According to an IHS report, the hardware components of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have grown slightly compared to the previous model, the iPhone 6s.
This is logical, as Apple has incorporated several new features in the terminal hardware, and as technology advances, the cost of components also increases.
In this publication we will inform you about the manufacturing and manufacturing costs of each element of the iPhone 7 hardware , as well as its total cost, so that you can see the difference between its final price and the benefits that Apple obtains with each iPhone sold.
How much does it cost to make an iPhone 7?
As the data points out, the bill for the materials for a 4.7-inch iPhone 7 with a storage capacity of 32 GB is € 207 . While in Spain the final price for the consumer would be 769 € .
So the difference between the cost and the price of the terminal is 562 € . That's the amount that Apple takes profits with each unit sold. And it is estimated that the company has sold 75 million units to date ... Do your math. That awful! And that sales of smartphones have declined globally ...
As well we inform via 9to5mac the iPhone 7 costs Apple 36 dollars more than the iPhone 6s. This is due to the implementation of new components and technologies like the tactical motor for the Home button, or the improvements in the camera and in the storage capacity.
