Browse This Page

Research firm IHS Technology says Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus costs $211.50 and $236, respectively, in terms of hardware. The most costly feature of the new iPhones is the 3D Touch which is marked at $52.50. This is followed by the A9 processor at $22. The 16 GB NAND flash chip is believed to cost $5.50 approximately, and WLAN module and battery are estimated around $6 and $4.50.

The on board audio hardware, NFC controller, accelerometer/gyroscope, barometer and compass come in together at $18. Other miscellaneous items that include enclosures, circuit boards and connectors roughly add up to $42, along with assembly fees of $4.50 per device.

Now that you have all the required info, why wait till the 16th of October for the launch of the new iPhones? Tinker away and put your own device together. Who knows where a little bit of ambition and optimism might take you?

  • Tushar Dixit

    Touch screens were there way before iPhone came in, but in iPhone 1 he marketed it like he was God.
    Android users have been using SwiftKey for years. Yet in iPhone 6, it was presented like a miracle. Android offers quad core and 4 GB ram for half the price at what apple sells dual core. Marketting genius.

  • Ankit Chaudhari

    banav naa maag

  • Vivek Tiwari

    Yes. Jobs was a genius. He would sell people bislery as iWater at 100rs per bottle and they’d buy it.

  • Rutuja Chaudhari

    Ankit Chaudhari this will cost i-phone 6s for 14000 only!!!!

  • Viraj Shinde

    You should consider the huge overhead cost they incur

  • Ujjwal Konar

    Price for new composition and technology , when any one beat it price cut starting .

  • Tushar Dixit

    Well, in most gadgets, around 50% cost is for warranty, and Apple provides good after sales support. Keep that in mind. Still there is a hell lot of margin because they targetted the PREMIUM segment. Jobs was a genius.

  • Rohit Agarwal
