TechInsights experts have estimated the cost of the components of the new flagship smartphone Apple. For this, the iPhone XS Max with 256 built-in memory was disassembled. The total cost of the components reached $ 443 at a retail price of US $ 1249. In general, the starting price for the iPhone XS Max is $ 1099 for a version with 64 GB. For last year’s iPhone X with 64 GB, TechInsights counted the cost price of $ 395.
All the main components of the iPhone XS Max were slightly more expensive than the iPhone X. The most expensive was the display, it costs $ 80.50. In second place is the 7-nanometer Apple A12 Bionic processor for $ 72. Note, before blaming Apple for acquisitiveness and the pursuit of super-profits, you need to take into account a small nuance. Such calculations do not take into account such costs of the manufacturer as the development of hardware and software, design, logistics, and marketing.
