Getting an iPhone is a great feeling. There is nothing so exhilarating as opening the box and holding your fresh new phone, discovering new features and enjoying the sleek upgrades. But did you know that the iPhone 13 is also one of Apple’s most environmentally friendly pieces of tech to date? Read on to find out the top 5 most environmentally friendly things about the iPhone 13!
Using more renewable energy
Apple has been working towards using completely renewable energy since 2015. This is a vital step forwards in being kinder to the planet, and the iPhone 13 has been created using mainly low-carbon power. This not only reduces Apple’s carbon footprint but yours, too!
Using less packaging
Everyone loves the feeling of a fresh out of the box iPhone, but some of the packagings has, in the past, been extraneous. The iPhone 13 is packaged using less packaging than ever before – while still ensuring the phone is secure in its box. This results in less waste for the consumer. Not only that, but the box is not wrapped in plastic, which as we know can be incredibly damaging to the environment.
More durable than ever
If dropping your iPhone might feel like your worst nightmare, and having to replace it feels like a headache, you will be pleased to know that the iPhone 13 is one of the most durable models to date. With a ceramic shield and a rating of IP68 (this relates to water and dirt resistance), you may just have to replace your phone less often. This means you will personally be creating less tech waste – which is an increasing problem. And you won’t have to deal with trying that old “putting your phone in rice” trick if you drop it in water.
Less toxic materials
You may not consider what your iPhone is made of, but the iPhone 13 has a completely arsenic-free display screen, and Apple is phasing out all kinds of toxic materials over time. So your phone is safer and more thoughtfully made than ever before.
Maybe you feel like you burn through your fully charged battery a little too fast? Good news! The iPhone 13 is more energy-efficient than previous models, which means that you will need to charge it less, using less electricity. So you will be saving energy and you won’t lose power when you need it most.
As you can see, the iPhone 13 is a great investment if you are trying to be more environmentally friendly. To make it even better, picking up a refurbished iPhone 13 is an even better way to prevent waste and still make the most of that new phone feeling!
