Earlier this month, Apple unveiled two upgraded versions of its iPhone and a new waterproof smartwatch.
With prices starting at $649 for the 32GB model and $749 for the 128GB model in the United States, there has been enduring public interest in finding out just how much it costs to manufacture a premium mobile like the iPhone 7.
In a video, CNN Money attempts to show how much it costs to make the iPhone using data from teardown.com and Chipworks – part by part.
Here’s the breakdown:
Logic board: $74
Other parts: $117.50
It is worth pointing out that the cost breakdown is of the hardware only and doesn’t include the design and software cost.
