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 move follows pressure from environmental and workers-rights groups that have called on Apple to stop using benzene, a carcinogen, and n-hexane, which has been linked to nerve damage, in the production of iPhones. The company’s new chemical rules are part of Apple’s commitment to protect factory workers and the environment in the production of iPhones.
