This is How Much it Costs to Build the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus

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?

Arre but voh component cost hai. Who will take into account the designing, setting up manufacturing units, marketing , prototyping, paying employees and stuff. These r the stuff u guys oversee.

That is a cost of Innovation you dumb idiots; they spend millions of dollars to research new things so think again when you feel that they are ripping you off! That is why people buy iPhones, brand value ftw!

This might cost around $250 and Apple pockets the rest. Unlike Samsung, they must be costing like a 100 bucks

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.

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.
