The manufacturer uses this purpose solar panels that if there is no space on the ground are placed on the roofs of buildings. Apple wants Jaszcz take better care of the environment and therefore offers the opportunity to view old equipment, which will be demolished by the special robot and then disposed of. Apple also opted for ResearchKit. This is a program that facilitates research. If the smartphone is with us almost all the time so why not use it to gather information on the state of health, which will be used to conduct research?
