Apple no longer uses plastic outer film for the packaging of iPad 10 / iPad Pro 2022

Apple officially released the iPad 10 and iPad Pro 2022. Apple says the new iPad models are designed to minimize environmental impact, including the use of 100 percent recycled gold in the plating of multiple printed circuit boards, a first for an iPad model, recycled aluminum metals, recycled tin, and recycled rare earth elements...etc.

When it comes to the iPad 10, Apple says the new iPad is also the first iPad model to use recycled copper, which uses 100 percent recycled copper in the motherboard's foil. Apple pointed out that all iPad models meet Apple's environmental standards - high energy efficiency and no use of mercury, brominated flame retardants (BFR), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and beryllium.

At the same time, the new iPad uses a redesigned packaging material that no longer uses a plastic outer film, and 97% of the packaging material is fiber-based. The new iPad Pro is 99% fiber-based.

According to reports, Apple has now achieved carbon neutrality in global corporate operations and plans to achieve 100% carbon neutrality in its entire supply chain and all product life cycles by 2030. In addition, Apple aims to completely remove plastic from the packaging by the end of 2025.
