Apple Bans Toxins Used In iPhone Screens That Could Make Factory Workers Sick
Apple launched a four month investigation into the use of the above mentioned chemicals after activist groups China Labor Watch and Green America co-promoted a petition urging the Cuperitno company to stop using benzene and n-hexane during iPhone production.
Four months and nearly two dozen factories later, Apple was unable to find any evidence substantiating the claims that the two chemicals were in some way endangering the half of million factory workers who assemble iPhone devices. Even so, Apple decided to err on the side of caution by voluntarily banning the substances.
Apple is expected to announced the iPhone 6 a press event in September. Based on numerous leaks and filings, it appears there will be two main versions of the iPhone 6 -- one with a 4.7-inch display and a second model sporting a 5.5-inch screen.
