Apple is charging a truly ridiculous amount for its new iPhone, no matter what camp you fanboy around in, especially when you consider there are equal, if not better smartphones for half that cost available: I'm looking at you Nexus 5, Moto X, OnePlus One. But how much does it cost the Cupertino-based giant to make the new iPhone? Under $215.
The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 costs $200 to make, while its bigger brother, the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus costs $215. The news is coming from analysts over at IHS, which have taken apart the new iPhone, estimating its component and manufacturing costs. The $200 and $215 price points are for the 16GB versions of the new iPhones.
The most expensive part in the new iPhone 6 Plus is the 5.5-inch display, costing $52.50, while the 4.7-inch panel in the iPhone 6 costs $45. The iPhone 6 Plus has a slightly higher component price because of its more expensive battery, and camera. And for all of this cost, the iPhone 6 Plus even bends, which is a nice extra feature.
