.
Previously Apple stopped buying cobalt and reassessed its supply chain when the process was identified with having connections to child labor in the Congo.

"They also have control over how the products are designed", Greenpeace's Cook says, "and should be made with an eye toward making products easier to fix so they have a longer lifespan".
For its redesigned phone, Apple has tested multiple prototypes with manufacturing partners in Asia, including some versions that use curved glass and stainless steel, according to one of the people. Last year, Apple sold 78.3 million iPhone 7 and 7 Plus units, so racking up over 80 million sales for its highly hyped upcoming iPhones is an actual possibility.
Still, Apple's promise is a step in the right direction, even if the company still doesn't know how exactly it will come to fruition.
