During a live stream event held on September 12 to unveil the eagerly awaited iPhone 15 and the latest Apple Watch, the renowned consumer electronics brand, Apple, made a ground-breaking announcement. Apple has declared its discontinuation of all products crafted from leather, a decision rooted in the company's unwavering commitment to achieving carbon neutrality across its entire product line up by the year 2030.
