Before Getting Apple's iPhone 8, Recycle The Gold!
(Kitco News) - It’s September and you know what that means…Apple is unveiling a new iPhone. On September 12, the tech giant will be holding an event to showcase the new iPhone 8. But before you think of tossing out your older iPhone, think about recycling the gold. According to the World Gold Council, there is approximately 25mg of gold generally found in smartphones, roughly worth about $1. Seems trivial but according to some reports, Apple managed to recycle 2,204 pounds of gold in 2015 – or over $40 million worth at current prices.
