Does your iPhone really get recycled when you give it back to Apple? This report says it might not

Maybe I’m in the minority, but once I’ve wiped the phone, given it away or turned it in to Apple, I don’t care what happens to it at that point because I’m too busy enjoying the new one.

Anyway, this reminds me of a time when restaurants used to give leftover food to the homeless until someone complained. Now they have to throw the unused food away of which some people are calling wasteful. It’s a catch-22.
