Why the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max is so expensive?
It is surely a question that might have crossed the minds of most people either using an iPhone or thinking about buying one. Its exorbitant pricing has been the point of discussion many a time over the years. Additionally, a lot of people have also tried finding an answer to this question. The answer, probably, lies under the hood of the iPhone itself.
Websites like iFixit and Techinsights perform teardown analysis of the iPhones by analysing the cost of each component going into the device, individually. The best and the most relative way of answering the question above is by taking an example of the recently launched iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Apple IPhone 11 Pro Max Cost: Teardown
TechInsights and NBC News collaborated to perform a teardown analysis to find the build cost of iPhone 11 Pro Max. The entry-level iPhone 11 Pro Max has a retail price of $1,099. If we go straight into the components, the first one is the 6.5-inch screen. It costs Apple about $66.50 per unit – the most expensive component in iPhone 11 Pro Max. The Samsung battery unit inside the iPhone 11 Pro Max costs about $10.50. The much talked about triple camera set-up costs even more than the screen, amounting to $73.50. Some of the equipment inside the phone – including the likes of the processor, circuit boards, modem and the memory – cost around $159. The rest of the sensors, wires, PCBs cost around $181.
When isolated, the components should cost a sum total of $490.50 per device. That is quite far away from the retail price of the device at $1,099. You may be thinking that Apple must be minting billions by selling iPhones with such margin. You are highly mistaken.
