Apples Bans Potentially Hazardous Chemicals
Apple says it will ban two potentially hazardous chemicals during the final assembly of iPhones and iPads, The Associated Press reports.

The company’s new chemical rules are part of Apple’s commitment to protect factory workers and the environment in the production of iPhones.
