Following the usual tradition experts from IHS iSuppli have analysed components of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and have counted how much manufacture of new smartphones costs for Apple company. So cost of components and works for release of the basic 16 Gb version of iPhone 6 has made 200 dollars.
It is necessary to mention that this cost does not include other expenses, for example, for researches, development, software, marketing and logistics. But if we compare the prime cost and retail price of new iPhone, the gain from each sold device will make up 69 %.
What about iPhone 6 Plus – its manufacture costs Apple only 16 dollars more than iPhone 6. One more interesting fact that the company has found out is that Samsung is still actively participating in the process of new iPhone release. According to IHS iSuppli the Korean manufacturer produces about 40 % of A8 chips which are used in iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. So you can postpone a war but never a lunch.
