The iPhone SE Costs Apple About $160 to Build [Report]

The 16GB iPhone SE costs Apple about $160 to build, according to the latest IHS report.The U.S. version of an entry-level iPhone SE with 16 gigabytes (GB) of NAND memory carries a bill of materials (BOM) of $156.20, which rises to $160.00 when the manufacturing cost is added, according to results from the IHS teardown of a phone purchased from the Apple Store on March 31, 2016. The retail price of the iPhone SE 16GB model is $399.“The iPhone SE represents an amalgamation of three iPhone generations — iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s — rolled into something altogether new,” said Andrew Rassweiler, senior director of cost benchmarking services at IHS. “Despite its physical resemblance to the iPhone 5s, the resulting product is far superior. In fact, the only significant tradeoffs a consumer would make with the iPhone SE against the iPhone 6s is smaller size and lower screen resolution.”Share Article:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Email,   Reddit,   Digg,   Delicious,   StumbleUponFollow iClarified:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Newsletter,   App Store,   YouTubeAdvertise Here
